    1986 Specialized Rockhopper I converted to a touring bike w/ drops, half-step gearing, slicks, etc. Love it.

    7 speed cassette? I swapped out the freehub and cones to fit a 8/9/10 freehub on my XT hub

    Still holding on to that Panasonic as a possible touring frame for the future.

    The rear is spaced for a 5 spd so I'm using a new IRD 14-28 freewheel. Works out with a good gear range with the 50-46-28 front rings. I'd hang on to your Panasonic. 26" touring is the way to go IMO.

    For some reason that stem is really working for me. How did you find it? It seems like the perfect fit!

    They were kind of common on older 80's MTB's. Try searching for "dirt drop quill stem"

    I think Nitto still makes a version too, but in silver

    ^ That color is rad. I took mine on some trails with the slicks and it was definitely a challenge but really fun. I'd love to find a 22" 80's Stumpy one day.

    its the distortion on the lens im not actually cross chaining, i actually cropped the image because the distortion was so bad that the rear wheel was a oval.

    My '77 Fuji S-10S, an everyman's bike from the year when I graduated high school. I rode to the pharmacy yesterday and had to stop to take a call, deciding to snap this picture because I liked the sun angle on my leaning bike.

    The drivetrain is 2 x 6 (52/39 and 13-30T), original SunTour Vx and SL derailleurs, bar end shifters, and SunTour freewheel. It has the satisfying "clunk" of a SunTour upshift, and requiring slight overshift and correction for downshifts.

    It has the original Fujita Belt saddle, too, which I find most comfortable. I run 27 x 1 1/8 Paselas. Anyway, it's my general purpose bike and I enjoy riding it.S_10S 2014.jpg
