not uncommon when you're running a single chain ring.. the chain is much shorter so your derailleur gets pulled far in the low gears

Check out this sweet Rockhopper!!


"AWESOME OFF ROAD BIKE! Try finding a deal like this anywhere. Get a $1200 bike for $300. Specialized Rock Hopper, great knobbies, hardly used for a steal! Gel seat and 2 water bottle hubs! Sweet ride!"

Quick - when was the last year Specialized offered non-suspended Rockhoppers?
.
.
Do you think the lack of decals is suspicious? At least the forks aren't bent....

Yes, but even more suspicious are those blobby welds, I don't think I've ever seen a Rockhopper that looked so poorly made.
