    09' Specialized Hardrock vs 09' Hardrock Disc vs 09' Hardrock Sport Disk???

    was lookin at these things and man its confusing....are they all the same frame? forks? etc? just one has discs and one doesnt....am i REALLY missing something? i mean could i still just get a regular hardrock and it would have all the same connections and so fourth to hook up discs/better stuff in the future(initally making it a "sport disc")???

    not to mention this shop also carries 07s and 08s which makes it even more confusing...is newer always better?...could really use some help sorting this out...

    Well Throw away the first one as it has no disc brakes. And check out specialized's website b/c it has all the specs on that bike. I have a Hardrock pro disc that i got in 2002 and ive rode the thing so hard that most of the moving components need serious work or replacing by now. Its a great bike. Im sure you will love it. Overall the Sport Disc has better components than the normal disc. The fork is the same but pretty much ever other moving part is better. I honestly dont like that fork. My Hardrock even though the stock fork was a Rock Shox Judy TT, at least it has 100mm of travel. The fork on this new one has only 80mm of travel.
