    You can look for a used Specialized Tricross Sport. I have a 2009 model and it meets all of your preferred criteria. I picked it up for $500 on Craigslist a few years ago.

    An adventure/gravel bike, while appearing beefy on paper, is a very noticeable step up from a mountain bike on the road (and a corresponding noticeable step down off road, not to mention mud).

    Agreed^. A lot of times people don't know what they have/are selling. Not a huge deal. But having said that, the potential buyer should have some know-how and understand what to look for.

    Thank you for your contribution to the 41. I'm sure your post will have saved an unknowing user from a "I wonder what would happen if..." moment, similar to when I tried to put a banana through a...

    Tiagra works just fine and I think the price is fair if everything is in good shape. You don't need Ultegra-level parts if you're just commuting. You can probably fit some 700x25/28 tires for it...

    A taller head tube usually corresponds with a more upright position. Other factors are seat and top tube length and head and seat tube angles, but it's not a clear more/less = upright relationship;...

    I thought all tires were tubeless, as none come prepackaged with an inner tube.

    Tricross Sport Triple with 28-38 mm tires on the road = doable, but not as enjoyable as my road bike. Feels sluggish, heavy, and less responsive, but speed-wise, not too different.

    Gravel bikes and adventure bikes, to me, mean the same thing: do-it-all bikes for mixed-terrain rides.
    Cyclocross bikes, on the other hand, imply racing features, such as a more aggressive geometry,...

    Maybe you can get another set of wheels/cassette/tires that is better geared towards road riding?

    I think a few different factors might be in play here. The bike could be heavier than a road bike....
  11. Spending more time on the CX/commuter - expectations?

    Lately I've been spending more time on my 2009 Specialized Tricross Sport (triple), mainly for commuting (rack + 1small pannier bag). I can't help but notice the lack of "zip" (which I suppose I...

    It's definitely possible to get a quality used road bike for $300. It helps if you have a rough idea of what you're looking for, and it also will require frequent scouring on Craigslist and a little...

    So what happens when you shift the front shifter? Does the derailleur respond correspondingly?

    Had one of these on a SS MTB back in the day and it popped off when I hit a bump and flew into my rear wheel, severing mangling 2 spokes in the process.

    The rim (from what images I can find on Google) seem to take regular spokes so as long as you have a hub with the same number of holes, just calculate the new spoke length you need and you should be...

    While the H+ Son Archetype/105 wheelset should be a fine wheelset, a traditional 14mm (inside diameter) clincher will take a 28mm tire just fine. I'm not trying to talk anyone out of a wheel...

    A bit late to the party, so this will be of use only to posterity... but from my experience the SST AL is lighter than a Kilo TT. The geometry of the SST AL (roadie geo) is better suited for...

    Venice or Olympic all the way. Not ideal but that would be my choice. My other suggestion would be Jefferson to National to Westwood to Palms then somehow get to Ocean Park.
