2010 Tricross - something new with the forks?

What's new on 2010 Tricross.. I read somewhere they changed the forks for the 'shudder' problem. Is that right? Anything else new?

2009 models are going for 10% off, not a whole bunch, so I dont mind waiting for a 2010 if there are improvements.

Dunno, but I know Specialized is blowing out 2009 frames, so I'd suspect some major change since that's usually their mode when there's a major product change.

The fork on the new 2010 Tricross Comp is the S-Works fork. They also changed the canti's to the wide model. Bars are different now. They are using some new bars called CX Pro. They are very shallow drop bars and quite nice. Full 105. So far, I love the bike. Seems a little lighter than my 2006 model.

Here's mine.



p.s. They are also quite a bit cheaper. About $400 cheaper. LBS guy told me that the materials are cheaper now so the savings are passed on to the customer..
