    I'm anti Trek...it's hard b/c 2010 looks like it's gonna be a pretty good hear for Trek. The Session is pretty exceptional...on paper. Never ridden one.


    I'm still anti-Trek.

    Go to http://www.bikepedia.com/ and you can do a side by side comparison of the two.

    I chose the Hardrock Sport and got a 08' leftover from a LBS for $350.00 Good luck with whichever you choose. Here's a pic of mine:

    Thanks to everyone, i appreciate it. Sadly, I've only heard bad stuff about bikes direct and i kind of want something new or newer, or at least in good condition. Thanks again to everyone! And for Aire, what a great bike, but my local bike shops sell the 09 for 500 and i don't think i'll find any 08s

    A great deal won't come looking for you. I searched for an 08' and finally found one at shop that was 100 miles (one way) away. They are out there and if you cannot find one you should at least be able to find a dealer that will sell you an 09' for at least $50.00 dollars off the $500.00 price tag.

    Go to the Specialized site and it will show you all the dealers within a given radius of your location and start making calls, That's how I found mine.
