My New Specialized

I'm getting a Specialized Hardrock A1 FS 2002 model on Friday!!!! Anyone have this bike? Do you like it? This is my first mountain bike, and I hope to have fun with it. Although I won't be using it for as much off roading as ya'll probably do.

Congrats Quatney! I don't have one but it should be a great bike. Post a pic when you get it.

Specialized has applied the "Hard Rock" name to various models over the years. My son's has served him well, although I did have to replace the bottom bracket last year (and went for a crank upgrade at the same time).

Hi Quatney,

Enjoy your purchase, and get it dirty this weekend . Over here in the UK, we have a Bank Holiday, so I'll be looking forward to getting a few miles in on the saddle.

Cheers

Rich

Yes, you have to put it through its 'initiation' and get it muddy.
