    Couple pics of my new bike :)

    Researched this site for a few weeks and tried out a few bikes. I wanted a good quality, fun to ride hardtail...it was ended up being between the Cannondale SL3 and the Specialized Rockhopper....and the winner was....





    2012 Specialized Rockhopper

    Took it out for a 20km ride this weekend over a paved trail and some single track. Nothing to crazy but enough to break in the bike and get a good feel for it. Feelsgoodman!

    A friend of mine bought a Rockhopper a few days ago. It was a lower end model with the Avid BB5s, but I was still impressed at the value.

    It was a decent bike.

    i like the black and white color scheme, thinking the RH might be a better choice than the SL3,

    Nice bike. Now go and beat the sh*t out of it.

    One more thing, lose the reflectors. They'll end up snapping off anyway.

    Yeah I like the colors too! Good looking bike.

    What fork is on there? Is it a Specialized branded fork? Suntour?

    Nice ride man!

    Already commented on your other thread.

    OP - why nothing crazy? If I got a new bike, I'd be on my way to the top of the riding spot with the most vert. within 45 minutes' drive...
