The Specialized Tricross is a terrific and under appreciated bike. Consider it the "Swiss Army Knife" of cycling. Specialized came out with a great idea in the Tricross. Here is a machine with great poise and quick handling, as smooth as the Roubaix, able to take on a luggage rack and panniers for touring, handle the crud, and go virtually anywhere. But wait, there's more! Swap out the 32c tires for a set of road-rubbers and you have an all-year training bike that will keep up with all those fancy racers in their lycra tights! Not afraid of some snow? Stick on a set of studded tires and this bike can take on the Yukon! The cantilever brakes and wide fork and rear assembly let you dress this date with a wide range of tires. The aluminum frame can take a lot more abuse that a Carbon road frame. And did I mention how sweet it handles? Here's the rub... The die hards could not live with a 'cross bike aimed at the general public. So, Specialized gave in and came out with the Crux. Last year they did in the "Expert" Tricross; probably the best in the line up for general users. Not withstanding, the Comp is still a great value. Try it for yourself. Let's hope Specialized doesn't give up on this bike. If they do, go out and find a used one. It's worth the ride.
