2014 Specialized Tricross

Try your hand at cyclocross or venture off paved roads into uncharted territory with Specialized's versatile Tricross. Its Specialized A1 Premium aluminum frame has a snappy feel you'll love and its minimal weight makes climbing steep grades easier than ever. Adding to the fine frame, the svelte aluminum fork has gobs of mud clearance and fender eyelets for year-round riding. Plus, the Tricross boasts reliable Axis wheels, a wide-range Shimano 24-speed drivetrain, sure-stopping cantilever brakes and a fine selection of Specialized's aluminum components. What's more, the frame and fork feature handy rack mounts so you can tackle commutes and weekend tours, too!

    Easy to handle, comfortable, but it's weight makes this bike difficult to accelerate quickly.

    I ride 60-90 miles a week for fun/fitness. I am 35 years old and just started riding since High school. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a bike that you can commute or ride for on paved and semi-paved surfaces. Do not recommend for any substantial offroad riding, but the bike is wonderful for sandy/gravel detours that are difficult to navigate on a traditional road bike. I have not had this much fun riding a bike since I was 10 yrs old.

    Comments:

    Overall a great bike. I wanted a general purpose utility bike that could be a speedy city bike and generally a jack of all trades. I wanted something fast, rugged, comfortable and practical. Mountain bikes and hybirds all seemed a little too clunky and slow, and pure road bikes seemed too "heads-down" and dainty to be really practical for riding in the pot-hole and cobblestone infested NYC. Cyclocross seemed the perfect compromise and the Specialized TriCross was a sharp looking bike at a very nice price point. Overall I have been very happy with my purchase. I have seen absolutely no signs of front fork "brake shudder" which some online reviewers complained about with previous gen's of the Specialized TriCross, but I did find the front derailleur to be very flimsy and defective. For a bicycle which bills itself as rugged and capable of off-road abuse the front derailleur on this bike was shockingly thin and elastic. It never shifted properly from the time I left the store. I brought it in for adjustments three times before insisting on a new front derailleur. [...] replaced the defective Shimano 2300 derailleur with a beefier Sora derailleur and the TriCross has been great ever since. Maybe I got a dud derailleur from a bad batch and it was a one-off freak thing, but I would be careful to ride the bike first and inquire about the repair/replacement policy for defective parts on new bikes before buying one of these from anyone. Other than that it has been everything I hoped it would be. I would also recommend changing over to a set of city slicks if you plan on riding primarily in and around NYC. I did and was very happy about my decision. I liked the stock Burrough CX tires but found them too sluggish for asphalt riding, I'm sure they're great for trails and mixed riding surfaces though.

      Comments:

      I purchased this bicycle as a universal all around bike. I have been riding a well made mountain bike for about 5 years before that it was x-mart junk. After doing some research a cyclocross seemed the way to go. I use my bike to commute to work about 6 months a year (currently looking into proper equipment to expand that time such as clothing and such). I have had the bike a short time but, it has been great on rail trails, single tracks, and on the road. I realize it is not a road bike but, much better suited for riding distance than a mountain bike. I could not be happier with this purchase. I probably could have went to about at least six other lbs closer to home. I originally seen on Internet and called because of price. [...] I shopped around for about 3 months talked to countless lbs. [...]
