    Rockhopper LTD 29er

    In my never ending search to spend money I spied a 2011 Rockhopper LTD 29er. Specialized has discontinued this model. Did the 2012 Rockhopper Comp replace it or the Carve series. I seems like a nice bike. Retail was close to $1,800 I've seen them closer to the $1,000 - $1,200 mark.
    1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1992 Stumpjumpers. 1995 Waterford 1200, 1999 Waterford RSE, plus a garage full of steel frames.

    I would go for it. Giant changed the game with their XTC 29er's,they come standard with 15mm thru axle forks and tapered headtubes. The XTC 29er2 starts at $1400 but I'm sure you could find a 2011 bike for $1000-$1200.

    It would that the Carve Pro has replaced the Rockhopper LTD 29, very similar specs

    I was thinking that's what happened. The Rockhopper does look nice though. I'm thinking it might be between the Carve or the LTD. My LBS has a warehouse full of bikes but seems reluctant to do any meaningful discounting.
