When you really stop and think about it, mountain biking is kind of like cycling in its most primitive form.

We hear you loud and clear, although we can’t help ourselves but to over deliver in order to make sure that you have the best possible ride. And with durable, performance-driven components, reliable V-brakes, a bump absorbing suspension fork, and Sport Trail 650b Geometry that’s sure to leave you feeling confident and inspired, the Hardrock V 650b is more than enough bike to get you out there riding dirty.
