Pros: All-mountain; DJ and XC
Cons: Saddle; replace quickly
When you get a hybrid like this you sacrifice climbing.
Not the lightest but not too heavey
Recommendation: For $650 brand new with lifetime warranty on the frame this can't be beat! Specialized managed to get good components and keep it on a tight budget. This is a great entry-level bike especially if you're not sure what your style is. It can handle the abuse. Great for jumping and trails but climbing takes some effort.
