“The Specialised Hardrock XC are very well designed bikes.”

Written on: 29/05/2014 by Meadow269 (1 review written)

These bikes are 'Engineered'. The people who designed these bikes know what there doing. Everything on the bike is engineered from the light weight frame, to the wheels and tyres, to the shocks to the gearing and seating. There very light and comfortable to ride. They are built for speed. Very enjoyable to ride. I have other bikes, but the Specialized Hardrock is by far the best out of them all. They don't look that much different from the other bikes, but the difference comes when you ride… Read Full Review

“best mtb for the money”

Written on: 27/12/2013 by jayshrsport29er (1 review written)

This bike is built like a tank, tough as nails, and surprisingly light after some key upgrades. I have the 2012 sport disc 29er and I love it. It's such a great ride and I wouldn't sell it for anything. The first few upgrades I made were to the seat, pedals, grips and fork. The stock forks are junk! I replaced it with a rockshox XC 32 TK with 100mm. of travel and solo air, wow what a difference! Other upgrades include hope tech evo X2's with hope lightweight floating rotors, Thomson elite seat… Read Full Review

“It's SpecialZ!”

Written on: 15/11/2013 by ChrisBradley (3 reviews written)

Having owned a Specialized bike for over 10 years now I was not surprised in the slightest that this was a top notch bike. However, up until now I've only ever had their road bikes, but after watching the mountain biking at the Olympics I caught the bug! As with most bikes it took a little while to get the set up just right, but then you wouldn't drive a car without adjusting the seat and mirror, and bikes are just the same! For anyone considering it, the ride is smooth and build quality… Read Full Review

“Great Value”

Written on: 31/05/2013 by John-Mark-Philips (2 reviews written)

I've always been a big fan of Specialized - they're clearly a company who know what they're doing... after all they have bikes in the Tour de France (not this one!), so they should have a great idea of what they're doing. I've had a ton of fun with this mountain bike - I had a few issues with the gears initially, but I soon fixed them, it was just a matter of getting the tuning right, and it's dead simple if you ask nicely in a bike shop to get it sorted. Smooth ride. Recommended!… Read Full Review

“best bike ever!!”

Written on: 05/04/2013

holds up to anything I throw at it. I've proably biked thousands of miles on that thing. The paint hardly ever scratches and it's all around a great bike. The gear changes are a little bit shaky esspecially 2-1 on the right side, and the tires suck for what I put it through too soft of a compound. But don't let me disscorage you from buying this bike, It's great… Read Full Review

“Great bike”

Written on: 25/03/2013

I changed my mongoose 250 for a hardrock and it was one of my best moves ever! it's like giving away a kia for a mercedes. It's fun, easy, durable, everything u want for leisure and commuting. It feels like a part of your body. From the very first moment u feel comfortable and sure to do what u want. Definitely recommend it… Read Full Review

“starter mountain bike”

Written on: 01/05/2012 by tgoutdoors (1 review written)

bought the 2011 hardrock sport disc,(hot uk deals £370.00) and its a massive improvement on anything else ive ever ridden, but it didnt take long before i wanted to upgrade things on it. the forks are pretty naff, i ride xc mainly and drop offs larger that 5 inches and rocky sections are pretty scary with only 80mm of travel to hide behind,yes the tyres are great on roads but not on muddy rocky trails. to be fair this bike is marketed as a commuter/trail bike and on the road its ok, although… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/04/2011

Great starter bike. I have had for 2 years. Crank and chainrings could be better as they bend with powerful climbing. Frontfork is great. Sun tour. Cassette and chain both changed within 6 months. Front and rear deraillers are good for street ridinig, but not appropriate for Mountain biking.

Great for the price. Could upgrade, but will sell and get a better lighter frame after 3 years of riding. Happy overall… Read Full Review

“Has something happened to Specialized's wheel makers?...”

Written on: 14/07/2009

Has something happened to Specialized's wheel makers? I used to have a 2000 Hardrock and used it for commuting around London for 7 years. The wheels just kept on turning - till the rims wore out simply from braking. That was OK - I'd got more than 10,000 miles out of them. My son also has an older Hardrock and hammers it round a mountain bike course every weekend, again without any problems.

Recently I got a new Hardrock - the 09 pro disk model with Alex Rims. Within four months the rear… Read Full Review
