Over the years I have kept an eye out for a local tidy Specialized Tricross Sport and until just before the lockdown I hadn’t found one at what I call a sensible price .
I thought to myself that will do and if not I can soon sell it on . Well after doing a couple of short rides around the block to see what it felt like I was duly impressed .
Once I started riding again I thought I might as well do some longer rides on it and up to date I have completed 197 miles on it and each mile has been a good one .
Normally it’s about this mileage I make my decision as to whether I decide to keep it or sell it.
And I am enjoying using this one so I have decided to extend that test period on the Tricross.
One of last weekends rides included a trip up to St Mary the Virgin Church that sits atop a hill overlooking the village of Whiston . The 3 X 9 gearing took all this in its stride. Normally I can only manage the path up to the church on my old Marin MTB.
Watch this space and see what I decide about this Tricross .
