I've sort of been mountain biking for the last year or so and i was interested in purchasing a new bike. I have a really crappy department store dual suspension bike that i thought looked really cool at the time, but now i've realized that #1, it's way too heavy (over 40lbs.) and #2, the niether the front supsension nor the rear are effective at all. I've been looking at the Hardrock line, mainly the Hardrock Sport because i don't have that much cash to spend (i can get a hardrock sport for $500 in Canada). I've heard that the frame can take a lot of abuse and the bike is worth the money. So what does everyone here think? I will mainly be doing XC and street riding and i weigh about 130lbs. Would the bike be heavy or light for me? any feedback would be appreciated..
