    They're both nice, but both very similar. I picked white cause it has a little more variety going for it.

    Voted white too. The white one will look better in the forest. White never looks good against a white background.

    I suppose I'm the odd one out, I like the black one. However, it seems there have been a lot of black paint schemes from all makers lately.

    Oh...I thought we were just going to go to the top and push the bikes down...no riders so we truly see which is faster.

    My bike tried that a Schweitzer on Sunday. I did a nice little OTB down the Bowling Alley and it kept tumbling. Evidently its balance and form is no better than mine - - it only made it another 15 ft. downslope.

    +1 for white. The black with the gray fork looks odd to me.
    Pulling the trigger as often as possible.

    That's a 2010, right?

    I just picked up my 2010 Hardrock Sport today. I test drove a 2009 model and then ended up ordering a 2010. (For some reason it was actually $60 cheaper.)

    Anyway, the picture of the bike I ordered showed a bright fiery red color with white trim. Unfortunately, in person, it's more of a maroon-ish red and the trim is silver.

    I dig the colors on your bike though.

    Sweet Bell. Put a decent fork on that thing and you've got a pretty nice bike.
    Like a circus monkey on a stolen Harley......
