About Specialized Carve bikes

Carve is Specialized's entry level 29", aluminium framed, hardtail Mountain Bike that's designed for cross country riding / racing as well as fast-rolling singletrack. The Carve models are a cheaper alternative to the high end 29" Stumpjumper hardtail range with a stronger focus on comfort and durability than ultralight weight and all out speed. Carve models are perfect for mountain bikers who ride more for fun and adventure and perhaps also take part in the occasional race.

Good bike. Will take a beating. Brakes are crap and so are the shifters. Will last a year or so then upgrade shifters and brakes and you good to go. Great looking bike.

Good bike let down by terrible brakes
