bmw e30's review of Specialized Crossroad

“fantastic commuter bike!”

Written on: 27/10/2012 by bmw e30 (1 review written)

I haven't owned mine long, having bought it secondhand for just £80 on eBay I have spent about an hour greasing up the head bearings, lubing cables and adjusting the brakes. All very easy. This is going to be my winter hack, the saddle is very comfy, gears although basic shimano acera group function well. Riding position is very upright, I have a 54cm size frame which measures about 18.5 inches from centre of crank to top of top tube. Fits my 5'8 height perfectly. Forks are steel, black in colour with the frame being grey colour. With 700 size racing bike size wheels it rolls very good, and having solid forks every bit of effort pedalling is transferred into forward motion.

Bmw E30's Response to bmw e30's Review

Written on: 02/11/2012

UPDATE!
Have used this for commuting to work this week, 4 miles each way. Very impressed with bike, tho at 27lb its not the lightest bike, but it is very bombproof! Gears being acera? are basic yet function perfectly and reliably, brakes are powerful even with brake blocks 80% worn. Tires i have fitted are Crossroads 700c x 38, a general xcommuter tire, 80-100psi rating, i run at 85psi. Roll ok and very grippy with a 'wet' tread pattern as opposed to a more slick type tire.
Overall a great bike for very little money, should last many years. Not too bumpy even being a rigid setup, seat is soft and comfortable.
