    Well since you can go buy a brand new hardrock for around $350 I wouldn't pay more than $75 for the 03 model.

    My brother just bought a 2009 Hardrock and it was about $480+tax here in NE Tennessee. And that was after talking the LBS down some. They said they don't have the margins on the cheaper bikes like they do the higher end stuff. But if it was in really good shape, then I would agree with MyStolenBikes and say $75-$100 bucks tops.
    Remember, no matter where you go....there you are.

    I have an 03 hardrock. I'd feel like I was ripping someone off if I asked 75 for it....of course, it's lived a hard life.

    Thanks all, this guy was asking $150 for it. This is why I logged onto this forum! I'll leave it to you pros for good advice. I think I'll keep looking for a good entry ride. Any suggestions on what a good entry bike to look for for $300-$400. I might stay away from someone elses problems!
    Thanks again

    Here is the MSRP prices of Hardrock from the Specialized web site.(link below) They list the base model for $390 but you can negotiate the price down to $350 which I did with mine.
