Under Test: Specialized AWOL Comp Bicycle

There’s something about this that’s so black, it’s like how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black. – Nigel Tufnel, Spinal Tap

Specialized’s AWOL family are built around steel frames and forks, generous tire clearance, disc brakes, and brazed-on fittings for nearly anything you’d want. The AWOL Comp model pictured above features Reynolds 725/520 Cr-Mo tubing, a SRAM/FSA 2×10 drivetrain, and Specialized’s own AWOL handlebars and saddle.
