Crossroads Elite
Overview

Reviews
Lighter weight and wider gearing make the Crossroads Elite more responsive and versatile, while its Armadillo tires help ensure you won't be slowed by a flat.
  • Shimano Acera 8-speed rear derailleur provides sure-fire shifts every time
  • 63mm-travel suspension fork with preload adjustment creates a smoother, more comfortable ride
  • Aluminum riserbar creates a stable and comfortable position, while BG Comfort grips keep hands feeling fresh
  • Double-walled, stainless, eyeletted 700c rims are durable and low maintenance, with machined sidewalls for consistent braking
  • A1 Premium Aluminum 700c frame with hybrid geometry for an upright, stable riding position and low standover for bike path bliss
  • Comfort Plus saddle uses springs and a wide platform for over-the-top comfort, while a suspension seatpost takes the edge of bumpy roads
  • Smooth-rolling Hemisphere 700c tires use Armadillo protection to eliminate flats and a semi-connected tread pattern for traction and control on pavement or gravel
