Specialized Rockhopper

The bike as I got it.

Specialized Rockhopper from approximately 1996.

The bicycle is intended to be an all rounder and a mix of components from both the road and mtb side. A real all terrain bicycle.
My thought is to run the bike with the fattest tires possible, hopefully a pair of Compass 26″ x 2.3″ Rat Trap Pass TC extralight tan.
