Strengths:    This bike weighs the same as the pro model as my neighbour owns one. Yu are definately getting value for money as it has a really good build on it with a superb adjustable bounce. You can not beat riding next to a show off in the night on a track as it the black paint job gives this the ultimate diamond finish. Overall excellent, no problems with it so far.

Weaknesses:    to much envy from other riders

Bottom Line:   
This bike kicks a## and thold Sez SO!

Strengths:    Great spec for the money. Frame is beautifully made for the price. X9 rear mech. It's easier to clean than my full sussers

Weaknesses:    Only sold in UK Halfords/Bikehut stores - deserves better!
Saddle a bit thin for my 44 year old fat ass :-)

Bottom Line:   
I bought this as it was very cheap for a bike of this spec and was too good to pass over. Cost me £300 for a slightly (mostly road) used pre-owned model. Going UK price was £600 new.(newer version has air fork but lower spec gearing).
Always puts a smile on my face as it's so damn light compred to my Giant. Very nice spec for the money and i'd recommend it to anyone as a great 1st hardtail to start off your biking love affair

Looking at a 2013 Carve Comp as a base build. I am new to the MTB scene. I rode a 2014 crave base at the lbs, I can tell the components are low end, especially the brakes compared to riding a 2014 trek superfly 9.7. Ride was good though. Possible mods include upgraded brakes, shifters and derail ... Read More »

AWOL COMP or TRICROS COMP: what to choose?

What I'll be using it for: * Mostly commuting * The occasional long ride out into the wilderness/camping * Maybe, someday, a race Why I like the AWOL: * It's indestructible, or at least near there... I could be rough with it * Steel means I might be able to sell it for more later (compared to car ... Read More »
