Been a right while since I last posted, have since moved to Belfast. Rockhopper is currently in pieces with a barnacle fork alongside it waiting to be rebuilt.
I quickly built up another 26” bike for commuting, out of various parts I had acquired off of here and a lovely 1989 Kona lavadome frame.
Featuring the original wheels from way way back that came on the rockhopper ( given a little tlc)
14t single-speed kit for the 7 speed freehub
Some lovely middleburn cranks donated by @Maj (did need a little shim to stop creaking)
1” threaded to 1” threadless adapter, with a 1” to 1 1/8” shim and it works a charm!
Real fun rat bike to blast around the city.
