New Hardrock Build

Postby jimothy78 » Mon Mar 04, 2013 16:49 pm

Just to show my latest build.
2007 Hardrock Pro frame,
Funn Fatboy bars
LX/SLX drivechain/shifters
cheap and cheerful RST forks,
Clarks S2 brakeset,
Wellgo V8 pedals
El gallo wheelset (rebranded Halo Spindoctor hubs)

Weighs nearly as much as me ;) - will be trying to shed a few pounds as parts wear out and get replaced.

Losing the chain is an odd way to shift weight.

lol - good spot. Stupidly forgot to take photo before first ride, so photo was taken after the post-ride wash. Chain had been removed for deep clean and re-lube.

Nice the handlebars look a little odd they look back to front, might be the angle of the photo though.

No they are just lent forward. I'd take a look at your hydro cable to the rear, should go the other way really

Huck, Chunkers, you're both right that things aren't quite as they should be. This was a bare frame at 6pm on saturday and thrown together in a couple of hours for a ride first thing Sunday. As the cockpit was the last thing to get done and as I was quickly running out of patience I'm afraid it was all a bit "hit and hope"

Luckily the only thing that let me down on the ride was a dropped powerlink, but luckily I had a spare in the bag :D

Will update when I've had a chance to tweak things a little.

Good work for getting it together so fast, wasnt critersizng you :D . Im just dropping my P1 AM frame in favour of a Pinnacle Iroko 1, but my gf has a black hardrock of the same age which is going strong.
