Last Week’s Rockhopper Build

Last week we received a small order of 2014 Specialized bikes for the shop. So, of course, I pulled out the new Rockhopper to build.

All the packing finally off. Sometimes it seems like it takes almost as long to unpack the bike as to build it.

Torque wrenches are a must.

And here is the completed Rockhopper.

As you can tell, I like to pull apart bearing areas so the photos reflect that.
