After selling my trek 6000, I ended up buying a hardrock sport, black, v brakes, I think i ll be very happy with it. Spent 340 including tax, and hopefully i ll get some stuff for it later on, like a pump, cammelback, some tools and a small bag to use for keys/tools.

It took me 3 hrs to get it, Drove in crazy traffic for 1 hr there, and 1.5 hrs back, but i guess that will make me value bike more


here are 2 pics

I'm not sure, here in my LBS they only sold red and black and I seriously think my LBS is one of the best in the whole of Spain/France/Germany area, they don't sell P.1s here in Europe and they had 5 shipped. They were the only LBS with P.1s so go figure.
I'm pretty sure in the USA they sell black, silver, red and yellow, you just gotta look.

Eh, I got my P.1 in Europe, southern Holland to be precise, and I know several shops which sell them too. Don't know if they're imported though, but I guess not.

Hey I just bought a new Hardrock too. I drove 120 miles for mine. Sounds like we had the same thing in mind. Hope we enjoy

I just got the blue and black one. Paint looks sorta cool. Would have preferred the grey, but didn't want to wait for one in my size.
It rides really nice. Great forks for guy my size (6'1"-270lbs)

Ok now as I see it the colors also conforms to the model of the bike as well.

For instance isn't the flat black one means that its a hardrock ex instead of the sport? Hey ilyailya, does your model able you to upgrade to disc brakes in the future? Cause the regular sport enables you to upgrade to disc brakes but not EX version.
I'm asking cause according to the specialized site the sport models only come in yellow and silver and the flat black one is only the EX vesion.

Is this correct?
