I'd say for $1000 it should have a better component spec. It should at least have better rims and a better fork for that amount of $. I don't see why cdale put the WTB dual duty rims on there, because I can't think of very many, if any 29ers that have rim brakes. I'd like to see what other people have to say about the component spec.
Both bikes are very similarly equipped. The specialized's fork is a step up from the cannondale, and I guess i just dont like the way the rims on the cannondale look, they probably get the job done well. I personally would go with the cannondale because the frame is handmade in USA.
I haggled a bit, but it was my size in stock, so i'm sure that helped. Even if you get one fro like $900, it's the bestbang for the buck in my opinion. Ride one, and make sure you like the GF G2 Geometry.
