I received this Rockhopper Elite mountain bike today (22nd June 2022) as a warranty replacement on a hybrid bike that developed a crack in the frame.
I wanted to go one size smaller, but that wasn’t available, so I will be selling this brand new MTB, and buying a correctly sized one later in the year.
The bike has zero miles on it, I just picked it up from Specialized, Ruislip, and have put it in my garage – therefore it is in mint condition.
The retail price at Specialized, Ruislip is £949
2022 Specialized Rockhopper Elite 29er
Size: XXL (suitable for those over 6′ 3” (191cm) as per Specialized size guide)
Colour: Gloss Sage Green/Oak Green
Description from Specialized Site:
Yep we just re-read the spec sheet and still can’t believe it either. The Rockhopper Elite is one helluva lot of bike.
Air-sprung fork? Let me introduce you to your new friend Judy. Discerning when it comes to your drivetrain? You’ll find no fault—and no grade too steep—with a wide-range Shimano Deore 1×11 drivetrain. Why stop there? We didn’t in order to allow you the pleasure of stopping yourself with Shimano’s eager-to-please and oh-so-capable MT200 hydraulic disc brakes.
Each is impressive in their own right but the magic really lies in how they all come together into a Rockhopper that serves up singletrack with a nice big side of ‘Whoah so that’s what a real bike feels like.’
