I'm currently riding an '04 Specialized Rockhopper (base model, hardtail, completely stock), and have basically become a little tired of the weight of the bike. I love it, but its a little too heavy, plus i get completely rocked when riding trails.
Thus, i'm looking to move into a full suspension, but was wondering if you guys could give me input/make alternative reccommendations for me to try.
Right now, i'm contemplating the Specialized FSRxc Pro vs. Specialized StumpJumper FSR (base model).
Any opinions on that?
Also, are there any other bikes to consider that might be better for the money? I'm looking for a light weight bike with a full suspension from a reputable brand.. hopefully 2k or less.
Thanks for your input!
