    Follow my build

    This afternoon I'm throwing together a bike for winter. I'm posting my progress to Facebook:

    http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...&id=1008607209

    I made the album public. I'm thinking you should be able to see it without necessarily having to have a Facebook account.

    cool rockhopper.
    no fenders?
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I'm hoping the rear rack will be enough to protect my backside. I do have some fenders, but the Rockhopper frame isn't fender-friendly. I always end up having to cobble the fenders on, and I'm never happy w/the results.

    I've taken note of the new, Surly Troll. Now there is a fender-friendly frame if I ever saw one. The Troll frame is perfect for the riding I do in winter. I don't have the money for one -- yet.
