Pros: Overall a good solid bike

Cons: Pedals are so cheap! Broke both in 3 weeks. Shocks could be upgraded. Not really good for anything but potholes

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: great price, great for entry level riding and just getting used to the trails.

Cons: 29" wheels took some getting used to on sharp turns, but that was a given with the purchase.
not a lot of travel on the fork.

Recommendation: I would recommend it to anyone getting into MTBing, it is very well made and you can't get a better entry level bike for the price!

Model/Year: Specialized Hardrock 29/ 2013

Pros: Great price and quality. Does well on the trail and on the street. Good starter bike for moderate trail riding.

Cons: Saddle is uncomfortable. Back tires always go out of air quickly with larger persons riding. But that happens with most bikes.

Recommendation: Recommended.

Model/Year: 2012

Pros: Sturdy bike that I beat the mess out of and it just keeps on rolling.

I like the seat, the wheels, the gear/brake setups and the looks.

Good components and easy to ride.

Cons: It's entry-level, yes.
Remember when i said it takes a beating? Well, it does, but its starting to rattle a bit and make noise.
Front brakes are noisy.

Recommendation: For a beginner, I highly recommend this bike. Though I quickly wished I had a full suspension bike I can't afford one. This bike does well. I bought mine 1 year old from a bike shop at a good price.
