We deliver! Just say when and how.

All barn-burner and no benchwarmer, the Rockhopper Sport throws out the playbook when it comes to putting performance points on the board while playing some serious defense on behalf of your wallet.

Game-ready with Shimano MT200 hydraulic disc brakes, MicroSHIFT shifting and an SR SunTour XCM fork that’s built to hustle, the Rockhopper Sport can tack up the win on any given Sunday—and the rest of the week too for that matter.

Didn’t expect to have to adjust the derailleur as soon as I got home

The specialized customer service representative gave me the impression that I could ride my bicycle immediately after picking it up from the Authorized Speciialized dealer is Basalt, but to my dismay I went to ride my new bike and the derailleurs need to be adjusted the gears were slipping , slapping and was far to dangerous to ride… W was told that the authorized dealer would prepare my bicycle for riding, I did purchase bottle holders for the bike at the shop and also asked about the price of maintenance knowing full well that after the break in period I would need to go back and have things adjusted maybe it was because I did NOT purchase a 5000$ bike … bike good.. service at authorized specialized dealer… NOT SO GOOD

Not typical orange

This is a nice bike for the cost, but the Blaze color is not like the website photos. In natural sunlight, it is distinctly a pink-orange, like shrimp. In artificial light it looks more like a tangerine, like the photos. If you don’t like shrimp-like orange, don’t get the Blaze. Specialized should use more representative photos on the website.

Best bike I've owned. All

Best bike I've owned. All the components are high end, even for an entry level bike. Can be upgraded, but you can still have a great ride straight out the box. Highly recommend the 27.5". Incredibly responsive, light, and handles like a dream.

Good components especially for the sale price and great ride. I have always rode Specialized with the exception of one Trek. Love this rockhopper. The only two things I changed is the saddle and pedals. I purchased a separate upgraded saddle and powergrip pedals. Very easy to put together when delivered. Company provides good directions and a video you can watch if you’re unsure. Plus they have even thought ahead and use the box as the anchor for the bike while assembling if you don’t have a bike stand.

Fun All Round Bike

I got this bike instead of a hybrid. This offered more cushion while riding on poor roads, performs well on laid out trials and is plain fun. Of all the bikes I tested, this was the most fun. I test rode it and couldn’t stop smiling. I swapped for a decent road tires and now can take it to work. If you are not sure what bike to buy, get this!
