Well, it feels like a new bike anyway.
I just got my 20 year old Specialized Hard Rock back from its two week stay at the Community Bicyclist. I got a new job recently and am doing 20 mile RT commutes. I'm going to be using the bike a lot, so I thought I'd better get a complete tuneup. New wheels, tires, bottom bracket, cables, brakes, chain and everything adjusted.
It's like a new bike. I almost went over the handlebars the first time I clamped the brakes.
Its been fun commuting on my Bacchetta Giro 20, but I have to admit I like how the Hard Rock feels like an extension of me.
