Slapped slicks on the old hard rock a while back and made it my commuter/run-around bike in the Gulf. The newer trail rigs:

'93 Specialized Rockhopper, full XT hardware:


'96 Giant ATX 980 (looks damn close to brand new...):

Disagree, I think those tubes are ugly and the crankset is hideous. Does have big time bling factor though.

Not a fan of the 3 arm crank idea, but overall, nice.

It was just a poser picture, 40 degrees outside at the time, and I had been riding all day. He and the camera person
just rode there for the picture, 1 mile from the house, then they were headed back. Does look funny though .
