I'm in no way, shape, or form a mountain bike guy. I bought the bike to do "some" trail and go around the neighborhoods in Virginia Beach. I'm a Harley rider and experienced metal worker. If you are looking for quality and a very WELL made bike, look no further!
I recently decided to switch to a 2015 rockhopper from a hardrock and must say I am very happy with my decision. I love my hardrock but my rockhopper climbs better, shifts better, stops better, and I am just all around more comfortable and faster on it. I will say that the pedals it came with were a joke but that's my only complaint.
This has been my final choice after more than a month of checking entry level bike reviews and visiting local bike stores. It's not about the reviews that made me like it. It was it's simplicity and frame and build that made me like it the first time I saw it at a LBS. 29ers are just awesome for beginners just like me, gives me the confidence to jump off obstacles and roll over things. Love it! Tried it off road and like it even more. Could have had a Shimano Deore group set with the price but the trade off is worth it. Also, heard that not too many have this bike in our country. I'm highly recommending it.
This is my first bike. After consulting with the guys at the shop, I was convinced that this was the bike for me. I'm 43 YO 6'5"-250 lbs., the bike handles great. I like to ride hard. I've taken some serious falls and the bike is a good as new. If you can spare a few more bucks, get rear suspension - regardless which trail your ride, it will be a more comfortable ride. Moreover, I did some research, I could not find a better price. Purchased at the Southlake, TX store- Great guys.
Very good store and was very well attended by Gary, took away all my doubts and sold me a very good bike.
My first Specialized bike and I love it. The style and the weight fits me perfect. For x-country or rail trails or single track, works great. I did upgrade the chain, pedals, chain rings setup a 2 chain ring with bashguard and brake pads. Not that impressed with the brakes, so they will be upgraded soon.
Moutain Bike Good
I bought this bike like 2 weeks ago and I have to say that I'm so satisfied with the product. I've driving it for almost 250 km in different terrains like paviment, ground and rocks and the performance of every single component is incredible superior than the other ones. The hydraulic disc brakes are so safety and effective and the SR Suntour suspenssion has a good performance. The Shimano Alivio 9-speed rear derailleurIn and the shifters are awesome, the power transfer is so good! In this bike everything is the best. Good Job Specialized!
I'd say everything about this bike is great except for the rear derailleur. Putting too much force down at once sometimes make the chain pop out of place. But beyond that it's a great bike. Definitely worth the money and a good beginner-mid level bike.
This bike is very fast on the single tracks, and handles well. Climbing steep hills is great with the 27 speed trans. I also love the hydraulic brakes. At first I was uncomfortable with the extra wide handle bars and crank diameter, but once I got used to them, the bike is that much more agile. the only downside to such a wide crank is occasionally hitting roots and rocks, and timing pedal strokes to get over logs and large rocks.
