A picture (along with the right spelling) would helps us all to understand it's a bicycle you're on about.

Have been looking to get one of these, bad timing on the cash front though :(
Best price i have seen, shame about the codes.
Thanks.

Fantastic price. I have a Hardrock Sport - only thing i dislike is that there is no lock out on the forks.

I have the rockhopper disc, would recommend the brand

As a local to Primera, you would go there if you want a road bike, but for a mtb you want to go to either http://www.bikelab.co.uk or ride cycleworks

Also, disk? I thought they were disc brakes? also people, they are cable discs, not hydraulic, so not much of a difference over V brakes...

This is a great little budget bike worth considering but I do know that it's available elsewhere online for just £269.99 including shipping as I got it last week (in Black) for my brother.

Also, cable disc brakes are usually superior by a huge factor over v, especially brakes such as Avid Bb-5 which are fitted to my Claud Butler Alpina (2008) which incidentally was recently reduced from £540.00 to £270.00 (alas they're no longer in stock anywhere - brilliant bike). Hydraulics such as QMD Q 5's although hydraulics do offer better stopping ability but suffer from the persistent need to replace the pads as often as once every three or four good downhill sessions (I regularly ride the Afan trails).

Where? Please post the link.
#16
That is a good price - I have the 2007 version(I think) good quality bike.
#17
@ namjack, I suspect you are using your brakes too mich if you need to replace pads every 3-4 rides, I've a mate who just spent 2 weeks riding in Morzine, and used the pads he's had on his bike for a while!
banned#18
Apologies by the way. The Specialized Hardrock I got was the 2009. Sorry.
#19
Make sure you budget for a good lock as according to Endsleigh the Specialized Hardrock is the most stolen bike.
#20
Its a good price and a great bulletproof bike, I've got a Hardrock sport disc 2007 and I've loved it. Bit on the heavy side but would recommend for anyone getting into mountain biking

I'm guessing this is a off-road bike? not a hybrid?
can't tell from the tyres - they look off-road to me

Yep, its a MTB. As I said in my prevous post, you cant lock the forks out, therefore I wouldn't recommend this for much on-road use.

Is it just me or is there website really slow

I fitted BB5s on my Bike, much prefer them to both V Brakes or for that matter Hydraulic, Mechanical Disk Brakes, are such less hassle, very easy maintenance and great stopping power.

As for this deal, not a bad price at all breaks that "£300 Starter Mountain Bike" bracket, Specialized have decent frames ideal for upgrading as and when your budget affords, sensible choice for beginners looking for a true Mountain Bike rather than catalogue bike fodder churned out by Halfords, Argos and the like.

I have this, I paid £600 back in 2006, bargain, hoooooooot.

http://www.bestbikeproducts.com/products.php?plid=m1b25s2p2004&rs=gb - Specialised Hardrock.Fatreg. I ride usually 4-6 hours a day 2-3 times a week downhilling plus I also use the bike midweek to build up stamina on slightly inclined trails (distance rather than incline). For the downhill sections I use, the amount of braking required is rather high. I currently use Avid BB5 instead of the Quaqds in order to avoid having to replace them so often. the performance difference to be honest is not significant enough to warrant the cost.If you're thinking of getting the Specialized hardrock, I'd highly recommend this instead: not as pretty but a far better hardtail for rough trails:http://www.bikes2udirect.com/B2483.htmlThis is my beauty and I thought it was no longer available. IU've ordered two biuked from Bikes2U (the alpina below and the Claud Butler Switchblade for my daughter). My other brother also bought the silver Claud Butler Stone River D2 which is ugly but exceptional for the price point.http://www.bikes2udirect.com/B2439.htmlFor the budget price I paid, I love my bike.

...Anybody would think the bike you own is worth a grand+....

Are you sure it's all that?
#28
ive got a 1993 rockhopper rigid and it still better than most of the modern bikes and looks far nicer imo, nothing to do with this deal tho - voted hot
#29
I've got a Hardrock Comp 2009 - I really love it! Great bike, it's only around 13kg!
HOT!
#30
mechanical discs should not be better than hydraulic (except e.g. for touring where repairs are a big issue). brake usage/pad material/weather is more important for wear.
forks on these price bikes never work well unfortunately. at risk of sounding a bike snob, decent forks do cost this much alone. so not sure what i'd recommend at this price.. probably saving for more if it's for off road, or buying a rigid hybrid if its for on road.

if OP is buying bike for his daughter, is she going to go trail riding/downhilling ? serious Q, if not probably there are better options.

The Carrara Kraken is the best spec'd bike for £400 and you can get a 20% discount at the moment so £343.99

Not so worried about spec looking for comfortable seat as mainly for going to and from work and as light weight as possible

You don't need a mountain bike then....you want a commuter bike or a hybrid
#35
Good deal but get a bike suitable to your needs. If you do 98% road riding and 2% trail riding then go with a hybrid as you probably arent doing anything silly enough to need a 2.3" tire, disc brakes and suspension and mountain bikes are pigs to ride on tarmac. The 2005 hardrock sport disc was my the bike I got to get back into riding. Did a few seasons on it then picked up a specialized p. all mountain which is a great progressive hardtail. I now ride a norco shore 2 bouncy bike.

Anyone looking to get into the sport will do pretty well out of this bike. You'll get a season out of it and you'll either be happy with what you've got or you'll want to take it further and get something better. Either way its a great entry level bike and has held that accolade for as long as I care to remember.
#36
can anyone recommend a decent hybrid/ commuter bike for around the £400 mark? comments and suggestions will be appreciated.
#37
I'm also looking for a decent hybrid bike of around £350 price range. Tempted with this Halfords Carrera Kraken tho i'm presuming this is a full on MTB? Quite a noob when it comes to bikes really and doing a bit of reading to catch up as its about 18yrs since I last properly road a bike when I was a kid.

I initially plan to ride near the old railway tracks (which is just a fairly flat but slightly bumpy long path/field......but then to get exercise I plan to hopefully ride the bike all over the place......more of a reason for fat burning than anything else

As I said, It's RRP was around the £540 mark and I gave £270. Bike radar loved the thing and more importantly I think it's the best budget bike I could have got for the cash. See Bike radar's Stone River D2 review which is an almost identical bike to the Alpina except for braking and the Alpina has superior forks.

As for those asking for the links, they were posted yesterday where I also advised that the hardrock I got was actually the 2009 not 2010. In addition the Alpina white is no longer available.

Specialized Hybrid 399 at Evans great bike
