Specialized Hard Rock 1991

Hi there! After riding my parent's good old Specialized Hard Rock for 3 years (including winter), It seriously needed an overhaul. I striped all the rust (an the few paint spots that were still holding on) and repainted it. I also converted it from multi speed to fixed single speed because during winter, it's a pain in the ass to deal with frozen freewheel and shifters. So here it is...

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:

When I use it, It feel like a tank. I mean, you have the feeling that you can go anywhere in any condition.
