    Specialized hardrock disc 29er or sport disc 29er

    This will be my first MB.Would the reg disc 29er suffice or should I spend the extra 175 and get the sport? Most of my riding will be on roads or very established smoother trails so im not sure if I really need the hyd disc brakes..

    Smoother trails like graded and chipsealed? Or hardpack with some roots and stuff still present?

    I don't think the Sport is $100 better than the plain one. The upgrade doesn't get you into parts that you'd keep on purpose. If you want better brakes, buy the plain Hardrock and use the money you saved to put BB7s on it.

    If you're not interested in actual mountain biking, hop on some road bikes too before you commit.

    I have a 4 year old version of this bike, set up as a singlespeed.

    In my opinion, the Tektro hydraulic brakes are one of the best things about the bike. They work well, and require very little maintenance. I say spring for the hydros, you won't be sorry.
