Not typical orange

This is a nice bike for the cost, but the Blaze color is not like the website photos. In natural sunlight, it is distinctly a pink-orange, like shrimp. In artificial light it looks more like a tangerine, like the photos. If you don’t like shrimp-like orange, don’t get the Blaze. Specialized should use more representative photos on the website.

Best bike I've owned. All

Best bike I've owned. All the components are high end, even for an entry level bike. Can be upgraded, but you can still have a great ride straight out the box. Highly recommend the 27.5". Incredibly responsive, light, and handles like a dream.

Good components especially for the

Good components especially for the sale price and great ride. I have always rode Specialized with the exception of one Trek. Love this rockhopper. The only two things I changed is the saddle and pedals. I purchased a separate upgraded saddle and powergrip pedals. Very easy to put together when delivered. Company provides good directions and a video you can watch if you’re unsure. Plus they have even thought ahead and use the box as the anchor for the bike while assembling if you don’t have a bike stand.
