My opinion.

My opinion on this bike is it is the best bike i have ever used. The bike is very good for trails. One time i was riding this bike on a really muddy trail, the mud and water was so high my feet were touching the water when they were on the pedals and the bike still rode very well. One thing i do not like about this bike is the gears do not go as high as a road bike. Meaning you have to pedal a lot faster to go the speed you desire to go. To fix that problem you only have to buy front gears, and the shifter for the gears.

Not great for rough trail riding

This bike does not have a tapered head tube or thru axle, which is not ideal for trail riding. The short travel fork works well for cross country and gravel riding but again, not ideal for trail riding. I do appreciate the internal routing availability for a dropper post. I would not recommend to someone who is serious about trail riding and wants upgradability. that being said the short travel and good drivetrain make it decent for beginners who want a bike for cross country or light trail use.

My third Rockhopper

I'm loving this bike, only a couple of rides in but all of them have been superb. Moving from 26" to 29" has been a new experience, totally recommended. Gravel roads are so easy to manage. Happy riding :)

Amazing

Got to participate my first bike race and I can say the Rockhopper Comp 29 made it easier for me to steer and pedal at high performance! I’ve taken it on dirt, rocky, muddy and hard pavement trails. This bike is great for those who are getting into bike or are professionals. I love it!!

I like it

I bought my Rockhopper Comp 29 (yellow) circa Spring 2022. Haven't put as many miles on it as I had hoped but I am still trying. I love it and it rides perfect and looks great. Website lists it for $950. I bought from a local dealer (James Bros Bikes) in Auburn Alabama and I believe it was same price. I added a helmet from the shop so my total was more.

Road/offroad tails/jumps

Great all r oi und bike but whilst doing wheelies and you let it down imence stress goes through the fame and not the forks as the forks don't compress, good for up to 6ft jumps and small skatepark jumps

Would Recommend?
Yes!

Great bike

Love the bike so far! Great ergonomics for my body, stops on a dime and the gear range is excellent. I got the red and like the other reviews (I read after) it’s definitely not red way more burnt orange. All in all I love it but I’d get black instead.

Would Recommend?
Yes!

Nice smooth ride

Moving from a 27.5" Jamis Trail X A1, this is an upgrade. The 29" wheels make a difference for a nice smooth ride on gravel. Can't wait to get it on the trails. Like the 1x9 gearing. I don't change gears a ton and don't need the 3x8 that I used to roll with. I'm a tweener at 5'10" and test rode a large frame and a medium frame. The medium felt lighter to me, more nimble, so I went with the medium. Taking advantage of the sale price was a bonus! Happy with this bike. The battlecast color is stealth like and looks sick!

Would Recommend?
Yes!

Daughter loves it

My wife owns the size small version of this bike and when it was time for my daughter to buy a new one, we knew exactly what to get her. She went with a size medium and absolutely loves it. The one item it was missing for her needs was a dropper post, which I was able to add on my own. Perfect bike for trail riding.

Would Recommend?
Yes!
