Why should you consider the Specialized Rockhopper Comp 29? I wanted to share my ride and review for this mountain bike not just because it's worth the money, but because it has helped pass the time while we're stuck doing things locally.

Buying Story

As a beginner or newcomer to mountain biking, there was a few important things that I was looking for to suit my lifestyle. First was budget, what mountain bikes can you buy for under $1000 ? Next, would that bike be good for city riding and trail riding. Also, I wanted a good quality, ready to ride set up out of the box.

Mountain bikes under $1000 are typically going to be hard tail. You'd be hard pressed to find a dual suspension bike for under $1000 and if you do, you're probably going to sacrifice in other areas to hit that price point. For a beginner, a quality hard tail bike with disc brakes made the most sense and if it's something that you feel is needed, you can always upgrade down the road.

What we didn't account for was the shortage of bike inventory worldwide. With COVID, many people are stuck at home and like us, decided to buy a mountain bike to help do more activities locally.

Checking local stores, hunting online, it was looking like we were too late until, a phone call to a local bike shop got us the last two available.


Highlighted Key Features

Shimano Deore rear derailleur provides crisp, reliable shifting that you can count on when the going gets rough. This is great for riding mountain trails because it keeps things simple, you don't have to worry about shifting with both hands. Plus! with the alignment of the sprockets, it reduces strain on the chain.

The tires. Ground Control Sport, 29x2.1" front and rear. There's great quality to get right out of the box and the tread design on the front helps with breaking and the rear for traction.

SR Suntour XCR-Air, rebound adjustment w/remote lockout, 80/100mm of travel. In other words, you can lock in the shocks if you are in the city or out on the mountain. It more or less makes it a hybrid, for my use anyways.


Favourite Thing

Buying a mountain bike for under $1000 you can probably expect you are getting disc brakes, but if you aren't, you might want to reconsider because when you are on a steep downhill, you will REALLY want that extra stopping power and reliability.

The Specialized Rockhopper Comp 29 comes with an awesome set of Shimano BR-M315, hydraulic disc brakes, with resin pads that definitely do the job, and it's a nice treat to have high quality brakes on a bike in this price range.
