    I started wearing loose fitting jerseys (LL Bean) and really like them. To be completely honest, I think the main reason is I'm not exactly in the shape I'd like to be in to wear form fitting...

    MTB crank should work fine. I've done it before and had no issues. Most on here would consider a 1:1 gear ratio a VERY low granny gear. I would personally go with the 50/34 and a 11-27 cassette...

    I read on Bicycle Quarterly that this is the opposite of what they have found. Larger volume tires don't "drive" in things like thorns and nails but rather roll over them since it's not as much...

    It's pretty common for the manufactures to skimp on certain areas. Saddle, front derailleur, bottom bracket, headset and other places that the consumer doesn't bother looking at or simply doesn't...

    How about not worry about the bicycle and get a cover: Robot Check

    I don't think any bicycle would survive that long outside.

    Nice bike. Any reason why you went with the Crosshair vs something like the Sport or Roadie? I like the steel forks also. I don't like having any plastic bits on my bikes. I abuse them too much.

    Yeah I saw that and it's why I don't use it anymore around the city, but for out of the way places, I don't mind using it. If it wasn't this, I'd be using a small cable lock which can easily be cut...

    I use this lock: https://tigrlock.com/

    It's expensive, but quite light. Goes along the top tube so it's out of the way.

    I bet you would. I'm about the same weight (little lighter) and rode a friends 13# bike and man was that thing fast. Or maybe quick is the right term. I bet it wouldn't be that much faster over a...

    I disagree. While I don't have any lightweight bikes, I've owned some in the past. The weight is noticeable. I found the lighter bikes more fun to ride. More responsive and quicker. Easier to...

    Picked this up a couple weeks ago to act as a carrot to get me back to riding after my broken leg heals.

    Yeah, I've owned many Tricross bikes.. I actually really like them. My favorite was a 2006 Comp model. Very versatile bike. Wish I hadn't sold it. Got a Moots now but it's more of a race bike...

    I ride this trail a couple times a year. Personally, I think it's boring. It's just a rail trail so there just isn't much to it. Stub Stewart is pretty nice though. Lots of trails that are CX...

    I've seen people with double panniers on the MAX before. They just stood there and held their bike. Didn't use the hooks. Nobody seemed to care.

    Most cross bikes won't allow that size tire so I think it's more unusual. Largest mine will take is a 34. That's plenty large enough for me. If I wanted something larger, I'd have to go with 650b...

    I actually went up a size. I usually ride a 54cm in a Specialized road bike, but for a Specialized Tricross, I had to go to a 56cm.
