WTB retro mountain bike

Posted on
  • Hi team,

    Looking for a retro mountain bike to take on some simpler single track and gravel adventures. Not too sure on size requirements, I think I need a 21" frame? (I'm 6'1" if that helps) Canty brakes, rigid fork and hard tail preferred. The plusher the tires/rims/clearance the better really! Modest budget of £150, can't afford some of the more bling and modern bikes, so something older is probably better!

    Does anyone have anything they're happy to part ways with?


    EDIT: I mean to post this in the wanted forum, can a mod please move it? Or I can repost it there.

  • I have a 1999 specialized rock hopper if that fits the bill?

    £100 would secure it

    I always thought I was 6 foot but a recent medical has me slightly under.

    It has slicks on at the minute, still got the knobblies.

    Hard tail and no front sus. Think ot is a 19 inch.

    You are welcome to have a look and a try, e10

  • Muddy Fox courier in black with yellow splatter paint, size must be in the region of 21”. Xt components of various generations with everything working well. Can take pictures tomorrow if interested?

  • Thanks both, can you DM/post some pics? Both sound all good.

  • Hey this still available?

  • also intersted in photos!

    saddle has a rip and the grips are original - probably need to be replaced

  • I have a specialized race elite with raised chain stays. Would sell if there’s interest

  • 21” Orange Vit T2 here, Pace RC30s, XT, Hope, Middleburn, ControlTech, blue ano etc - would be after more than £150 though!
