Grove Innovations Hard Core

People say that Groves don't grow on trees... they're right. It's taken another seven months to collect all the parts to complete the frameset (Hard Core fork and Hothead bar/stem not pictured) but finally it's ready to go home for a refresher.

I learned to trust Bill's judgement with the last Hard Core he did for me and so this one will be redone in Painter's choice and I won't know what it looks like until it arrives back here.

This specific frame is one of the early, proper Hard Cores as opposed to the later series that used an Aggressor rear end. Specific features include Suntour dropouts and the sculpted/ovalized down tube.


  1. Hey my bike!! Glad to see it's getting restored. I still have 4 Groves in my collection.
