Hardrock progress

OK so the Hardrock, despite being powder coated white, is looking more Death Metal at the moment, which is kinda the look I was going for. It’s got a new skool front end, lucky for me the old Hardrock had a 1 1/8th steerer so it allowed me to go from threaded to non threaded. New skool suspension (I’ve never owned suspension on a bicycle before!) and new skool brakes up front.

I’m still waiting on some parts as you can see in the picture above. A new crankset is on (though not in the picture) and so too a single speed kit (I know it’s a trend at the moment, I’m loving the moment though!).

Also, I’m converting the rear end as well now into a disc brake set-up. I’ve bought a cheap disc brake adaptor on eBay (as my frame has no rear disc mounts), a new fatter rear tyre and I’m already trying to hunt down bargain basement 2nd hand parts (disc hub rear rim and rear disc brake).
