Description

Whether you're looking to race cyclocross or explore the dirt roads in your area, Specialized's CruX E5 is your willing accomplice. Its lightweight aluminum frame is full of cross-oriented touches like a shoulder-friendly top tube, internal cable routing to keep the muck out, and plenty of tire clearance. Up front, the FACT-carbon fork boasts a tapered steerer for precision handling, and it pairs nicely with the TRP Spyre disc brakes for confident, smooth braking. And for even more on/off-road versatility, the CruX is spec'd with light, smooth DT Swiss wheels, a smooth-shifting Shimano Tiagra drivetrain, and stiff FSA cranks.

my full suspension was too much to ride around with the wife. i did not want to ride my road bike either. this bike is the perfect middle! i love it. i do recommend a cyclocross to add to any bike inventory.
