Hi..From New York

Hi, my name is Will and I'm 14. Last summer my dad wanted to get a new bike and move up from his wal-mart next bike. So we went to a local bike shop and he ended up purchasing a hybrid..I forgot exactly what it's called but I know it's something eastwood. Anyways while we were there we saw this late 80's speicalized hardrock that was for sale for 80 dollars with new tires. My bike was to small and not holding up well so we ended up buying it for 80 dollars. It is in great shape, and now this winter I am in the middle of getting it all cleaned up and painting it..I'll have pictures up when I'm done. I've been riding since I was 4 and this is my first non-walmart bike. It fits me perfectly and works great despite that it's old. Well that some of my biking history, I can't wait to post more and be part of this community!

Hello Will, it's good to hear that both you and your dad are doing the biking thing!

Where are you in New York, and have you found the Northeast regional forum yet?

Welcome to BF!

So, no sign of spring yet, eh? Or have you been able to get out with some winter cycling?

By the way, you may think your Hardrock is old (I don't think it can be any older than 1987, and if it is, someone will be along to correct me), but in the world of Classic & Vintage bikes, your bike is a youngster.

It's a decent bike too. Now get out there and put it back together before the snow melts .
