I'm looking for a new or used geared CX bike that has a slightly sloping top tube. Can anyone offer up some examples that I should keep an eye out for? So far, I've seen the Specialized Tricross and Cannondale CAAD that have them. Thanks.
so Its just another commuter bike.. theres a whole section for those bikes
you need to know the height in the middle of the tube slope then , good luck..
You got access to all those brands in your town's Bike shops? what is there?
Shop live in shops so you can stand over the bike . pick it up till you come in contact.
see what the clearance is looking under your tires.
also my observation cross racing bikes are not offering comfort, it's beside the point.
the race is only an hour long .. and the bike is not even ridden for long , every lap.
on, hammer fast, jump stuff, run up stuff, jump back on sprint till the next obstacle.
