    When did Hardrocks stop being US Made?

    Just curious when these Specialized were sent overseas to be made.

    LHTs use 26" wheels in sizes 54cm and smaller and 700c in 56cm and bigger. Different wheels, different tires.

    Now what I don't know is why they didn't just stick with Conti tires through the whole line. Those WTBs are soft, roll slow, wear fast, and are easy to puncture.

    Edit: You might get a better answer over in the touring forum.
