What do you crave? Tacky singletrack and hero dirt beneath dripping coastal redwoods? Loose, sandy gnar with drifty turns through every corner? Whatever your passion, Specialized's Crave Comp 29 has the goods to satisfy your needs. Built around an M4 aluminum frame and RockShox Recon fork, the Crave Comp 29 is an XC demon. Light, stiff, efficient; all words that add up to "fast." Big 29-inch wheels with Specialized rubber are the ticket to traction and handling, while Shimano Deore brakes offer no-fuss dependability no matter the trail conditions. The SRAM/Shimano 2x10 drivetrain has the legs to power over the climbs, rail the descents, and hammer all the way back to the parking lot. When you crave it all, the Crave Comp 29 handles it all.

This bike rocks. Was looking for awhile and tried many different bikes, by many different brands. I originally was set on the Pitch but once I gave this a good test run, I knew I was in love. The bike handles amazing, brakes are fantastic and the lock out system is easy to use and very handy. Really have enjoyed this bike so far. Make sure you buy it from these guys. My local shop didn't even offer this model to me which ended up with them not getting the sale.
Whether you are a racer on a budget or just an enthuiest who likes to ride some local trails but want the best bike (weight and componentry wise) without busting the bank, then the Crave is your bike. This bike allows me to bike like I never could on cheaper, heavier & clunkier bikes.
