2012 Specialized Hardrock

Specialized takes entry level to the next level with the Hardrock. Crafted from their A1 Premium aluminum, the frame is light, durable and nimble, while the SR SunTour fork offers up 80mm of bump-busting travel. Its tough Alex rims will stand up to years of commuting and singletrack riding, and the SRAM 21-speed drivetrain will get you up any climb. Plus, the Hardrock comes with powerful linear-pull brakes, a suite of low-maintenance Specialized components and a supportive Body Geometry saddle.

      The past year or so I have been getting into mountain biking. I was looking for a good beginner bike that wouldn't break the bank and would allow for future upgrades. This Hardrock fit the bill. I absolutely love the blue coloring, too.I have truly enjoyed riding this bike for the past year and love [...] as well. Employees are knowledgable, helpful, and polite.

        My wife and I each bought a bicycle from [...] the same day. I had my heart set on this bicycle after doing a lot of research. I had to persuade my wife into spending the extra money on a good quality bicycle. I absolutely refused to buy one from a big box store. This Hardrock does everything I want it to do and more. The ride is great, it shifts smooth. As I mentioned the lack of lockout on the forks, not a big deal. Even if I had it, it would probably be of no use to me. I feel confident when I ride it all over town and through the paths at recreational parks. The bike is very appealing to the eye. It does great on pavement and rough surfaces. At 30 years of age I'm glad to have added riding back into my lifestyle.

            I recently purchase this bike. I have approx 100 miles on it so far. The rim brakes stop fast than my friends disc brakes. This is light and nimble and the double wall rims are very sturdy. I love the SRAM shifters. They are very ergonomic. I loved the bike so much I talked my sister into buying one just like it and she loves hers as well. I am new to MTB and this bike is great for me.

              After almost 500 miles on this bike. I have very few things to complain about. Other than normal adjustments after riding several miles and some lil operator comforts. This bike is a great value.

                        Bought the bike last week, took it our for a ride with my wife and boys -- Bike/horse trails. Loved the comfort of the bike and am very pleased with it thus far. Looking forward to getting a little rough with it in future rides. I want to test the shocks and really see how the SRAM shifters will hold up. I'm a 46 year old dude who is not into competing; just looking for a nice comfortable ride and I found it with this bike.
