2008 HARDROCK Sport w/ XTR upgrades
#1
This a Sweet bike. I have added and XTR drive train all but the crank. It is great. Tonight I just added the new wheels and hydro disc brakes. It belongs to a friend who bought this bike from a student for $200. He caught the upgrade bug and put another $500 into it. I rode it and it is a really sweet bike.

Just wanted to show you guys.

Sweet!

I've got one like that (same year, but in silver), they are awesome frames to work off. I've got old-style Saint brakes and various other toys and it's utterly awesome.

This bike is no longer in this form. All of the parts have been stripped and the frame itself has been upgraded. Very exciting stuff. I'll post pictures soon.
