Is this the right bike for me?
Hi guys, I've been looking around for a new bike. I will be doing mostly rides around the suburbs, but I want to get a MTB because the trails around me are very rocky, very rough and steep; so not really suitable for a hybrid.
I'm thinking of getting the Specialized Hardrock Disk 29 (http://www.specialized.com/au/en-au/...sc-29#features).
I am a beginner MTB rider and don't want to do anything crazy either; I want to be safe.
Will this bike be reasonably good on the road? Are the 29'' wheels the right choice, for ease on road, and on steep trails for a beginner?
Does anyone have experience with Specialized MTB's?
Thanks for your help - much appreciated!
