25 Apr Preview: Specialized Rumor 29er Full Suspension
It is a rewarding time as a woman that loves bikes. More styles of bikes are being released, especially in the full suspension trail category. Specialized came out swinging with the Rumor, a 110mm travel 29er bike. This bike will be for the girl that loves to climb but wants to rip down whatever their trail has to offer.
Reasons why I’m excited for this new bike to hit market
• Shorter front end, which should provide better balance and front end handling
• Pretty low stand over for Small model (706mm)
• Well spec’d
• More options for women growing in the sport
• Carbon in the future? (maybe?!)
Rumor Expert $4,200
Fox suspension front and rear
SRAM X0 2×10 drivetrain (mix of X9 & X7 too)
Rumor Comp $2,900
RockShox suspension front and rear
SRAM X9/X7 2×10 drivetrain
We hope to get our hands on this bike once available for a review. Keep your eye out for this and other reviews! Until then visit Specialized for more info on the Rumor.
