    checking out a hardrock

    I think i will go look at a Used 2009 hardrock disc tomorrow i found online. It will be my first Real MTB

    I Found out i live really pretty close to some trails mainly single track by my house just want to know how good of an idea a Hardrock is for my first bike?


    Never ridden them before and want to see if i like it. ( I love biking ever since i was 4 but just on bmx bikes)

    If i find i like the sport will i find myself trying to sell this bike in a year and trying to upgrade?

    Just wondering if i bring it home what should i expect?


    Whats a fair price for a used 2009 hardrock disc in prime condition.? (dont wanna get burned)

    I just bought a 2010 Sport Disc and it's a really nice bike. And while i don't think I will HAVE to upgrade to a better bike in a year I will WANT to upgrade some things on the bike. So far the only thing i want to upgrade is the fork, it sucks. It doesn't suck so bad that it takes away from the fun i have on the bike though.

    So if you like the bike and it's a good price, get it.

    can't go wrong with a HardRock. I had a 05 Hardrock Sport. Anything Specialized has my vote. Just my 2 cents.

    I started with an 09 Hardrock and really liked it. I bought it to cruise my daughter around the neighborhood. Then I found out some guys I work with ride trails. I tagged along one time and was hooked. After awhile I was able to keep up on the climbs and smoother terrain but when things got rocky they would just walk away and leave me. Also after a long rocky ride, I would come home feeling beat-up. I ended up buying a Stumpjumper FSR and sold the HR for $275. It's a great bike but if you already like to ride trails I would go full suspension right away.
