the latest incarnation of Sven the Hardrock, 1x9 with narrow wide chain ring for simplicity and weight.
Was out last night non clutch Deore XT mech and didnt skip a beat or drop a chain, only lost the chain after a OTB moment which I dont count.

ok build all done to my satisfaction. Put Big Apple commute tyres on it for 2 weeks but I just felt dirty riding it...like cheating on a girlfriend or something. Few mph gain, and catches a few stares but totally uncontrollable on sand/loose gravel and wet mud. Knobblies went back on it and it looks A LOT better for it.

My nephew was up from Florida and we built this up from scraps, bits and pieces laying around in the basement. its a 2002 HardRock Pro that got an aerosol overhaul first then a Marz Drop-off Tripple, WTB wheels,raceface cranks and chainring, I only had an 8 speed shifter, deraileur, and cassette laying around so that is what it got. He had fun on the Mountain though so that is what counts. I have taken to riding it around town now but the Drop off has got to go. Paint didn't come out very well though so I might repaint it.

Time to bring this thread back to life!
2011 Hardrock Sport disk 29er.
Got it for $180 off craigslist
- Replaced ford with Rockshox Reba 10mm
- Did a ghetto tubeless setup with gorilla tape and some wtb valve stems
- Trail king 29x2.2 tires
I think thats it for now. Want to make it 1x10 so im looking for some gentle used parts for that.
