[IMG]well i want to critically review my 2005 hard rock pro ,and update this thread whenever something new comes along .this thread is focused on bad stuff on the HR .i would like to keep this thread simple and informative ,so if you post about your HR please keep it that way .you should also include information ,like your riding style ,your weight ,seize ,which HR you have and which upgrades you have on it.pics of material exhaustion or brakage would be nice too .well here i go :
i am 23 ,185 pounds, 5.7"and live in the flatlands right now ,so i exclusivly do urban riding and commuting,but i will take this bike to europe in the summer for dj and allmountain in the alpes .i am new to urban so i don't do all that crazy stuff yet .biggest thing i guess are 4 foot drops from standard loading ramps to concrete flat.my 2005 pro ist stock ,but with a 2003 marzocchi dj 3 ,130 mm travel.
here the first bad thing about the pro ,the seat ,not only is it very uncomfortable ,it also shows first signs of exhaustion where the metal parts connect to the plastic parts of the seat ,and i have only been riding a couple of times!!!
also ,which i not nessesary a bad thing ,but the HR is almost too light for me(feels like a toy) .well light is good ,right ,but it seems like it makes it harder to jump etc. for a beginner like me because it makes the bike harder to control.but also i have been riding steal frames all my life so it is probably just a matter of getting used to it .
here are pics of me and the bike and also of the seat .[/IMG]][/URL]
