Description

Every trail and road is an invitation to adventure when you're riding Specialized's Crosstrail Sport. 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 quick-shifting Shimano 18-speed drivetrain and the outstanding all-weather stopping power of the Tektro hydraulic-disc brakes. And to make your rides even better you get a supportive Specialized Body Geometry seat.

Love it

Pros:
Fast, Durable, Lightweight, Versatile
Cons:
None
Best Uses:
Commuting/City, Trail riding, Road Biking
Comfy, fast, confident ride. Been riding since fall 2013 and I only have good things to say about it. Brakes work very well tires are fast on street and grippy when on trails. I received $300 off when I purchased at Caps in New West

Outstanding

Pros:
Versatile, Smooth inner tread, Wide gear range, Blast to ride
Cons:
Heavy but worth it
Best Uses:
Everything
My Crosstrail Sport replaced my 20 year old Crossroads. My Crossroads is a fantastic bike; held up great and fun to ride. Been riding more on rougher trails so suspension seemed like a good idea. First I was thinking mountain bike. Rode some but was not impressed. A mountain bike is good for going up and down steep dirt trails but not much else. The Crosstrail can do almost anything a mountain bike can but is more versatile. It has a wide range of gear ratios so you can go fast. The knobby-free center of the tread is quiet and smooth on pavement and improved trails. Never lacked traction. Shifts fast and precisely. V-brakes are simple, light and powerful. Disks work a little better in some conditions but not worth their downsides (Google "v-brakes vs disk brakes"). Looks great; fit and finish are top quality. [...]Bikeshop set everything up perfectly. Best thing is it is an absolute blast to ride. I can fly on this bike; love it!

Great bike, I love mine!

Pros:
Lightweight, Handles Well Off-road, Durable, Great Components
Cons:
Pedals
Best Uses:
I ride this bike everywhere and everyday. Overall it is great, it shifts nicely, has a great ride with the lockout front fork and it can coast forever too. My only problem is the stock pedals, Specialized should be ashamed of themselves for putting them on this bike. Thanks Johnny Sprockets!

Worth every penny!!!

Pros:
Handles Well Off-road, Great Components, Lightweight
Cons:
Pedals, Seat-Saddle
Best Uses:
Commuting, Pavement, Off-Road
This is was my first quality bike since my Trek 820 was stolen in '93. My current bike was a Mongoose MTB and I was due for an upgrade and what a day/night difference. I was looking for a hybrid with upright riding so I could switch between pavement and trail riding without discomfort and the Crosstrail was exactly what I was looking for. The Crosstrail is lightweight, has easy shifting and you can feel how great it rides. The lockout fork was an added bonus that you can switch easily. If you're looking for a hybrid test ride the Crosstrail. You won't regret it!

You get what you pay for!!!

Pros:
Great Components, Lightweight, Durable, Handles Well Off-road
Cons:
Best Uses:
Pavement, Off-Road
I am an ex runner and bought this bike to get much needed exercise. I have never owned a bike of this quality. My Crosstrail Sport is a perfect example of "you get what you pay for". The bike is much better than I imagined. It is great for pavement and groomed trails. I haven't taken it off road/trail but I'm sure it would work. Easy shifts and the miles just melt away. If you don't have a lot of safe roads to ride and don't want to buy a road bike this is the bike for you.

You won't regret the purchase

Pros:
Smooth shifting, Good Performance Uphill, Front Fork Performance
Cons:
Best Uses:
Gravel, Off-Road, Pavement
This is my first bike in over 30 years after a Schwinn Continental...what a difference! With a range of 24 gears, hills are easier than I remember. Gear shifting is precise - no slippage or misses. My neighborhood is full of terrain that is far from level. The Crosstrail is a comfortable ride with bicycle shorts and I agree with the description given by the sales person...the bike is a hybrid on steroids. The stock pedals need more bite to prevent slipping. I'll own and ride this yellow and black beauty for a long time. Thank you Spokes, etc. for the education and the positive experience in the purchase.

love it

Pros:
Great Components
Cons:
none
Best Uses:
I bought this bike for city and groomed trail riding and I'm really pleased with it. It's lightweight and you can feel the quality as you ride. The upright riding position works for me. The front shock adds a lot to the riding pleasure. Have not ridden it in rough places. If you want a hybrid, check this out.

Nice Ride

Pros:
Lightweight, Durable, Handles Well Off-road, Great Components
Cons:
Best Uses:
Off-Road, Pavement, Commuting
I enjoyed taking this bike on the streets as well as on any groomed trails. I would recommend this bike if you are a recreational rider or for commuting to work. I really enjoy the way the gear shifters work, easy to use, smooth transition between gears. I look forward to riding this bike a lot this summer.

Pros:
Handles Well Off-road, Lightweight, Durable, Great Components
Cons:
See Review
Best Uses:
Commuting, Pavement
Great bicycle for a variety of uses, commuting, recreational road riding, long hauls, and light trail use. Picks up speed very well, quality components. The only downside to this bike is that it is too long to easily fit in transit bus bicycle racks.

I purchased a second one recently.

Pros:
Handles Well Off-road, Good Value, Durable
Cons:
Best Uses:
Off-Road, Pavement
I purchased my first Crosstrail Sport over a year ago at age 50 (Xlarge frame for 6'3" over 200 lb). Its been a great way to get some quality exercise without the pounding of running. I purchased a second Crosstrail Sport less than 6 months ago (large frame only slightly smaller) so either of my sons could ride with me or get a friend to join. A friend of mine since elementary school was in Austin recently from California and I was able to hit the town lake trail with him from South Austin and back about 10 miles total. The bikes are sturdy and reliable but its strange someone else mentioned the sore palms. I purchased a set of cushioned riding gloves for this very reason and it helped a lot getting the pressure off the base of the thumbs in the palm area.

Dig It

Pros:
Handles Well Off-road, Lightweight
Cons:
Best Uses:
Commuting, Off-Road, Pavement
I use my bike primarily for commuting back roads to work - hopping curbs, over railroad tracks, potholes, etc (hence why I didn't get a typical hybrid). But I also dig taking it for long rides on the weekends. Great for both jobs. If you need something that can accommodate a WIDE variety of uses, I can't think of a better buy.

Fun for Summer and any time.

Pros:
Lightweight, Durable, Handles Well Off-road
Cons:
Best Uses:
Off-Road, Pavement, Commuting
I recently just got back into cycling, I looked at the lower model and didn't like the features, but the higher model was over kill for a basic beginner. This bike fits perfectly if you are any one like me who wants the basic capability to hit the more scenic trails and/or just head to work. Its got great acceleration and superb handling for a mid-range bike. The up-right frame is comfortable, but it puts a lot of pressure on your palms.

Great bike

Pros:
Lightweight, Handles Well Off-road, Durable, Great Components
Cons:
Best Uses:
Pavement, Commuting, Off-Road
I have owned a few bikes, the last one being a comfort style bike. A more upright riding position. I then started commuting to work and it just didn't feel that good. So I looked around and found the Crosstrail Sport. This a light, nimble, and fast bike. Shifting is very smooth. The seat is very comfortable. My only complaint is the handlebar grips. Wish they were a tad softer. Great bike.
