Advice on Cross bike model to choose.
Im trying to help my father buy a new bike, and looking for any advice i can pass on to him, so he can get the propper bike. I know my roadbikes, but i have no expirence with Crossbikes or suspension systems, so need all the help i can get.
The bike we are looking for is to be used for cycling year round, on dirtroads and forest trails. Its not ment for propper offroad or gravelbiking.
My father is 185cm high and weight around 140 kg. so the cycle must be strong enough to hold his weight and dont break down under it.
Budget we are looking to spend is around 1500 USD.
Key words in this search are.
- Easy to maintain.
I had a look at the models mainly couse i can get em at local dealers.
- Merida Crossway 300.
- Specialized Crosstrail
- Specialized Crossover
Any advice would be helpfull.
