From the Specialized Catalog:
POINT THE TRICROSS down anything from a gravel strewn fireroad to a pothole packed bike path or maybe even a chunk of smooth singletrack, and you’ll realize that its numbness-killing chassis, predictable geometry and robust wheelset will help you redefine what’s possible on two (skinny) tires. The Aluminum frame uses slacker head geometry and a longer wheelbase for stability in any situation. Rack and fender mounts let you gear up for any adventure. The TriCross carbon fork couples precision steering with superb vibration dampening.
A do-it-all cyclocross bike. Claimed weight is 23.5lbs.
For less than the price of a generic Bike Shaped Object that anyone might buy online or from a store that sells bicycles in the Toy Department, you could be riding this vintage bicycle with quality components. The fact that it is still rolling down the road is a testament to how well it was built.
