    Hey all,
    I quit smoking a few weeks ago and feel so good I decided to get a bike and go all the way on health.
    I went to a LBS and decided to spend $300-$400 on a new bike.
    Of course I fell in love with a more expensive bike.
    Im going back tommorow to tell them I want it.
    Specialzed Hardrock comp (disc) asking $460.00(500 w/tax)
    Its white and I rode it around the block.
    I read a million reviews and there all good except for the pedels.
    I basically decided to ride back and forth to work(street)
    Will it be a mistake to get this bike?
    Also I was wondering if I will be able to upgrade this bike.I love rims without spokes(like mag).
    Also thinking of adding white fenders.
    Thanks in advance
    John

    Congrats on ditching the evil weed and taking up biking. You are kidding about the last part right?

    LOL.....it was just a joke.I really do want a rear fender cause I love riding in the rain.Altough my bike shop showed me a pretty cool rain coat to prtect my back.
    Any way does anyone have a opinion on my bike choice?
