    Saw my stolen bike yesterday!

    So about 2008-09 someone stole my at the time favorite bike I had ever owned, a 1998 (iirc) Specialized Hardrock. Not an upper echelon mountain bike I realize, but I loved that bike.

I also got a wheelset, fork (Sunlite chrome springer) and a few other small parts from Husky. The wheels have steel rims, 11g spokes and a Shimano coaster brake hub. Chainring is...

    HDratz intro

    Hello all; I'm glad to be here! I've been reading the forum for probably about a week and figured it was time to join. I grew up in the late '60s and '70s with a succession of Schwinn bicycles, then minibikes and motorcycles, cars and trucks etc. Always been into pretty much anything with wheels...
