If you're the one in your group that's always getting followed on the trail, the Rockhopper Expert 29 is here to make sure that it stays that way. We built it to be light, durable, and exceedingly capable, but how we did it is far more interesting. It all starts with an alloy construction that'll resist corrosion and take a beating, while the components are purposefully selected to squeeze every last drop of performance for the money. But what we're most proud of is the Rockhopper's Trail 29 Geometry. It features a low bottom bracket, roomy top tube, and short chainstays to keep you ripping and confident both up and down the trail.
  • The frame is constructed from lightweight A1 SL aluminum in order to provide a compliant, durable platform to support our acclaimed Trail 29 Geometry. Combined, you get a bike that's more than efficient on climbs and eager to get down to business on descents.
  • A Manitou M30 29 fork offers 80/100mm (size-specific) of plush, trail taming travel and stiff 30mm stanchions.
  • It's hard to beat the blend of durability, reliability, and performance that the Shimano SLX rear derailleur provides. It's designed to take a hit, and more importantly, its shifting is crisp, precise, and always on the money.

Our bikes are prepared 'Ready to Ride' with the exception of fitting the pedals and straightening the handlebars - instructions will be included. We dispatch our bikes in full size bike boxes so everything including the gears are setup prior for minimum effort.

For orders to the Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Northern Ireland & Scottish Highlands please contact us to confirm we can arrange delivery.

Trek, Brompton & current year Whyte bikes can be purchased online, but must be collected in-store. This is to ensure the customer receives a personal level of service and that their new bike is built and fitted correctly for maximum enjoyment.

For orders placed before 3pm and shipped via Royal Mail, we advise a delivery time between 2 - 3 working days.
