Late to the Lockdown project game.....
Let's see if building something gravel/bike-packingesque can satiate me over the coming winter weeks.
Shell is a ?mid 90's Rockhopper that belonged to my father/took up commuter duties for me in secondary school.
Fixie had some issues so I've been using it to commute for a few days and I'd forgot just how much fun it was....
Ridiculously bad brakes.
Gearing all over the place.
Surface rust in places.
VERY short Seatpost.
The vague plan is to source some half-decent 26" wheels and convert to 1x10 (Deore Xt?).
Maybe some budget paint job come spring/summer (Spray.Bike?)
Make a frame bag.
Hash out some adventure plans in the meantime
Welcoming any suggestions for improvement/things to avoid in this build- I'm a bit clueless when it comes to offroad...
