I just bought my first Specialized bike today used on Craigslist and would like some input from those more educated on these bikes. I was told this was a ~2002 model Specialized Rockhopper Pro. The components I have been able to identify are as follows:

19" Specialized Rockhopper Pro Direct Drive Enhance Butted Aluminum
Rockshox Judy C
Shimano STX front and rear derailleurs
Shimano Alivio crankset
Shimano IG chain
Shimano STX HB-MC32 Parallax front hub
Shimano Deore LX Parallax FH-M565 back hub
Mavic 238 rims
IRC Trailbear 26x2.25K tires
Shimano brakes (don't see model #)
bear claw pedals

I almost bought the Costco Northrock bike for $300 yesterday but after reading posts it seems most of you recommend a used bike over that one so I think I did MUCH better with this bike. I'll post pictures below.

Nothing at all wrong with that bike for a hundred bucks! :thumbsup: No high end components on it, but for the price I'm sure you knew that already. Nice find. Have fun.

dkbikes,

Actually I thought the components listed were decent quality but keep in mind the last bike I bought was a Diamond Back Topanga 25 years ago so I'm out of the loop on mountain bikes in general! Any idea what the this bike would go for (new or used with similar components). Based on prices of other similar quality bikes on Craiglist I would have thought this bike would sell for $200-300 range but I could be wrong. My guess on the price of this bike when new would be in the $700 range?

It was recently tuned up and rides really nice to me!

Anyone know how to tell what model year the bike is? I found the number on the underside of the frame: P2GH80524

Thanks

Yeah, I sold my 25 year old Diamond Back Topanga on craigslist for $65 recently so I upgraded to this bike for $35. What a difference in the quality of bike. My first impression is that this bike is awesome!

I was going to say, "Why guess when there's bikepedia.com." But that specific bike doesn't seem to be on there, at least to the extent I felt like looking. I think you're pretty close with the date, though - late '90s look to have narrower tubing. The STX stuff throws me a bit, though.

Regardless, pretty nice find. Enjoy it!

Yea, from the dealer book I still have from then the bike frame and fork look correct to 2002 model year, the parts on it are always subject to change..... So, yep, I'll go with 2002 Rockhopper!

Sell it and make a $100 profit if you want then take that extra money and buy another! Thats what I would do if I were you!

But all looks good! Have fun
