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.

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.

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.
