Specialised Hardrock Sport (06)
Now I know what your thinking.. Low end bike, not as good as a rockhopper etc but you know what?
This is by far the BEST bike I have ever owned, and ridden for that matter.
The original forks were ok for what they were, but with a set of Tora's on there the bike keeps up with the big boys.
The original crankset lasted about 18 months, during which it was being used for at least 10 miles a day.

So now the bike is quite a few years old, the crankset has been replaced once, couple of new mechs though, the original wheels are still present (the front was untill last year when a car decided to run me down). Skewers were fine, although they were changed last year simply because I felt like it and the original brakes were perfect.

So as an entry level bike.. There is nothing wrong with it... So many people dont like it, but I'd like to know how many of those people have actually owned or ridden one...
My riding is more up and down than the damn area I live in! And the tart's knickers who lives next door - Combined!  :o
Do you prefer this to the I-drive?  I realise they're different, but if i could only keep one of my bikes it'd be the full susser, much as i love the XTC
In terms of fun off road - The I-Drive wins hands down, simply because of the comfort factor and allowing me to go faster.
But then again when I do any sort of urban route - The spesh would win that hands down (slimmer, smallers, more agile)

Took the spesh around BBH yesterday and by god it was hard work, so if I didn't have to use it for work and college then yeah I would probably keep the I-Drive, but as off roading is purely a bonus as and when, it's the Hardrock that I would keep, should I REALLY have too.
