Trying to decide between both of these hybrids. I usually ride pavement 50% trails 50% . No agressive riding. Sand or hard trails in state parks
Any Preferences? Hard to compare side by side since no shops have both in stock ever.
I am 5' 8" and weigh 190.
I am leaning toward the specialized bike right now. Its also a little bit cheaper.
Specialized Crossroads/ Colnago racer(can no linger ride it due to physical limitations
The Specialized Crosstrails is just the updated version of the Crossroads..they added disk brakes and took away the lockout fork feature..its basically a good bike thats easy to grow into liking very much and enjoy upgrading(if you"re into that) But! ..its definitly more for the bumpy roads and it is NOT A TRAIL BIKE, although easy ,hard packed trails are no problem...go for it.
