Nope, this is one of the stupid Santa Barbara kids that keep making all the stupid posts. You can almost tell what a bike is for by looking at the name. Cowen = John Cowen - Pro Dirt Jumper/badass

For once, I actually agree (I think, it was hard to make out what you said: you were talking about food too). :stupid:

What is "spiking" and how can I eliminate it in my Jr. T? I am fairly new to freeriding and still in the process of learning things.

why would you randomly ask this in a thread about nothing near what you are looking for?

FEAR ME ^
i dont know how well a hard rock would survive a 32' double...
i destroyed my 1st bike (so trek trail bike) doin like 6' doubles (and lotsa drops to flat) and it was similar

Honestly, this should be in the beginners forum. When a frame costs $400, and a bike costs $500, you can't compare the frame and the bike. Don't be stupid.

If you want to get a good jumping bike, look at the Specialized P. series. If you can get a used 03/04/05 P. and just work with that. I have a 03 P1 and I love it, it has perfect geometry for jumping, and I got it for $400.

But if you're not racing 4X and you're hitting single jumps, not tight rhythms, stick with your Stab and don't waste your money. And think about what you're asking before you come up with rediculous questions like this.

wow what a stupid question. go home to pinkbike, bud. I actually started out riding a hardrock too, back when i was a grom. I upgraded all the parts until the only thing stock was the seatpost. I eventually got too good for the frame though, and the left dropout seperated from the chainstay via a minor case... crumpled the whole rear end... I'm done with aluminum HT frames... :dead:

Yea, i started with a hardrock also, and my dropout also seperated. I rode the hardrock for about 3 months, got too good for it and saved for a new bike, its not a bad bike to start out on but the cowan would be much better man.
