    My 2012 Hardrock Disc just received a 9 speed upgrade:

    SRAM X9 Front Derailleur
    SRAM X9 Rear Derailleur
    SRAM X9 Trigger Shifters
    SRAM PG-970 Cassette
    SRAM PC-971 Chain
    Shimano Deore M590 Crankset - 22-32-44 w/External BB
    Pure XM Wheelset - Black w/Black Spokes & Red Alloy Nipples

    I did all the work myself over the weekend. Now I need to get out and ride it like I stole it!!!

    Both 2010's, and both were stock. Upgrades are mostly aesthetic for my first round, open to suggestions!





    For the Stumpy, I am planning a 2X9 w/bashguard and chainguide conversion with an X-9 med r. der. and X-9 shifters, I hear they're leaps and bounds better than the X-7's. That way, I'll be able to switch over the X-9 der - X-7 shifter setup to the Rockhopper. Do you guys this I should do that or invest in a new wheelset first?

    Rockhopper is super fun as is and is a fantastic bike to transfer parts from the Stumpy as I upgrade so I'm not terribly worried about what will happen to that thing. And some part of me loves the V brakes... dunno why.

    Rockhopper question year, date? How to raise handlebars

    Im having a hard time trying to figure out this forum thing, so this is the only way I can post a question. I just purchased a Specialized Rockhopper, I would like to find out some information about it. I need to know how to determine how old it is and also how to raise the handlebars up a little higher. The bars are to low for me so when I ride more than 10 minutes I begain to louse circulation in my hands and they go numb. Any advice would be great or may be I could be told how to start my own thread or what ever.

    Thanks!

    ^ I work out my abs so I can maintain the erection of the the upper body weight using abs and not placing it on the wrists. That and you can also get a riser handlebar.

    Hay thanks for the info, Ill try working on my abs some but for me it seems that my back muscles are what I use more than any thing to remove the waight off my hands. I have found a few risers at Walmrts on line catalog however they are not very spacific to which one may fit my bike.

    ^ I would't buy one at wal-mart...they are very inexpensive at sites like chainreactioncysles.com...I think your size is 31.8 mm, just pick which width you want.

    If you work on your abs, you will notice that it will relief your back muscles, as well as your wrists.

    Browse this forum more, especially Rockhopper upgrades page, and see what people are getting and what it looks like. I have learned a ton of new info, as my RH is my first "real" bike . Stay away from wal-mart tho as far as buying parts...unless it's something like lube or tubes or ammo lol.

    Cheap adjustable risers won't hold up to the impacts of mountain biking. I would recommend a product such as a Ritchey adjustable riser so you can experiment with height. Maybe order it though your LBS to make sure you get the right steerer tube and handle bar diameters. Also play around with seat hight and front/rear position for better hand comfort.

    Google bike set-up for more info on fitting you to your bike. Also search these forums.

    Google Specialized Rockhopper and click Images. You might be able to match yours with one of the pics and go from there.

    Replaced the rear derailleur and chain when the other one exploded two miles into my first ride on the bike. Boo minus.
    Did the switch in the Performance parking lot. Still had time to get in another 10 miles before I had to be back home.

    No picture with your post so I figured you were directing the comment at me. Don't worry I am more than relaxed.
