Model/Year: 2016

Pros: Durable comfortable Relatively solid components Affordable

Cons: Heavy Basic

Recommendation: This bike is an awesome beginner bike. No expensive components, although a drawback, means you can use and abuse this bike while you learn and not feel guilty about scratching it. The frame is durable and plenty snappy to make any trail enjoyable. This bike wont do you as many favors as a $5000 bike, but it definitely wont hold you back.

Pros: Priced well. I got mine for $600 from Bikes and Moore in Hopkinsville, KY. Rides well and not overly heavy. Good grips, derailers, and bars.

Cons: The SR shock is garage. I had to adjust it to the max and it still bottomed out on me and I'm only 195 lbs. First thing to go get replaced.

Recommendation: Good bike if your not into bumpy trails or pump tracks.

Pros: Price. My entry bike into mountain biking. Serves as a nice XC/Trail hardtail or a bike to ride gently while with your family.

Cons: Horrible stock SR Suntour XCR fork, Should be updated quickly. Head tube angle of 71 degrees is too steep for any serious fun.

Recommendation: I would recommend this bike. But be aware, once you get it, you will want to make several quick upgrades to make it a smoother ride.

Pros: The price is a definite plus on this bike. You get quite a bit of bike for our buck. High quality with a more reasonable price.

Cons: Would love a bit more adjustable suspension on the fork.

Recommendation: Fun bike, love its ride-ability and multifunctional capabilities to take on the trail or a paved path.

Model/Year: 2009 Rockhopper SL SS

Pros: Great cross country geo, light, eccentric pinch bolt BB

Cons: RS Recon is a bit heavy

Recommendation: I converted mine to rigid with a PRO carbon fork. It was a good bike

Pros: Price

Cons: Component group is junk

Recommendation: The fork is not as responsive as a rigid carbon. Once there is a load on it it pretty much just stays there. If you are riding smooth packed flat trails then this is the bike for you. For a little higher price point just buy something in the Fuse line.
