My opinion.

My opinion on this bike is it is the best bike i have ever used. The bike is very good for trails. One time i was riding this bike on a really muddy trail, the mud and water was so high my feet were touching the water when they were on the pedals and the bike still rode very well. One thing i do not like about this bike is the gears do not go as high as a road bike. Meaning you have to pedal a lot faster to go the speed you desire to go. To fix that problem you only have to buy front gears, and the shifter for the gears.

Not great for rough trail riding

This bike does not have a tapered head tube or thru axle, which is not ideal for trail riding. The short travel fork works well for cross country and gravel riding but again, not ideal for trail riding. I do appreciate the internal routing availability for a dropper post. I would not recommend to someone who is serious about trail riding and wants upgradability. that being said the short travel and good drivetrain make it decent for beginners who want a bike for cross country or light trail use.

I like it

I bought my Rockhopper Comp 29 (yellow) circa Spring 2022. Haven't put as many miles on it as I had hoped but I am still trying. I love it and it rides perfect and looks great. Website lists it for $950. I bought from a local dealer (James Bros Bikes) in Auburn Alabama and I believe it was same price. I added a helmet from the shop so my total was more.

Great bike

Love the bike so far! Great ergonomics for my body, stops on a dime and the gear range is excellent. I got the red and like the other reviews (I read after) it’s definitely not red way more burnt orange. All in all I love it but I’d get black instead.

Nice smooth ride

Moving from a 27.5" Jamis Trail X A1, this is an upgrade. The 29" wheels make a difference for a nice smooth ride on gravel. Can't wait to get it on the trails. Like the 1x9 gearing. I don't change gears a ton and don't need the 3x8 that I used to roll with. I'm a tweener at 5'10" and test rode a large frame and a medium frame. The medium felt lighter to me, more nimble, so I went with the medium. Taking advantage of the sale price was a bonus! Happy with this bike. The battlecast color is stealth like and looks sick!

Daughter loves it

My wife owns the size small version of this bike and when it was time for my daughter to buy a new one, we knew exactly what to get her. She went with a size medium and absolutely loves it. The one item it was missing for her needs was a dropper post, which I was able to add on my own. Perfect bike for trail riding.

What a Ride!

Bought my first Rockhopper when I was almost 40. Best bike ever and I passed it onto my son years later. Now I'm almost 70 and decided to get back to riding again. The improvements made over the years are amazing. Great job to the design team! Time to start being a kid again. Oh yes, and this bike can stop. Hoooa!

New to the MTB game, OG bmx’r

Used to ride bmx for years when I was younger. Now I’m 42 and want to ride again. Got the rockhopper comp 29 a month ago. Love it. Bought my stepson a rockhopper 27.5 to get out there with me. Picked it up today in Delaware at Wooden Wheels and we are ready to hit the trails. Great quality. Light bike. I would definitely recommend Specialized.

Overpriced and not worthy

It's been 2months and we rode the bikes on the paved trails a couple of times. The first time the tire got punctured and I reached out to support they did help and gave replacement tubes which I totally appreciate. But I started seeing the poor pedal crank arm losing its threading within a week. The quality is way below the price. I would instead buy a 100$ bike in Walmart than endure this pain.

Great Bike

This is my first Specialized bike and It's great. The welds are perfect, the battleship grey color is awesome and the lettering is almost ghosted. It's lightweight for a hardtail and very quiet when riding. The only negatives I can give it are: the front shock isn't the best for an entry level. I wish it was the Rockshox Judy but hey, it's an entry level bike. The only other negative is the shifter. I'm not a fan of the trigger shifter for higher gears. I'd much rather it be a thumb push so I don't have to take my finger off of the brake lever. All-in-all it's a great bike!!!

Looove the bike, hate the color

The bike is great, and everything you'd expect from Specialized, and more. However the "Red" color option looks nothing like the photos. I was expecting a pretty saturated almost fire engine red based on the pictures and it's definitely not. You'd describe it as orange way before "red". It's a pretty dark 1970's shag carpet orange. I love the bike though and it would be too much of a hassle to return it just for the color issue. So for now I just call it "anti-theft orange". But hey, if you yearn for wood paneled basements, shag carpet, vinyl records, and gold polyester, this is the color for you!

I am new to mountain

I am new to mountain biking and my son said this was the best bike to start with. Brakes are nice and tight. Bike is easy to maneuver. I was looking at other brands and he insisted on Specialized (he started with a rockhopper and now rides a stumpjumper) Higher quality parts and impeccable customer service!! The satin cast battleship (steel blue) is even prettier in person. Call them if you have any questions or need help deciding on size. They will patiently help you.

Great starter bike

If you're like me, you're considering a rockhopper because you want to get on the trail and full-suspension bikes are *crazy* expensive. Maybe you don't have 2 or 3k, maybe you're not sure if you'll enjoy it enough to invest that much, or maybe you know very little about bikes. So, go ahead and pull the trigger on a rockhopper. Life is short, and sometimes ya just gotta send it. It's really a cross country bike, but if you want to get it on some more rugged terrain, a few upgrades will go a long way. Here's what I changed: Pedals (raceface chester) Dropper seatpost (brand x ascend) Front fork (rockshox judy silver) You can certainly have a lot of fun with this while leaving all the stock parts on. As your skill levels change, its components will eventually hold you back. With the above upgrades, the rockhopper is closer to a $1500 bike. Worth it. Happy riding!

All I need

This is an excellent value bike. You can definitely save some hard-earned money by going with this option there are a few models a little bit more money that offer a slightly enhanced shock but I don't think the majority of riders will notice any difference. This bike can be use on or off the trail basic pave dirt and a little rough stuff. It has more than enough gears for all riding conditions and Hills. Very similar bike to the Fire Mountain Kona all of this one has a better shock and hydraulic disc brakes so again a very good value bicycle low maintenance is expected

I love this bike. But

I love this bike. But there were some quality control issues. The welds for the seat stays inside the seat tube were never ground down so they left zig zag gouges on most of the seatpost .There was something that looked like chunks of carbon fiber five in total each about the size of a pebble or a tiktak in the down tube and it would rattle and sounded like a rain stick when I carried my bike upstairs. Took the guys at the bike shop an hour to get them out they had to take off the fork and shake them out bit by bit. Aside from these issues I do love the bike..
