    If anyone needs a particular shot, let me know.

    The tires were changed at my request.

    It's entirely too shiny. Go get some dirt on it.

    There's a tiny bit in the chains. Will do though.

    I have a few questions for you. Have you got specs for the Hardrock Sport? Does the sport come with discs? What about the comp and pro? Bike does look nice.

    Looks cooler than the 05 one.

    It's nice they decided to use sram shifters/derraileurs on it, they look better even if they work about the same.

    They didn't have the Comp and Pro at the bike shop. The sport comes with the Tektro V Brakes. I'll post the specs for you.

    Frame Premium A1 Aluminum
    Fork RST Gilla Plus-T-6, 100mm
    Headset 1-1/8" Threadless, selaed ball retainer
    Rims/Wheels Specialized HR26 made by Alex, 36h, double wall, CNC sidewalls
    Hubs Joy-Tech, double-sealed
    Spokes 20mm stainless-steel
    Tires Enduro Sport, 26 x 2.2 wire bead *changed to Crossroad EX on mine
    Crankset TruVativ X-Flow
    Chainwheel 42/32/22
    Bottom Bracket TruVativ Power Spline
    Chain Shimano IG-31
    Front Derailleur SRAM 3.0
    Rear Derailleur SRAM SX-4
    Shifters SRAM SX-4 Trigger
    Handlebars Alloy, 38mm rise
    Tape/Grips Specialized Enduro
    Stem Specialized Mobius Alloy
    Brake Levers Tektro RS-360
    Brakes Tektro "V" linear spring
    Pedals Dual sided, composite body, steel cage
    Saddle Body Geometry Sport ATB
    Seat Post Alloy micro-adjust
    Seat Binder Alloy Collar with Quick Release
    Accessories & Extras Chain stay protector, reflectors, clear coat

    They changed the frame and graphics. Components are new SRAM 06' stuff with an updated RST fork. I'm barely getting into biking but from research on this website, I decided on the Hardrock. The bikeshop had the 05 and 06 next to each other and I noticed the saddle was changed as well. Price was raised ~$10 dollars as well, it was $360.

    Your bike looks sweet. It almost makes me wish I'd waited three more months to buy a bike. I like the look of the bike a lot more than my '05. I also like the SRAM stuff on your bike over the Acera stuff on mine.

    Why did you switch tires?

    Thanks for the compliments guys. I switched tires because these tires offer less rolling resistance for on road commutes while still having some knobs on the side for some off road excursions. The enduro knobbies make for a rough ride on road. The bike store did it free of charge.

    You'll have to give us a report on how this X-4 stuff performs. X-7 considered the cutoff for "quality" in the SRAM lines.

    X-4 looks like an Alivio equivalent.

    All things being said, having a 1:1 derailleur is still better. You can upgrade to X-7 grips or thumbies without having to replace the derailleur.

    Avid BB5 mechanicals
    SRAM X-7 drivetrain (short cage rear)
    9 Speed Cassette
    Sun Single Track Rims!
    Sweet black and white splatter paint job!
    Truvativ cranks/splined BB
    dual front chainrings with bashguard

    It is one sweet looking bike!

    Awesome specs and the price went up like ten bucks???!!!

    This is truly strange... I went to my LBS for a 'Zokes fender (not for me, but that's not the point) and I checked out the '06 Hardrock Sport and the drivetrain was all Shimano, no SRAM!

    I think the '05 looks (and is?) stronger than the '06, but the '06 has a sort of slick look about it.

    For 06, I think Specialized is using SRAM because Shimano has run out of non-rapid demise.

    Good decision for Specialized. SRAM rocks!

    That sounds about right. In comparison, my '05 Hardrock Sport cost me $340 USD.
