I found a Specialized RockHopper large frame bike in the paper for $100. I checked it out and it has Shimano Deore derailers, and is a very nice bike. I'm 6'2" so a large frame was a must. Heck, this thing is almost TOO big... almost
I broughtit home and started cleaning it up a bit, and I think the rear wheel may need to be trued. Its got a VERY slight left/right wobble near the seam of the wheel. The bike is otherwise perfect! Its older, a 1992 and so is a rigid frame- exactly what I've been wanting.
Of course, I couldn't ride it to work today, its raining too hard and I'm not ready for a rainy commute... yet
Take care and thanks for everyones help this forum has given.
