    The Hardrock Pro is a good bike except for the Made in Taiwan Marzocchi. Don't know anything about your other choice.

    It's for some kind of light-freeride

    And no, the nick isn't in reference to the band Tragedy, but to Tragedy Khadafi.

    The Hardrock Pro disk is better. I have one and I love it. Its components are a lot better than that on the Scott Voltage YZ 0.

    Scotts components are a lot worse. Hardrock has Deore and scott has alivio shifters. Think again.

    Go for the Scott. That Dirtjam pwns the MZ Comp. I'd live with Alivio components... just go to parktool.com and learn to tune your own stuff. It used to seem really hard but I can do it so easy now, it's no way worth the labor cost for having a deraileur tuneup...


    Now having a wheel laced... yeah.

    Frame construction and fork is MUCH better. Alivio or Deore shifters, big deal, they're both low end. And all Shimano shifters/derailleurs use the same mechanisms, just different materials. Bars, stem, cranks, wheels are also better. Pro disc has slightly nicer brakes.

    Hardrock is an entry-level recreational bike. The Voltage was designed with some sort of abuse in mind.

    So why don't you think again?

    As of now, I'm still working at a Specialized dealer too.

    If it's actuaaly the Pro Disc that you're looking at, then the specs are way better. I currently have a Pro disc. It has SRAM X-7 shifters/deraileurs and Avid mechanical disc brakes. I love mine, it can do anything i want. Only bad part is the fork, as stated above.

    Yeah the X.7 IS nice. You could buy the Pro Disc and do a tradeup with Marzocchi for $100 for a DJ3. Tis what I did.


    Just don't do hops on the back wheel with the rear brake. I snapped the frame that way.

    It's an entry level recreational bike. Enough said.

    Lacing wheels is all about patience, and even spoke tension. Get a tensiometer.

    And spoke prep. Can't forget that.



    Go for the Scott though.




    But my Hardrock survived a ton of 5ft to flat concrete so who knows.

    Spoke prep isn't that important. High quality nipples are a must so they don't crack or freeze. Spoke prep can help keep them from seizing.

    Tension is everything.

    Get the Scott. Slowly take over Timo's life.

    Yes, the Konas are very solid frames. The drivetrain on the Kona isn't as good as the Scott. But you get some better parts too. It's a great platform to upgrade. Ride both the Scott and the Kona, see which you like better.

    the Scott hands down, in my opinion every good bike should start with the best frame possible, and that'd be the Scott, very well built, burly and 4.1 pounds if not mistaken even if it did have *slightly* worse build, the frame is the key component to every bike and will be the main deciding factor in how your bike will ride / survive.
