    Just bought a Crave comp

    Per my single person conversation here:
    http://forums.mtbr.com/michigan/rock...ar-923353.html

    I was debating a rock hopper being suitable. I went in yesterday and spent several hours talking to the guy, and ended up buying a Crave comp.

    Tested it out this morning. Lightyears ahead of what I was riding (Trek 3700).

    I've got no issues with it. I'm just really happy and wanted to share.

    I rode it this morning. Yesterday I did a local mountain bike course on my Trek. Today I did the same course on my Crave. Average speed increased by about 1 mph and an overall faster time.

    I did almost go over the handle bars. The front brake is quite good and I'm not used to having shocks that aren't blown.

    I have a Carve Comp it is a good fast XC bike with decent handling. The only upgrade I did was to install XT brakes and rotors to improve the braking.
