2013 Specialized Crosstrail

Can't decide between the road and bike trails? No worries. Ride both with Specialized's Crosstrail. It eats up both dirt and pavement thanks to its great-handling Specialized A1 Premium aluminum frame, a bump-bustin' SR Suntour suspension fork and smooth-rolling 700c wheels. You'll also love the easy-pedaling Shimano 24-speed drivetrain and the powerful linear-pull brakes. And to make your rides even smoother, the Crosstrail boasts a ergonomic Specialized Body Geometry seat.

    Have not owned or rode a bike in 30 years. Bought a Specialized Crosstrail earlier this Spring. Tried three different brands. All were similar, and all were about the same, but to me, the Specialized just had a better fit, feel, and was more comfortable on the two trial rides I gave each bike. I ride mostly on a packed gravel trail and occasionally go in the grass and dirt to get around others. I have gone as far as 26 miles on the trail. I like the ease of shifting thru the gears, the weight of the bike, the way it handles, and the front shock to cushion small holes on the trail. I haven't had any problems with the gears or with the chain slipping. I am not sorry I bought this bike and would recommend it to anyone.

      Had to find a bike that would fit and hold me up at 54 yeares old and 230 lbs. Ride to and from the tennis club. Easy shifting, easy riding - not a lot of cash.

          I'm a bike virgin. Did a little research and decided on a Hybrid. Test rode a few at the store and settled on this one. Two weeks and 20-25 miles (again I'm a bike virgin) and I'm still very happy w/ my choice.

            I love my new Crosstrail! Of all the hybrids I test-rode, this one was the most comfortable. The riding position is more upright than many other hybrids. The Crosstrail's shifting is very smooth, the seat is comfortable, and the hand-grips are simply amazing. I use the bike for recreational riding in neighborhoods and some light trails. The tires on the Crosstrail are smooth rolling on pavement, but also have good grip in light gravel/dirt. The suspension fork really smooths out the bumps.

              GOOD : Good and fun bike for the price. Front suspension fork works well, rim brakes are pretty good, great paint job, most drivetrain components are good for a hybrid bike /shimano / BAD: wheels are not true out of the box. Really soft rims and tires seems to be not perfectly round... Low rolling tires are not safe on ride on gravel in sharp turns. After first few rides I found couple scratches on the forks top tubes . Cheap Suntour crank with good but cheap pedals. Overall, this is a good and fun to ride bike. Retail price is little to high for what you are getting. Most components are good quality and easy to upgrade if needed. I recommend this bike if you can buy it on sale. I got a great deal on mine and I shouldn't complain.

                Interesting concept for bike. Mountain bike tube size frame with 700c size tires. Sort of like a more pavement usable 29er or flat bar cyclocross. Does extremely well on rail to trail grass, dirt and gravel. Rides great for what it is also on blacktop. Pretty comfortable too. Have many types of bikes but this is my Pickup truck" kind of bike. Great platform too if your thinking of going with an electric assist kit.

                    Love this bike. owned a cheap schwinn hybrid purchased at k-mart which had the wheel hub break within 3 weeks. got my $$$ back and went and purchased the 2011 crosstrail base model. granted i am not an expert on bikes by and means and what my comparison is not a quality bike but this bike is amazing. my commute is now a pleasure. Suspension is good, shifting is smooth and bike is quick. Highly recommend it.

                      First off, I love this bike and will never own a mountain or a street bike again. I'm an athletic yet adimttedly hefty 325lb guy and this bike took all of the abuse I was able to dish out, so I give this bike a 10 on durability without a single issue to mention. I also want to comment about how much faster this bike is. On my previous two mountain bikes I was always pushing to keep up with others, now I have to slow down. On my own I was able to go about 9 miles in 30 minutes with easy and had a 5 minute break halfway through. I have no doubt that one could manage 20 miles an hour average no problem with this bike. The bike does handle really well even off road, but keep in mind that if you're a bigger person as I am that hard narrow tires will dig through soft sand fast. Also, if encounter sand on top of a hard surface under braking you will slide out fast and will need very quick reflexes. My wife tried my bike and has decided that mountain bikes are no longer for her and we are getting her an Ariel (ladies equivalent). The only thing about this bike I wasn't happy with was the front reflector. It would become loose very easily and dangle about. It was gladly fixed at the bike shop on the first tune up.
