    Afnug Everything you can imagine is real

    I think this was its first outing, I was shocked that I took out a sparkling bike and came back with it in that state, now fitted with a Thompson dropper post.

    Noanet Woodands, Massachusetts, from just over an hour ago. My hardtail -a 1996 Mongoose Rockadile updated with disc brakes, fork and dropper seatpost. Been experimenting with a Panaracer Swoop 26x2.4s..... Seem to be pretty good for the riding I do.

    Edit: yes I do know the saddle needs adjusting, have to take care of that!

    Just dropped a very scary *to me* £££ on a new (see used) FS on the bay of E.

    This will be my 1st Mtb for 20 years as I am a ......... 'Roadie' really but hate winters on road.

    I dare not post a photo yet as a) it is ripped from ebay, b) is not a physical thing until collected & c) don't want to tempt the "ripped off" fate.

    Safe to say it's my biggest gamble/ebay purchase ever !

    Just having a 'dabble' mate.

    Might as well stay away from the ice, potholes & $#!T€ drivers on my skinny road tyres & go get mucky !

    It's here .....


    & here ......


    Has a few battle scars but just cosmetic & I think it needs a good service & front wheel spokes tensioning but overall satisfied (would have loved a 'Minter' but was never gonna happen).

    It won't stay like this for long ......

    *I have plans*

    I'v shown the prettier side, there are some paint chips, several in fact mainly on the non drive side & a big one under bottom bracket shell.

    Currently has stock Sram 2x10 but looking at a change to 1x11/12, new bar, stem, grips, flats & a new wheel set built up (I already have the rims), new tyres *maybe* & a dropper post !

    It's a carcass basically !
