This is a versatile light touring bike. This bike is a very good introduction to good quality bicycles. Here are the details:
• From Trek’s promotional literature: Workday commute to weekend adventure. The drop-bar CrossRip is surefooted when roads get rough, quick in traffic, and comfortable over the long haul. Commuter? Gravel grinder? Cafe racer? CrossRip pairs the efficiency of a road bike with the go-anywhere durability of something more. It's the one bike that takes you from your workday commute right into your weekend adventure
• Aluminum frame. Carbon fork. Some internal cable routing.
• Tiagra groupset with 2 chain rings 50-34 amd 10 sprockets 11-34 on the cassette for a fairly good range of gears and fairly crisp shifting
• Disc brakes with TRP HyRd brakes. These are cable-actuated hydraulic disc brakes. These brakes modulate well, have lots of stopping power, and are not seriously affected by rain or dirt. Essentially no maintenance. I don’t recall if I’ve replaced the brake pads. The rotors are original.
• Compass (now Rene Herse) Bon Jon Pass 700Cx35 tires. I run them with tubes. The rims are supposed to be tubeless ready. I don’t know if the tires are tubeless compatible. Good wear left on the tires. One tire had one small puncture from a piece of glass on Westchester Trail, but there is no other damage. Also will provide the original Bontrager 700Cx32 tires that came with the bike, which have some wear, and probably will provide a couple of spare inner tubes.
• Both front and rear dropouts have attachment points for both fenders and racks.
• Size 58 cm. I am 6’2” and it fits me well. You can adjust the fit some with a different stem length or angle or a steerer tube extension, and shifting the saddle fore or aft.
• Some cosmetic scratches and minor wear, but it has never been in a major crash and doesn’t have significant damage or wear. I have maintained the bike over the years, including replacing chains and brake and derailleur cables and housing.
• Color: dark grey
• Original price was around $1,600. The current Trek bike that looks most comparable is the Trek Domane AL 4 Gen 4, which currently retails for $1,700.
• Optional: When I go on bike trips Outside, I install fenders so that a rainy day won’t spoil the ride. They are not currently installed. For an additional $25 I’ll include the fenders.
