    A picture or two might help.



    This one is a 1988 model as far as I can figure. The fenders and rack were added later.

    Sometime between 2000 & 2003, Specialized added a suspension fork and updated the frame geometry to accommodate. If the bike has a rigid front fork, it's older than that. If it has a suspension fork, it's newer. Either way, whether or not you're getting a deal at $100 is a matter of condition.

    You can check out the Hardrock entry on BikePedia for more info. Click on the different model years until you find a bike whose parts match the one you're referring to.

    And whether it fits and whether you'll ride it.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"
