Purchase: Trek 7200 vs Specialized Crossroads!!!!
Hey team, I need some of the expert advice again! I have an opportunity to buy a nice looking
(from Craigslist photo) Trek 22' 7200 bicycle for 200$. a few dollars more than I paid for my 2006 Specialized Crossroads XC with a 17.5' seat post.
Ive heard several of you say the 17in frame may be too small, im 6'. I often find myself wishing i could lean forward on long rides(2-10 miles) with the upright position. Wondering if this new Trek is the better deal. I know the specialized bike is the better quality bike, but if the trek fits better....that i might consider selling the Specialized, im sure for 200 or so. I dont like the way i do feel a little cramped on the specialized and want to see how the 22' frame makes me feel on long rides.
Any thoughts and your time to share is appreciated! I love this forum!
