Specialised Hardrock pro disc vs. Devinci Hucker 3
Hey everyone. So Im trying to talk my friend outta buying a specalized hardrck pro disc because I think he can get something elce better for the money. And about the devinci hucker 3. i bought it early summer and hasnt givven me a problem. But the guy who wants a goody goody specalized thinks its a piece of crap, and hates it because its not a specialized. Please tell me hees wrong lol. So anyways im trying to prove to him that a specialized is not the way to go for a realitively cheap(not $5000) bike. Any sugestions for other good bikes around the same price range as the hardrock pro disc would be appreciated(it has nto look good). Secondly tell him my bike isnt a piece of crap.
Thanks to everyone who replies!
It just doesn't matter
Whatever your friend thinks, just doesn't matter. If he's stuck on Specialized, that's his problem not yours. FWIW, if your friend is reading this, there are far too many bike manufacturers out there that make good bikes to say who is best. The best bike is the bike you buy that suits your needs and fits your budget. Go do your research and find the right bike.

I post too much.
Specialized makes a good product, but they cut corners, have crappy business ethics(they are sue happy and made many good companies go broke) and are just money hungry people.
Devinci's on the other hand are hand built here, 2 hours from where I live, and are very reputable. They are a bit more expensive due to the fact that they are not made in taiwan.(specialized is).
I wouldn't buy specialized, not because of their product, but because of the company itself.
In the end, it's your friends money and he can do whatever he wishes with it, have him go with the bike he's the most happy pedaling, no matter the brand.
PS: The hucker and hardrock aren't in the same category of bikes at all, the first being a light freeride/all mountain bike, while the second is much more of a cross-country bike. If your friend has any intentions of doing drops, jumps and rough downhills, I'd advise against the hardrock.
