report on my new bike

picked up an '07 specialized rockhopper last week. only flaw i notice is the saddle is uncomfortable and disc brakes squeak when wet, im guessing they just have to be worn in. great all-around beginner bike. here are some pics

Saddles are a personal thing. Sometimes you get lucky and they fit you well, sometimes not so much. I would suggest riding with the current one for a while longer to see if your body adjusts. Sometimes it is less the saddle and more the change of riding on a rough trail.

As far as the disc brakes, mine squeak when wet as well. Just seems to be the case when they are wet.
