just purchased a new bike!!

I recently purchased my first mountain bike. It is a 2009 Specialized Rockhopper Pro. Any one have anything good or bad to say about this bike? Any1 have this bike and like or dislike it? Thanks for any input that any1 can give me.

It's a fine bike. You paid for it. Go ride it.

You have breached protocol, your noobleyness. You must take a picture of it and post it in "The really new and improved Post Your Rigs" sticky.

You're 100% correct, but what the OP is doing by posting now is nothing out of ordinary consumer purchase behaviour. In fact, it's a great example of "post purchase dissonance".

OP - it's a fantastic bike, so just go out and ride it.

I recommend rockhoppers and a couple of others to people who ask me what bike to buy. I regard them as good all around hartails.
