i thought you were getting a bruiser...hard rocks are good too, my cousin had one...the thing was a tank even though it was the low end model. thevishfiles.com shows what they can do...

damn right granted, thevish was a very smooth rider, but still, WOW.

i WAS going to get a bruiser, but i really didn't like the feel of it, to be honest it kind of felt 'cheap'... got me a hardrock instead

I know exactly why the Bruiser felt cheap. Unlike many other bikes, including the Hardrocks, the bruiser doesn't have any flashy decals or special paint job. There are a few things, it sasy "B2" in a few places, but they're hard to pick up on at first.

The other thing would be, the bruiser's have short handlebars!

actually ithought the hardrock was incredibly tacky until i saw it in real life... then i thought it looked hella cool.

i've always loved the bruiser's paintjob, it's so... cool...

but i honestly thought that it felt really cheap...

So...

This is a pretty sweet topic for discussion.

Almost as sweet as the new thread that outlines the new Hardrock owners only membership protocol.
