was almost about to pull the trigger and get a specialized tricross comp triple
then i read on the web that there are potential downsides to a compact geometry or was it the gears?
so now i am back to being lost and confused
i figured the bike mentioned above gave me everthing i wanted or needed
an upright postion for my sometimes painful lower back and big belly
fatter tires for stability and to ease my fears when hitting a soft shoulder or rails-to-trails
but is the compact thing an issue to worry about?
is this a heavy frame?
should i give up on the tire size issue and get a pilot or roubaix in carbon?
i really was ready to but it
wish i could get the orange fade i saw on an older trek bike
that color on a tricross would be so seductive for me
so please explain the compact thing...
