Rides a 1992 Specialized Rock Hopper
Shot on State Street in Downtown Santa Barbara, CA
In for repairs.

I always think of older mountain bikes the way I think of trucks. You always see a lot more older trucks on the road more often than you see older cars. The same thing goes I think for rigid mountain bikes from the 80s and 90s. They were built tough and the simplicity of the components and builds seem to keep them going for longer. George here is the original owner of this gem from the early 90s. At time when there weren’t that many technological innovations for mountain bikes. Companies like Specialized were making the same bikes from 1985 to 1995. The only differences were the colors. In any case, I’m glad a lot of these bikes are still out there. They give people the means to go farther and that’s what counts.
