    Hardrock Sport

    Hey all. For my birthday I got 600 bucks (canadian) for a new mountain bike. I love taking my unnamable bike out on many a trail and drop (even if it sucks really bad). I'm very excited to get a new bike that will treat me better and im looking at the Specialized Hardrock Sport. My friends got one and he's pleased with it. So is it a good choice?

    I just got one, exactly a month ago. I'm very pleased with it, just like your friend. Only thing I didn't really like is the RST fork and the rims untrue quite fast. The frame feels nice and sturdy though. I think you'd love this bike, I do trails and urban assault on it and it treats me great. Test ride it at your local bike shop and see how it feels like.

    I have one also, and I'm very pleased with it. DC is right, the rims do get out of true pretty quick, but I haven't bent mine further than what I did in the first week, since.

    And the brakes still work well, since they aren't bent very far.

    What's DC? (I figured in this case it wasn't anything to do with Dual Crown )

    I haven't gotten used to the initials DC yet anyway cause in 95% of the games I play and forums I visit I just use the nick "Skycat". lol
