    2013 Carve single speed rigid, $1,300?

    The digital Switchback magazine just showed up in my inbox a few days ago, in the reviews in the back there was a black Carve single speed with the new Chisel fork, says it'll run an EBB so I guess it can be converted to a 1x set-up, this would be similar to the Pro model they sold on the other side of the Atlantic last year.

    Anyone seen one of these in person at the dealer yet and got a weight?
    Hardrock 29er, Niner EMD9, Cannondale F29, Camber Expert, 650b Nickel all gone.
    2014 Giant Anthem 27.5 here.

    I have a LARGE.

    I converted to tubeless, and added a carbon bar. With (2) bottle cages, and eggbeater pedals, mine weighed 22lb10oz last week.

    Best $1,300 ever spent IMO. Great bike!

    Picking mine up tmrw. Looking forward to it. I dont know much about flat bars. First SS. Is there an advantage to flat bars vs risers? I promised myself this would be the only bike I'd keep simple and stock. In dont think thats will last long.

    With modern flat bars, the only difference is the rise. Many people run flat bars on 29ers because it keeps the front end lower - i'd only change them if you find them a problem.

    Makes sense. Guess it looks odd to me. Thanks.
