    specialized tricross comp 2009 flat handlebars?

    Hi,

    I'm supposed to be picking up this bike this weekend taught I should ask your opinion first.

    link to bike : http://www.adverts.ie/bikes/speciali...tition/1913590

    Plan on using it for every day cycling and a tour of europe next year, would it work as a flat bar?

    I have lower back issues so looking for a more upright riding position.

    Price is 450 euro with a carrier, saddle bad and mudguards, does that sound about right?

    Apparently in great condition.

    You can achieve a more upright position using drop bars (stem swap, use spacers), but you wouldn't be the first one to convert from drops to a flat/riser bar on a CX bike.
