Specialized Hardrock 2012 Mountain Bike

The Hardrock 2012 Mountain Bike by Specialized is popular due to its durability, versatility, and capability, whether cruising through urban environs en route to school or work, tearing up some local mountain singletrack, or poaching a shortcut through the woods to a friend’s house.


Fully butted A1 Premium Aluminium frame with double ORE down tube for a lighter, more compliant and durable bike, with disc mounts for upgrading. 80mm smooth-travel SR Suntour fork with preload adjustment, lockout, and size-specific spring rates for more versatility and tunability over varying terrain. Specialized Fast Trak LK Sport 60 TPI tyres use a reduced knob height for lower rolling resistance, but have plenty of grip for confidence on the trail. Light and durable double-walled alloy rims are tough enough to handle the rough stuff. Shimano Altus Rapidfire trigger shifters are fast and reliable so you’ll never miss a shift. Shimano 8-speed, 11-34t cassette offers gearing options for a variety of fitness levels. Specialized Body Geometry Hardrock saddle has front/rear bumpers for on and off-road durability, and ample padding for comfort.
