Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Tricross SS Pics and Felt Dispatch

I have searched the forums for pics on the 08 Tricross SS and can't find any. Could post some pics of the bike for me, and not the one from Specialized's web site.

I'm looking to buy my first SS and it's going to be the Tricross or the Felt Dispatch. Two very different SS(s) I know.

While we are at it I'd like to see some pics of the Dispatch too.

Thanks for your time,
Kevin

The felt dispatch is awesome. It has a more relaxed geometry compared to other SS bikes. The carbon fork makes it such a smooth ride. You'll probably have to replace the freewheel cog when you get it, since the stock one seems kinda cheap..plus its noisy as hell when you coast

I've seen one in person and wasn't impressed with the components but the frame was nice. The thing was heavy as hell though, I thought it would have been much lighter. That is probably due to the cheap components; is it available as a frame-set?

you can't sell a bike for 700 dollars that a clyde can jump over a trunk and ride away just fine while keeping it under a number of pounds. anyone who's serious about CX to the point where they want to get the bike lighter should have no problem replacing the saddle and wheelset(heaviest things on the bike IIRC) with something more to their taste.

i don't think specialized sells just wheelsets of anything but s-works frames.
