2020 Specialized ROCKHOPPER EXPERT 1X 29

Specialized rockhopper

Cons: A little heavy, stock fork leaves a lot to be desired. The trail can be a pretty intimidating place at first. People look down their noses at triple mated to an 8-speed cassette but I loved that massive range of gears to choose from. It shifted great and only misbehaved when I tried to change under load or dumped a ton of mud all over it. The holiday is over, the romance is gone. I contacted my Specialized selling mate and asked what 700 clams would get me in a hardtail 29er, and this entry level Rockhopper was it.

. You couldn't pick it out of a lineup of one. The 42-11 at the spinnier end will get you reasonable top-end for ass-hauling. Hydro will cost you more greenbacks than I was willing to spend. The Rockhopper made me feel like a kid on a bike again.

I'll always remember the good times I had on the intrepid Rockhopper. First thing to go get replaced. It handles small-to-medium and spaced-out bumps pretty well. They doggedly clung to it all. The paint job is pretty nice though, a lovely bright candy red.

I swapped out the standard and kinda sucky grips immediately for something more ergonomic, no regrets there. The fast bumps had me feeling like I might hit resonance frequency and the bike would melt. This Rockhopper comes with a build spec that places an emphasis on reliability. But hey, 700 bones doesn't buy you plushness. Recommendation: I would recommend this bike. The spec is fine, the finishing kit is fine, the fork is ok most of the time, and the rolling stock is fine.

Recommendation: Love this bike and would definitely recommend it. Click for full program details. Good grips, derailers, and bars. Some of them are tools for adventure. Either that or my teeth and eyeballs would rattle out.

I want to give a shout-out to the Body Geometry saddle. With clean lines and internal cable routing, turns out it looks as sweet as it rides. The Ground Control tyres had solid grip almost everywhere. I quite liked the Shimano cable stoppers mated to big 180mm disc on the front and 160mm disc on the rear. It's been a timely reminder for me that bikes don't all have to be lustworthy wall-poster material. I smashed them through bike-destroying clay mud, rocks, loose gravel, sand, and thick grass. No expensive components, although a drawback, means you can use and abuse this bike while you learn and not feel guilty about scratching it.

What more could I ask for that amount of bread? This does not mean being the biggest. The lower-height center tread of the Fast Trak rear is ideal for efficient power transfer, with a durable, cut-resistant casing to fend off flats. So whether you prefer endless flowing singletrack, or bombing downhill kamikaze style, you are sure to find the perfect ride. My entry bike into mountain biking. Rides well and not overly heavy.
