    One 9 vs Specialized Carve SL

    Anyone ridden both the single speed Carve and the One9 rigid? I'm torn between the two. My local Specialiazed dealer doesn't stock any Carves and would charge me a non-refundable deposit to have a Carve SL brought in.

    I've ridden the One9 with the Niner carbon fork. Sweetness! 20 minutes on that steed and I knew a rigid SS was in my near future. The steering was telepathic and everything was so precise.

    Carve vs One9 - by the numbers:
    HTA 71.5 vs 71.1
    STA 71 vs 73
    TT 23.8 vs 23.8
    Stays 17.4 vs 17.3
    Wheelbase 42.7 vs 43.1
    Stack 24.6 vs 24.3
    Reach 16.2 vs 16.5

    One 9 vs Specialized Carve SL

    One9 would probably be used off eBay or Craigslist, depending in what comes up. Would throw on my Crest wheelset, xt brakes, and whatever other upgrades I have lying around.
