Details

Take back the trail and show rocks and roots who's boss with Specialized's Rockhopper Comp 29er. Its big wheels, svelte A1-aluminum frame and SR Suntour suspension fork work together to turn once-formidable tech sections into smooth highways of loamy dirt. Other legit touches found on this rig include the reliable Stout rims, a slick 2 x 9-speed SRAM/Shimano drivetrain and hydraulic Shimano disc brakes that stop on a dime in even the nastiest conditions. You'll also dig the Specialized aluminum components and comfy Body Geometry saddle.

    Love this bike. I opted to upgrade to M396 brakes and a 180mm rear rotor. At 6'2" and 290, feels nice and tight to me. I'll be riding this bike for at least ten years, with maybe a fork and tubeless upgrade. I can't say enough good things about the folks at Bicycle Sport Shop on Parmer. They have made my experience getting back into mountain biking great.

    Always been on the road before I purchased Carl. Love this thing, just point it and it goes where you want, without having to worry about surface. Found it surprisingly fast when needed and a great climber. Sits great and glad this in my rotation.

      Comments:

      Great bike, but for the price I would expect a little higher quality front derailleur. The Acera rattles and rings right from the get-go. That's just a small complaint and an easy fix/upgrade. Other than that the pedals are pretty cheap so you can expect to upgrade those too.

        Nice bike, nice colour, good price for final product. I use to ride a 26 Merida TFS Matts 2011, this is my first 29 for me for tasting.

          I use this bike for trails, and family rides on the back country roads and rail trails. Works great all around and looks great too. I bought the red and shortly after my dad bought the charcoal.

          Great bike for recreational and competitive mtn bike riders. I upgraded the tires to S-Works Fast Trak, Stan's No Tubes, and Shimano XT-770 cassette 11-34t. Future upgrades: Rockshox or Fox fork, XT Hollowtech Crankset, carbon handblebar, stem, and seatpost. Overall, a great, durable bike at a great price!!
