Photo submitted by Joe Roettgen, “This is a photo taken in Longview Lake Park in KC, MO after a recent ice and sleet storm. The bike is a 1996 Mongoose Rockadile, converted to a ‘chubby’ bike using 2.4″ Panaracer Swoops. This bike was recently purchased off Craigslist as a winter project and has turned into quite the capable bike for snow and deep woods. I recently converted it from 7 to 9 speed by swapping the freehub body and adding 12-36t cassette, but derailleurs remain stock Shimano STX and STX-RC units. Cantilever brakes were upgraded to STX as well. This vintage bike suits my old and slow style very well.”
