Specialized Rockhopper Comp 29er

So after my 2 days of intense initiation into the Specialized family and a long look at the huge dealer book I thought it was time to share some of my fav's for the coming season.
The Rockhopper Comp 29er is probably not too high on most people's list but I think it will be quite popular with some.
Firstly at $1199.00 it is right on the money for any entry level rider or someone looking at a second (or 3rd or 4th etc) bike to do their own comparison to a 26 inch.
Secondly it can be easily converted to a single speed as it has a neat set of sliding dropouts.
5 sizes from 15.5 inch through to 23 inch means everyone can have one. Sure it's only got an entry level spec with Alivio shift gear, but the custom tuned Suntour fork up front and hydro discs at this price point are a winner.
Due in store the 2nd week of September.
