First MTB purchase

Excellent first timer mountain/trail bike. I've used it for the everyday road bike and it's amazingly smooth. I ran a few off road trails and it's excellent for the beginner. Fork travel works for me and what i've put it thru.

Great starter bike

Everything I expected from Specialized. Easy to order, picked up at my local dealer who put it all together for me. Bought it as my second bike for those easy days with family and for faster paced single track rides. Just what I needed for that. . The only thing I wasn't expecting is the color. It looks light grey online. Please note that the Satin Clay is NOT grey. It has a very subtle lavender tint. It's like a very light grey with a little light purple. Not as noticeable in the sun, but you can really tell inside. I'm wrapping mine with a black geometrical pattern so it's good. Just something to keep in mind if you are ordering online without actually seeing the bike.

Love this bike!!

Recently purchased this rig and have rode it quite a bit. Today was almost 17 miles. Mixture of paved trails...some easy off road stuff. Haven't rode in a bit, but this bike really shines.
