    I just bought this bike on Friday, and today I picked it up. It is the first bicycle I have owned since I was a teenager. I just turned 40 and have an almost 2 year old daughter. I had gotten very out of shape, so it was a gift to myself to help me get into better shape, so I can be around for her and my wife. This bike is very well built for the price. I was a bit worried when I first started looking for one, that I would have to spend a ridiculous amount of money to get something good. This is an excellent entry level bike, but I feel that it could last me a very long time. Thank you to the staff at the cypress location for all of their help and advice. I am looking forward to many a fun ride.

    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!

    Comments:

    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.

    About Me

    Comments:

    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.

    Overall a great choice

    By LoneRanger75

    About Me

    Comments:

    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.

      Awesome specs for an XC bike!

      About Me

      Comments:

      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!

      Pretty good, overall.

      Comments:

      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.
