Delphine's Specialized Rockhopper

This is her first mountain bike with mostly original bits from when her mom bought it in 1994. The first thing she did as soon as it became her's was max out the tire clearance with 2.2” Continental RaceKings and add a pair of brake boosters. Next she’ll likely swap the handlebars to something a little wider and more upright.

Rigid mtbs from the 90s are perfect for managing the tight and twisty trails ‘round these parts and for learning how to read the trail and pick lines. We’re excited to see how this bike will evolve as her riding progresses!
