Yesterday I bought a brand new Specialized Hardrock Comp 07 and I like the way she handles but it has just a small catch. After some hours of road riding to test the bike and doing a concrete drop (for now nothing more than 2 foot), I noticed that the rim appears to be out of true but when I spin the wheel it looks like the tire is wobbling on the rim. The bike is stock and the tires are Specialized Resolution Sport 2.1. Anyone could give me a good explanation for this???
The Hardrock doesn't come with bullet proof wheels, I would take it easy on it for a week or so then take it back to the shop where you bought it and have them do a "check up" on it. By then the cables will probably stretch a little as well. After it is broken in and adjusted, is should be a solid bike for you.:thumbsup:
Today I watched better the rims when I was riding and noticed that IS the tire bouncing on the rim. Perhaps it's not well seated. The guy at my LBS told me that those tires do that. I don't know if it's true.
