This month’s customer review was written by Michael Whitelegge on the Specialized Hardrock Sport Disc 2011, and as usual, he is entitled to the £250 voucher.
Bought this after completing an introductory course on mountain biking riding a Hardrock hire bike. The frame geometry really suits me. I had to choose between the Sport Disc and the Pro, and finally decided that I would go for the Sport Disc and maybe look to an upgrade for hyraulic brakes at a later date. I went for the black/white model, as the orangey balck one was a bit too lairy for me as a beginner – trying to avoid the ‘all the gear, no idea’ tag! I’ve been on about half a dozen rides now, and covered about 40 miles in total – a mixture of road/path and forest singletrack. I really like the bike and have been very impressed with the build quality and value for money. I’d choose this one again with a doubt. The pedals are a bit plasticky, but it’s fairly cheap to add some SPD ones, wich I did, coupled with some extremely comfortable Specialized BG Tahoe shoes.
