Trail

At a glance

The 2016 Specialized Rumor Expert 650b is an Trail mountain bike. It has RockShox suspension and a SRAM drivetrain. The bike is part of Specialized's Rumor range of mountain bikes.

When it comes to shooting down a twisty ribbon of singletrack, it’s tough to beat the 650b wheel size found here on the Rumor FSR Expert 650b. Supple suspension travel, a top quality component selection, and obsessive attention to detail—the Rumor has it. What really sets it apart, however, is the attention that went into making it the perfect women’s trail bike. To start, every component of the bike, from the handlebars to the crankarm length, is tailored for both women and rider size. And just as importantly, when paired with the 650b wheel size, its Women’s Trail 650b Geometry creates a roomy, responsive, nimble, and confidence inspiring ride quality with a low standover.
