Comfy ride but terrible gears

Posted29 June 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable, Looks great
Cons: Poor quality, Heavy
I had this bike 10 days & had to return it twice to evans as the gears kept slipping in the higher range, the pedal jammed & the chain fell off! Evans did find part of the derailer was bent & perhaps this had happened during delivery but once this was sorted, I still had issues in high gear with crunching & pedal jamming. Evans have been really good & have let me return the bike in exchange for another. I have read really good reviews about this bike & although a bit heavy its a nice comfy ride position & looks nice. It does come with part road/off road tyres which are fine but if your just doing road riding & want to go faster then I recommend getting slicker tyres. I have seen 1 other review with very similar issues to mine, otherwise this bike seems to get the thumbs up & perhaps I was unlucky & just got a Friday afternoon factory job!

A very comfortable ride!!

Posted29 April 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
I wanted a bike with a smooth and comfortable ride. I can safely say you will definitely get this from the Specialized Crossroads Sport.
The grip handle bars and saddle are great and the upright riding position is a bonus for those who are requiring less pressure on their back when riding.
It feels and looks stable and being a novice bike rider, I feel confident on this bike especially it having thicker wheels, smooth gear changing and great stopping power when riding down the road and dirt tracks.
It also makes a very attractive bike with its great colour combo!
I have had no problems with the Specialized Crossroads Sport and will recommend this bike to a friend.
