just sharing my current ride which i pimped up

(not a specialized) just my own version

original chrome 7005 aluminum frame(make unknown mid 90's) wit steal rigid forks

i wanted to bring back the old hardtail 1990's type mountain bike back wit my own twist, a chunky frame and mid range urban slick tyres and shiny stand out bling but done well not chavy

i stripped down bike so only original frame and forks are still used,i built the wheels wit blue anodized hubs
added carbon seat and lightweight aluminum stem
aluminum and anodized handlebar,headset,break levers,bar ends,
new shimano shifters and gears
added v brakes wit blue blocks
an old crank from a dumped bike
funky blue pedals
26 x 1.95 slick urban road tyres

anything that came anodized i would put on bike
anodized blue back lights,frog light on front

as i did this bike on a budget,i will be upgrading rear cassette to silver wit silver chain and shimano deore shifters, rear derailleur and new shiny crank when i got more cash,so it will look even more epic

this bike is a real head turner and i get many compliments from people when out riding it... :D

  • It's not a Specialized?

    Why have you stuck Specialized stickers all over it?

    It's got no suspension and has FSR stickers as well?

    Needs more cowbell.

    ,so it will look even more epic

    More epic than what???

    Not sure why it has FSR stickers when you are trying to recreate the 90s hard tail look .....????

    Each to their own, but why would you want to pass a bike off as a full sus Specialized when it isn't?

    'sus' means suspension.
    You have put FSR stickers on the bike. FSR is Specialized's rear suspension system.

  • I heard she has a strange odour of salmon fish.
  • Oh. This is clearly going to receive a whole variation of responses.

    Well, as long as you are happy with it, then great! It seems like you have gone to a lot of effort to rebuild this, so that's good.

    It's not a mountain bike, its a road bike it has road tyres on.

    Get that monstrosity out of here and inflict it up the lycra guys.

    How are the eBay pedals / saddle? They are very light for the cost.
  • cooldadcooldad Posts: 32,904
    Ebay don't make pedals, or saddles, or anything else except gazillions of $$$$$$$$

  • Is it even a road bike? Or some sort of hybrid cheese dream?

    It's a mountain bike with semi-slick tyres. I have two mountain bikes, one for off road and one for road. Does an off road 4x4 Landrover sease to be an off road vehicle if it has road tyres??

    Anyway, I think he's done a good job of pimping up his "mountain bike".
