    No photos of RH Disc comp Candy Red Swoosh?

    I have scoured for pix of this bike and have not found any on the web, even in the Specialized photo thread.

    Anyone have a Rockhopper disc comp that is candy red? I briefly saw one in the bike shop, but it did not look exactly like the photo on the website- not black stripe and more "metallic", with yellow letters. Anyone have pix or can confirm this?

    Thanks.

    By the way, to all you turds who didn't answer my question, I finally saw a red comp disc frame in the LBS (still in the box). And Yes the photo in the catalog and website are wrong.

    Just because we don't care about the color of a Rockhoopper doesn't mean we're turds....

    I never apologize. I'm sorry, but that's just the way I am.

    How do you like it? I had one on order, I love the Mango orange color, and it was supposed to be a great bike at the price point, but it was on back order, and I didn't think I was going to find one... how much does it weigh? I got a FSR Pro instead at 80 bucks cheaper.

    3ft-

    I just brought it home today. After testing it out I absolutely love it!

    It weighs about 26# (as measured in the store) 17" stock with reflectors, etc. and feels very light while riding. LX feels great, hydraulics awesome.

    Thought about buying full suspension instead, but for me, this is all I need/want. Mango is not a good name for it, burnt orange (?) is better.

    Will give more feedback after heavy duty rides, though.

    Yea, well Specialized calles it Mango, so go figure...

    I still wish I could have found one, but the 19"s were sold out everywhere till August.
