I have an older Crosstrail, and it is a great utility bike, that likes to go fast....... It's not a replacement for what you already have, but a great do it all bike. And the lock out suspension really does soften the ride, when you need it. It will do fine on lite trails, gravel, dirt, etc; but it ain't a mountain bike like your recently acquired bike. Schwalbe Marathon Supremes do wonders in transforming it to more roadworthy, in 35 and 40 sizes. It's a beast as a grocery getter.
