Specialized Rumor FSR 650B lets you have your cake and eat it too. It climbs well, it descends with confidence, it looks amazing—it's the perfect jumping off point into the world of trail riding. Even better, every component of the bike, from the handlebars to the crankarm length, is tailored for both women and rider size. And just as importantly, the lightweight M5 aluminum frame features Women's 650B Trail Geometry that creates a roomy, responsive, and confidence-inspiring ride quality with a low standover height. The reliable RockShox/X-Fusion suspension are tuned just for you, while powerful Tektro Gemini hydraulc brakes deliver braking when you need it. Finished out with an excellent Body Geometry Myth saddle, every aspect of the Rumor was scrutinized and tuned for women.
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.
