well i went to the store yesterday...
i had a little dilema i had to take care of before heading to the LBS so i got to the LBS about 10 mins. before they closed, so i walked around until a guy there asked me if i needed help, he proceeded in telling me the details on the bike (specialized hardrock)..I was excited, but decided rather than trying to fly through the whole buying experience (getting sized, test riding the bike, get proper tools and extra goodies) i told him i would be back Saturday afternoon! WOOOHOOOO Im really excited!
He had 2007 Models on clearance, and i think he was selling the Specialized hardrock w/ disc brakes, hyd. fork, etc. for $550...the base model Hardrock Sport was listed for $389, but im sure if it is a 2007 model it will be lower...as i was walking out the door i saw the bike, an XL frame Specialized Hardrock Sport (ALL BLACK)!
My question..should i go for the more upgraded model (disc brakes, etc.) for a little more, or just stick with the cheaper base model??
Thanks again in advance!
