I am not very knowledgable about all the components and build quality of mountain bikes, as I have only been a roadie for 3 years. I am looking to expand my biking horizons and get into mountain biking. I am looking to just get into some trail riding and whatnot.
I am looking at maybe a Specialized rockhopper comp disc or 29er. My LBS is a specialized dealer and I ride all specialized road bikes. My question: how is this bike for an intro bike and do you think it will last me or will I get a bug a start upgrading fast. If that is the case, I want to look into a bike that will last me a little while. Any other comparable bikes I should look at? Anything I should specifically look out for good or bad?
Thanks in advance!
