I am a fan of Specialized. I nearly bought the same model in a different color, but it was too much debt to me, so I bought a non-disk Crosstrail instead.[View attachment 3557741
Here’s mine. A 2006 Specialized Hard Rock Comp Disc. I’ve had it since new. I recently started to ride it more because fatty needs to do something. It’s been a drag because there was something up with the gear selector and brakes were needing a lot of travel. I will probably need new pads soon. Either way, I’ve adjusted all so now it stops and changes gears like it’s supposed to. So now I ride more often.

I didn’t realize how easy it was, #5 Allen wrench and a tug on the cables. Easy! Everything is original and the rotors have rust on them because it's been ridden on bike paths in Florida near the ocean on vacations. The biggest problem now is I don't have the callouses to deal with how shitty the seat is. I forgot how bad it is and had to take a few days off last week so the pain would subside. I've been riding my nearly 1 mi (roughly 1.2kms) once a day when I'm not at the office and it has gotten easier and walking has felt less unstable afterwards. So I guess things are happening.
