2018 Specialized CrossTrail Expert Carbon update

Seven months on, I thought I'd provide some feedback on the 2018 Specialized CrossTrail Expert Carbon. I really enjoy riding this bike, although my fatbike usually takes precedence. The bike is quite fast and nimble. It's very controllable, even at slow speeds. I went for a Medium size when a Small size would, technically, have been a better fit. In the real world, the Medium size feels much better to me.

The Fitness Brain suspension tech works very well on the routes I take, although these are not 'difficult' routes that test the suspension out much.

One downside is that the brakes are absolutely terrible! This is something I need to look at and will ask the shop to investigate when the service time is due.

However, overall it's a lovely bike and is built very well - it feels solid and a high quality product.
