Specialized Carve Comp 29er
2012 Model

Excellent condition

Upgrades include Rockshox Recon Gold TK front forks with 80mm travel, S-Works Fast Trak Tyres and Wellgo pedals.

The bike is in excellent overall condition with no known issues. It's been used mainly for road commuting and the occasional towpath and is a very comfortable ride. The Fast Trak tyres make road riding a little smoother. The upgraded suspension is an improvement on the original forks with 80mm of travel. There's a few very small scratches but nothing serious and only what you would expect from a bit of use. It's definitely a bike to enjoy and had some great reviews when it was released. 

It has an average rating of 4.9 out of 5 from 7 reviews on the Evans website. 

Collection / Delivery :
The bike is in Thatcham, Berkshire and I would prefer the buyer to collect with cash on collection. I can send the bike within the UK but payment will need to be by Paypal and the item shipped to the registered Paypal address. This will be an additional £60 on top of the winning auction price and will take approximately 5 working days as it will need to be safely packaged before shipping.

The reserve price is £400. I don't want to accept any offers and want the auction to run until the end.

Here's the specifications from the original release;

The base model Carve Comp 29 was designed to cruise fast-rolling singletrack. With an 80mm-travel RockShox XC32 fork, plus Shimano drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes, the Carve Comp 29 is a capable and affordable cross-country machine

Fully butted, smooth-welded M4SL alloy frame is superlight, stiff, and efficient, with 29er XC geometry, integrated, tapered head tube for front-end stiffness, plus bridge-less seatstays for compliance over bumps

Light and stiff, double-walled alloy rims for added stiffness; front hub has cartridge bearings and oversized dropout interface for front-end rigidity

Light and efficient 29 inch Specialized The Captain Control tyres are 2Bliss Ready with aramid bead for fast and predictable speed and control on the trail

Shimano Alivio crankset with forged alloy arms, Octalink-splined BB interface, and alloy outer ring means greater durability, lighter weight, and better shifting performance

Shimano hydraulic disc brakes use 180mm front rotor for increased leverage on 29 wheels, while 160mm rear rotor keeps weight low

Shimano SLX Shadow 9-speed rear derailleur for lightweight, precise shifting, and improved clearance
