    I'm not sure I understand. Surely you could race in a TriCross. I'm just confused as to why the groupset is so much better on the Giant.

    Comparing TriCross to Giant TCX 1

    I'm trying to decide between these 2 bikes and with the SRAM Rival parts the TCX 1 looks like the obvious choice. Am I missing something?

    Aren't messenger bags kinda floppy on a bike? I would hate to have something moving around while I'm biking. My backpack stays pretty well in one place.

    Though that being said. I'm not sure that I like the Geometry of the Giant. I ride a XL (61cm) Secteur right now. I think the Tricross looks more similar. The Giant looks a bit more aggressive.
  6. Comparing Giant TCX 1 and Specialized TriCross

    Both of these are about 1900$. The Giant has SRAM Rival parts vs SRAM Apex on the Specialized. O_O Am I missing something here?

    It seems like every bike I like has no eyelets :D Usually the determining factor and whether I like it is purely aesthetic. For instance. I prefer the Salsa Warbird. The carbon fork has no eyelets...
  11. Drop bar cx/commuter with eyelets for fenders

    I really like the look of the Specialized Crux but the fact that it can't take fenders for the rainy season makes it a no go. ( I don't like having a rooster tail :). Anyone know of any suggestions...

    Nah I'm not really set on GT. It's just what my LBS sells. Either that or Redline/Fuji/Giant for the most part.

    Thinner tires are nice but not for winter right? Same goes for the disc brakes?

    :) fixed. I am thinking maybe a Vaya or Surly perhaps. Being as tall as I am it's hard to find stuff to test out.

    I commute with my secteur now with the fairer weather, but I need something to replace it soon. With the colder weather I'll need something that can take some wider/studded tires and also fenders. ...
