This has been my main bike for a long time and has done nearly as much travelling as I have. It was bought some where west of Boston way back in 1997 before it was shipped to Ireland and i cycled it around Cork for a year mainly going in and out to college for my final year. Once I finished college it moved with me to Dublin and was the bike i did the Wicklow 200 in 1999, but i had the good sense to fit it with slicks for that. It was sent to Cork for 6 months when i move to New Jersey, i bought a Specialized Allez over there to temporarily replace it however i missed the more heavy duty off road cycling so one trip back to Ireland i brought the allez back to Ireland and came back with the rockhopper, same bike box which was handy. We both travelled around New Jersey for the next year, cycling those roads isn't much fun as Americans (at least East coast, new jersey Americans) don't understand road cycling for fun. At the end we both returned to Dublin, Ireland and spent another year with the wet weather and muddy roads grinding the gears to pieces, doing more damage in 3 months than a whole year in the states. Once again the rockhopper was relegated to a year in the shed in Cork after i moved to Sydney, during that time i had to take a step down to a second hand mongoose, heavier frame and no suspension. Yet again i went home and this time shipped the bike to Australia which arrived 2 months later and was nearly quarantined due to some mud on the frame but the bike was cleaned there and they let it go. So the last 3 years the bike has been commuting between Bondi and Balmain, but alas it may have had its day. There are a few things that need fixing, a few things need replacing and i would love to upgrade to disc brakes. This topped with the seat post which has finally become fused to the frame due the the salty air around Bondi. So this i hope captures the bike in all it glory at rest in the sun with the sea in the background and the memory of the 20,000 kms of cycling the two of us have travelled. A bit of specs : It is a 17" rockhopper and the only thing that remains of the original bike bought 9 years ago is the frame and the quick release level of the seat post (now of no use) It is an 8-speed grip shift, a high end SRAM components that i bought 5 years ago and still changes gears perfectly. Unfortunately grip shift sucks when it wet, so that is bad for Australia coz you're nearly always sweating and Ireland coz it always raining. The front cog is a 48/38/28 as i like to push a big gear. The brakes are standard XT V-brakes about 6 years old, XT hubs and mavic rims, the front brakes have finally warped the rims so that they squeal worse than Ned Beatty in Deliverance. The front fork is a marzocchi. The handlebars are carbon fibre and was one of the main reason i left the states the second time. It was the only thing i could think to put on the bike as i had replaced every thing else and i realised that if i'm spending all my time in bike shops looking for things to replace on my bike and i'm foolish enough to drop $100 on carbon fibre handlebars then i have too much time and money. Which is not uncommon when you have no girlfriend. That has since been rectified as have my trips to bike shops.
Bike Trailer - loaded trial.
Three loads of laundry and handling is great! Bag cost = $20.00. Possible upgrades to include: - quick release hitch - Clevis pin, perhaps. - skateboard truck bushing instead of rubber washers between the tongue and the rack. This would require a longer bolt. - find some 12" bike wheels for the trailer. These $5.00 handtruck wheels are pretty heavy and the tires are wearing alarmingly fast. - maybe use the stem from the Stinger to clamp to seatpost, insert that into longer tongue (approx 2.5' of 1.125" tubing needed) I'll have to see if my legs would rub on the stem with it clamped to my seatpost first.
