Thanks Dirtbleed. I wonder how much lighter a medium would be?

With the limestone paths that I've been riding here in Florida on my Crosstrail Sport I've found that the water bottle gets mud splashed onto the mouthpiece. Does anyone use fenders on their Crosstrail for this and have any pics of how they look? Wet sand definitely splashes onto the front sprockets too.

Look at post 805. DougG has some nice fenders.

Here's a couple of pictures of the front and rear mudguards that I bought a while ago for my CrossTrail. They're clip-on ones and do the job quite nicely.

The front one is attached to the downtube and the rear one clips onto the seatpost.





The front one is an SKS X-Board Downtube Mudguard - Dark Black. Cost was 6.25GBP.

The rear one is an SKS X-Blade Rear 26-27.5" Rear Mudguard - Dark Black. Cost was 12.49GBP.

I've since put a rack and bag on the rear and the rack has an integrated mudguard.

Fitness Brain

Howdy folks! Looking at several bikes-- Trek DS2, Roam, Crosstrail. I'm a little concerned about the the Fitness Brain, but I've only experienced it in the LBS lot. I like the lock-out on the other brands, but I'm not sure if that's the deal breaker. Tell me your opinions on this and why the Crosstrail won you over, as compared to the other brands. I'm sorry if the Brain question has been covered-- tried to weed through the thread before posting.

Thanks!
