At a glance

The 2015 Specialized Rumor 650b is an Trail mountain bike. It has RockShox suspension and a Shimano drivetrain. The bike is part of Specialized's Rumor range of mountain bikes.

We’ve all heard the old euphemism, you can’t have it both ways. But our Rumor FSR 650b, however, lets you have your cake and eat it too. It climbs well, it descends with confidence, it looks amazing—it’s the perfect jumping off point into the world of trail riding. Even better, every component of the bike, from the handlebars to the crankarm length, is tailored for both women and rider size. And just as importantly, its Women’s 650b Trail Geometry creates a roomy, responsive, and confidence inspiring ride quality with a low standover height, while every aspect of the suspension has been scrutinized and custom-tuned for women.
