Hello Ebayers,

THIS IS A NO RESERVE AUCTION!!! I'm going to let the collectors decide what this is worth. It's a road bike, it's a mountain bike, it's a hybrid. WHAT IS IT!?! "Rock Combo"
Turn lots of heads with this super rare, 1989, 21-speed Specialized "Rock Combo" Cyclocross/Mountain/Road Bike!!!! Frame is a 23" and is intended for a taller rider(5'11"-6'5"). The geometry has a 72 degree head angle making it a little quicker in the front end like a road bike especially w/ the wide Specialized BB-1 drop bars. This vintage bicycle has almost all original parts w/ some upgrades (New seat, tires, bar tape). Please google this bike to find out how rare and awesome it is. The Rock Combo seems to be Specialized's early attempt at a 80's hybrid, and it really makes me wish this vision had won out over the 700c, flat-barred path bikes we got instead. The bike is basically a Rockhopper/Stumpjumper frame (triple-butted steel) with a steeper head angle (72 degrees), more BB drop (45), and the funky BB-1 flared drop bars. Components are mostly original MTB stuff: SunTour (XCD-6000) hubs, Aero brake levers, and shifters (7-speed); Dia-Compe brakes; nice Specialized double-wall rims; Sugino crank.
Only 500 ever made before they cut production!!! Price when new:$700-$800.
