Thanks man. My Specialized is a very base-model mountain Hard Rock from 2001. Three tube Cro-Moly. The new ones are aluminum. Just did a road thing recently and MTB tires stomped my tail. I'm thinking of doing a "build" conversion on it to make it more road ready. I'm not a small person, so those little tires and CF parts scare the hell out of me! Maybe just the tires, bar, stem and pedals for now. Ooops! Didn't mean to turn this into a bike thread!
