    rockhopper all mountain?

    Has anyone tried one of the new rockhopper all mountain hardtails? How is it? I can get wholesale on specialized so I am considering getting one. Does anyone know of any other all mountain hardtails that I can get for $800 or under? Thanks.

    The wife and I picked up 2 of them today at about $400 per bike and I think it is a great bike, they are 2005 models, but they ride very nice and I am now looking for an excuse to ride.

    Well first of all it is a base model Rock Hopper, and it is an 05, but it is a step up from the Hard Rock I was looking at, dispite the lack of disk brakes.

    Doing same, getting base rockhopper instead of a hardrock sport I think its quite an upgrade both in frame and components. But I have to pay full retial for a 06'

    Wow, that must be the deal of the century, you saved $550, 50% off retail. Mind me asking how you managed that?? I knew 06 rh were on closeout but thats crazy.

    wow, NICE. I'm hoping I can find a deal like that when I get back to the states a month from now. The all mountain looks great, though I'd rather have the rock shox recon fork over the marz one. have you taken the bike out on the trails yet? hows it riding? i'm looking to buy an agressive xc/trailbike and it looks like the pro disc or pro disc AM might be just the ticket.

    Just a got a base 06 Rockhopper today. Other than saddle, what are the weak points on this bike I should consider upgrading in the future.

    Hi
    I was wondering if you could tell me where I could get a Specialized Rock Hopper Pro Disc 2008 for whole sale like you mentioned. Let me know I'm on a fixed income and need the help. Thank you.
