Specialized's Rumor Comp is a 120mm-travel, no-compromise 29er women's trail bike. With some of the best standover height in the business, the Rumor's fit is second to none. The aluminum frame is light, agile, and ready to take on the rough stuff with 120mm of FSR rear suspension. A 120mm-travel RockShox Revelation fork smooths the trail so you can ride faster, while the quick-rolling 29-inch wheels roll over anything. An easy-shifting SRAM 2 x 10-speed drivetrain gives you the gearing to fly up even the steepest climbs. Specialized finished out the spec with grippy, fast-rolling tubeless-ready tires, and a bar and saddle that are sized just for women. A bike this good won't stay just a rumor for long.
Specialized's FSR suspension offers plush travel, incredible control, unbeatable traction and an overall awesome ride because it's completely unaffected by pedaling and braking forces. This design also eliminates "bobbing" for optimum climbing and acceleration. You'll be amazed.
For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.
