2018 Specialized Rockhopper 29″


After a few years of good use and a few mountain bike races I’ve decided to sell my 2018 Specialized Rockhopper. I have another 5 months of indoor trainer confinement due to certain medicines that thin blood. I had planned on upgrading my XC race bike over the holidays anyway, but I didn’t expect to sell the Rockhopper this soon.

The original bike when I purchased it from Richardson Bike Mart
