Strengths:    Very Light Bike
Shimano XT Components are unbelievably efficient (It almost climbs on its own).

Weaknesses:    Avid Elixir 4 Brakes have a turkey wobble (meaning they are loud and shake a little when you heat em up good) problem if you beat them like I do. Avid has sent new rotors at no charge to fix problem, waiting to receive them.

Bottom Line:   
I absolutely love this bike, it rides like a much more expensive ride (I was converted to Spesh when a friend lent me his $3500 Epic Comp) This bike has even better climbing efficiency then the Epic (Cause its a hardtail)

I would recommend this bike to anyone.

Rockhopper Pro SL or Trek X-Caliber?

Hey Fellas- Just rode both of these bikes and am very impressed. The X-Caliber has a higher price point by $300 and a heavier frame. Both ride smooth and control/handling for both is solid. The Hopper has the squeaking break issue with the Juicy 3s and the rotors but I am not to worried about ... Read More »

He told me I would buy the bike if I rode it lol, and I think he is right, because I am in love with it. ... Read More »
