I just bought a 2014 Specialized Hard Rock a few months ago. Honestly, I am not that comfortable on it. I decided I think its makes more sense to get a comfort bike than a mountain bike at this point. Question, is it possible to modify the Hard Rock to turn it into a comfort bike? I don't want to lean over the handlebars anymore, it kills my neck to look up while leaning, over. Does it make sense to mod this bike or just sell it and get a comfort bike? I hate to get hit with the huge depreciation on a bike that's a few months old.
If I should get a comfort bike and sell this thing, which bike to get? I need something very large (xl) I am 6'5" and want to ride for hours without my neck or arms aching.
