    For grips, nothing compares to the basic kraton rubber Ritchey True Grips. They can be found for $5-7 for a pair, are comfortable, and last forever. Ignore the other variants of True Grips.

    Mine is blue, built 70,000 bikes before yours, and matches the catalog specs. The oldest ones I've seen have all been blue. Not sure if the blue is a coincidence or not.

    Offer the crankset to the winning bidder of the frame/fork/bars at market value if they want it. It's not likely to add its market value to the package unless two people want that specific crankset...

    Repaint it as a 1986 Stumpjumper Team. You already have some of the parts needed to convert it to Team spec, and the Team paint job would pay for itself in added value to the bike. Plus, you look...

    Most of the 80s and 90s Specialized MTBs were built pretty much the same in terms of frame construction, but their tubesets differed. The reason a Hardrock might not be as competent off road is due a...

    I would part it out or put it back to all XT kit. The wheels, crankset, and seatpost are not original spec and are worth some decent money. It would not be a shame to part it out, it's an awesome...

    I saw this when it was first listed and I'm pretty sure it had a BIN option for $15k. Someone might be paying a lot more than that.
