    Rockhopper Comp Disc Vs the Haro V4

    Pk talked with the shop owner today. The only thing he has in my size of a 15in frame is Rockhopper Comp Disc, and a Hardrock sport. I can get a real good deal on the Rockhopper Comp Disc. Dose anyone have any exp with this model. I know it is different from what i've been talking about on here. Rockhopper Comp Disc Vs the Haro V4 which would be better?

    Get the Rockhopper!

    Very nicely spec'd bike. Good fork, very good disc brakes, very good drivetrain components. If the shop owner can cut you a deal on this bike that you can afford, buy it and don't look back. There is basically nothing on this bike that you'll be looking to upgrade any time soon.

    The rockhopper the guy has it in a 15in, thats the size I need. He only has aHaro V4 in a 16in. I may call another shop in the mourning to see if they have any 14 in the V4 since thats what size haro makes. Which one of these bikes would yall get? I need to know soon. Looking at the specs of each they ware very close exept brakes and shocks. Help me out guys

    I bought a haro v-series frame and love it. The geomotry of the frame is very aggressive. The Part spec on the rockhopper seems slightly better but I really dont like the rockhopper frame (I replaced it with the haro.) It comes down to the price. If you can get a v4 close to the rockhopper, i'd go for it.

    Both good bikes

    You really can't go wrong with either. I like the fork better on the Rockhopper, and it definitely has better disc brakes. The frame on the Rockhopper is pretty sturdy, too. I don't have much knowledge of Haro other than their reputation with BMX bikes, which is excellent. Test ride both bike and buy the one YOU like!!!
