Agree with BenLi; I've been beating the crap out of the Hardrock Sport Disk I purchased back
in April and I don't worry about the frame. I'm sure the wheels will give out before the frame.
I have a FS long travel but wanted something different from time to time that I could just hammer
on and if it broke no big deal. Instead, it has surprised me.
I keep my drops less than 3 feet, it's been run through some of the rockiest, rooty, mud slewn
trails that West Virginia can throw at it and I haven't worried about the frame. An aquaintence
of mine has been riding his Hardrock since it first came out and no problem with that frame.
I weight between 200 to 205 and ride the bike hard. I'm sure the GF is just as strong.
Get the one that feels best to you and ride that sucker till the wheels fall off, replace 'em
and do it again.
