Details

Specialized's 120mm-travel Rumor was designed from the ground up for women. Everything from women's-specific parts, to the geometry, to custom suspension were considered. All that translates to a fun, fast, confidence-inspiring ride on any trail. With some of the best standover height in the business, the Rumor's fit is second to none. The aluminum frame is light, agile, and ready to take on the rough stuff with 120mm of FSR rear suspension. More fast and fun parts include a 120mm-travel RockShox fork, quick-rolling 29-inch wheels, and an easy-shifting Shimano/SRAM 2 x 9-speed drivetrain.

Specialized FSR Rear Suspension

Specialized's FSR suspension offers plush travel, incredible control, unbeatable traction and an overall awesome ride because it's completely unaffected by pedaling and braking forces. This design also eliminates "bobbing" for optimum climbing and acceleration. You'll be amazed.

Tapered head tube and fork.For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.
