Keep in mind I know nothing about bikes.
I am shopping for a used bike. I ran across this rockhopper. The add says its a 23inch frame. No other details wear added.
My concern is I do not know which version of the bike it is. I THINK its a 2008 I am trying to find the exact model. If its a comp disc 29, disc, pro disc ect....
I am a little confused about the speed. The specs say
"CASSETTE FREEWHEEL SRAM PG-830, 8-speed, 11-32t"
So its a 8 speed right?
I have some concerns as well. It seems the front shocks do not match any of the shocks in the photo's in the link above.
If you look at the rear frame there is some kind of black tape rapped around it. By the way what is that section of the bike called?
Is it normal to tape that section?
