Hello, I am new to this sport and just recieved a Specialized Hard Rock Comp FS bike. Is there a way to tell the year of the bike? Serial number maybe? Thanks for any info.--Kevin

If you could post a picture, that would get you an answer for sure.
Specialized Hard Rocks are like VW bugs...lots of them over the years.

Eric's right, take pictures but be sure to get some detailed shots of the derailleurs. That will help a-lot. Us vintage guys like this kinda thing. It makes us feel like were on the show CSI :p

Your Specialized Hard Rock Comp FS is a 1999 model. Looks like it has all stock componets. You got a deal!

Geez...are we good or are we good.
Everyone pat themselves on the back! :D

Ken, you da man!. Buy yourself a Slingshot. ;)

And yes, that is a very good eBay buy. Better than any department store bike for sure!
