Shimano Alivio

I don't know the exact year of the bike, guess it is around 1995. It has CroMo double butted frame (not the aluminum frame used in newer model). It is my personal preference - steel frame. I finally put the Marzocchi XC700 fork on and upgraded the front brake too...It rides better than ever.

Conversion

I have a friend who just got a mid-90s Rock Hopper from his dad. He's in the process of trying to convert it into more of a hybrid/commuter (skinnier tires, maybe some new rims, new bars, etc). Any advice/cautions for this project?

It is very nice frame far

It is very nice frame far better than today's line. This one I believe can fit either suspension or rigid fork. In your case, I'd try to put a rigid fork for the city configuration.
