Trek CrossR.I.P

I can not believe Trek would decide to discontinue the Crossrip line. Would think the market for a $1000 gravel bike would be strong, no?


Godspeed Crossrip! You are gone too soon!

Trek called it a hybrid/Urban bike

I'm surprised Trek couldn't make a go of this model.


What was the largest width tyre it could take?

From what I saw when I checked it out it capped around 40mm

It does live on as an eBike called the CrossRip+

I have never ridden a Crossrip, but some of the opinions I read about the bike were not favorable.

It's not dead. It just received a "promotion" to lead the eBike effort. The big manufacturers are putting a TON of resources into the eBike market. The Crossrip, as an eBike, may sell more than it ever did without the motor!

Exactly what I came on to say. Couple that with the fact that a lot of Trek dealers didn't even stock them, and that the Crossrip was essentially crossing over into Boone (and now Checkpoint) territory, and it's no surprise Trek is killing it.

Between the Crossrip, Domane, Checkpoint, and Crockett, Trek had too many aluminum semi-off-road drop-bar bikes. Crossrip was the oldest with the least model recognition, so away it went.
I liked mine when I still owned one; not the fanciest or lightest bit of equipment, but I put 8200 miles on it and it never gave me problems

I really enjoy my 2018 CrossRip 1. It has worked well as suburban street bike, rail-trail cruiser, I've completed a gravel event with it and am about to give a try at cyclocross with it. I fit 42mm Conti SpeedRIDE tires for gravel and suburban riding and they measured out at about 39mm due to smallish 17mm internal rim width. Currently fitted with 33mm Clement MXP cyclocross tires. Sora drivetrain has worked with no issues and TRP brakes stop as expected. I have even ridden some local singletrack on it. It is just what I wanted - a bike I can take on vacation and ride whatever I find when I get there.

Oh yeah, and only paid $850 for it during the spring sale!

Depends on your ebike, the commute itself, and your risk tolerance. I would expect to average at least 18 mph but you can probably go up to 30 mph average with the right commute/equipment.
