Description
Can a sub-$2000 hardtail without a single piece of carbon stack up against cross country bikes at two or three times the price? Absolutely. The new Specialized Chisel has updated geometry and a near-perfect parts spec, making it fun, fast, and stable on descents and a rocket on the climbs. Our new favorite hardtail is only $1900.
