I always had the impression that a Rockhopper frame isn't really strong, it's light, for recreational XC riding, but if you push it beyond that, you're overreaching it's limits.
When I was working at Gotham Bikes I saw a guy come in with a cracked head-tube on his Rockhopper (it was an early 90s model), he didn't even notice it, I pointed it out to him... Specialized warrantied the frame with a 2001 or 2002 Stumpjumper frame.
I think the Hardrock frame is stronger, but a little heavier.
I rock peas on my head but donít call me a pea head.
Bees on my head but donít call me a bee head.
Bruce Leeís on my head but donít call me a Lee head.
Now please excuse me, I gots to get my tree fed.
