The top one. If you're going full suspension, you might as well pick the later model. Plus the gray one's fork looks blown.

I'm coming around to the '94 theory too. Maybe the block letter Hardrock logo was a euro-only thing? It's frustrating that most of the catalog scans are German, and that some years have a lot of gaps...

I did too much sleuthing on this, but didn't turn up anything conclusive. My guess would be 1996. 95 and 96 were the only years with this pointy version of the Hardrock logo on the down tube. The...

I think 1990 was the only year they used the outlined "SPECIALIZED" wordmark on the top tube. The German catalog shows the bike in blue and magenta, but the US must have gotten plain ol' red instead....

Quoting Vintage Trek website: "92, sour grape with purple tinted clear coat and white decals"

$50 is a heck of a price for a carbon bike with full XTR. Hope you enjoy it!

I took another photo of my '86 Diamondback Ascent an hour after installing a pair of Continental RetroRides. Now I'm trying to not let the dirty stripe down the centers drive me insane. This is...

Thanks for answering my question about the Brooks. Once it got a little warmer I rode for a bit on it and confirmed my suspicion that it wasn't rideable as-is.

I've seen people stuff foam under...

I haven't had a chrome bike since I traded my '05 Pista to a friend. I'm always on the lookout for chrome, but it usually comes at a premium. Your Ascent looks good! What sort of tire clearance did...

Here's the 1986 Diamondback Ascent I picked up last week, putting me at n+1 in 2015. I should have taken a photo of the tubing decal, but the frame is double butted Tange MTB cr-mo, and the fork is...

I think it's an add-on. It's pretty common for rigid mtbs to be "upgraded" with a suspension fork. They changed the saddle, stem, and shifters too. Plus it looks like they were liberal with frame...

Here's a mostly-stock 1994 Univega Alpina 5.3* I picked up on CL for not a lot of money. I took these pictures after I washed most of the mud and garage gunk off of it. The frame could still use a...
