/ FS: Specialized Tricross.
It's like this one...
With the following changes.
1. The handebars were swapped for Prolite 'Abductor' Carbon/Alu bars
2. The shifters were replaced with 105 (5700) shifters
3. The cassette was replace with a 12-30 10 speed
4. It has mudguards fitted
It was previously used as a road bike but then I got a proper road bike so it was of no use to me. I made the modifications listed above then gave it to my wife as a present. She rode it 5 miles then decided cycling wasn't for her. So the gear cables will need adjustment after a little while because they'll stretch and stuff.
Cosmetically there's hardly a mark on it. I'll be taking some pictures later today and I'll link them in on here.
If you have any questions please just give me a shout.
Ah yes, it's 56cm.
how wmuch? ;-)
I have no idea what it's worth with its new shifters/cassette/handlebars.
I'm open to offers tho :-)
I have the model down from this and it's brilliant - highly recommended.
Oh and....bump. ;)
As above, great bike. Brilliant commute machine, loves dirt track, tow path and road. Would snap this up but already have one!
Where abouts are you based? I interested, but does really depend on the price you are after.
North Yorkshire, near Middlesbrough.
Don't really know how much to ask for to be honest. It's pretty much in mint condition having only done low mileage. I only upgraded the shifters/cassette/chain/handlebars because I was bored one day and wanted to make it as good as I could to get my wife into cycling :-P
If youre anywhere nearby feel free to come have a look/kick the tyres, etc. Can always go out for a ride if you want to test it, I'll take any excuse to get out on my bike ;-)
I have a 2010 Tricross I've not modified. If I hadn't mashed it up a bit, I'd say it'd be worth £400. You've stuck nice 105s on rather than the clunky Tiagra it comes with (and done some other stuff I don't quite understand, but it sounds good), so I'd have thought you should ask for £500.
Forgot to mention, it has two new tyres. Continental TourRide 32mm.
Nothing too exciting or anything, my wife just wouldn't ride it with skinny tyres and these were all I could get from my LBS on the day.
Decided to let the market decide and put it on eBay :)
God help me posting the beast to wherever the buyer is from!
