    Found two on Craigslist...Opinions???

    Here is the first, more local, but I've heard not so good things about the rims on these:

    Brand new 2013 29er Cannondale Trial S2

    ...and the second...a bit further away, but drivable.

    NEW 2013 Specialized Carve PRO 17.5 Medium 29er 29


    I find this highly amusing, yet pathetically addicting...or is it the other way around??? Budget was at $700ish, but now moving up.
    2013 Cannondale Trail SL 29er 2

    So many decisions, a million revisions caught between darkness and light.

    I'd take the Carve personally but I've always been a fan of Specialized. I'm on my third in fact.

    If I don't double my original budget, I either got a screaming deal, or I went cheap.

    Carve 100%. The fork alone is enough to justify the difference.

    The Carve is on my local Craigslist and I saw the listing when it first came out. If it's really in the condition the ad says then it's a very good deal. The Trail isn't bad either but it's a lower level of bike than a top level Carve. Honestly though they are both very good bikes so as long as they fit I don't think you'd go wrong with either.
    He who dares....wins!
