2012 Specialized Crossroads Sport

Swing a leg over Specialized's Crossroads Sport and enjoy outings filled with comfort and fun. It sports a light aluminum frame and an upright position for ultra-relaxed pedaling, while the efficient 700c wheels and suspension fork smooth out the ride even more. Plus, you'll appreciate the wide-range 21-speed Shimano drivetrain and the confidence-inspiring linear-pull brakes. The Crossroads also boasts other fine touches like flat-resistant tires, Body Geometry grips and an incredibly comfortable seat, too.

      Really comfortable. Nice upright riding position. A pleasure to ride. Love pretty much everything about it. Blue-green color really nice-looking too. One teeny little flaw. The display that shows what gear I'm in can be hard to read. It has a clear reflective cover that in some lights can be hard to see through. Not a great bit of design. But other than that this is a terrific bike for a recreational rider!

        My wife and I both got one of these bikes about a month ago to ride on the rail trail. Tested a few bikes over at [...], which was a plus. Now I'm not a cyclist, just turned 50 want to get some exercise and enjoy the outside. Found the bike to be built solid (I"m almost 300lbs), rides smoothly and I'm quite happy with it. Have done a lot of miles on the trail and the wife and I are really enjoying the Crossroads .. No five stars because I think the price point could be better .. but hey I think all bikes should cost 50 dollars. It's a good bike and I would recommend it to a friend.

            I've had this bike for about 5 days now, and I really like it a lot! The only reason I gave this bike 4 out of 5 stars is because before I bought this one, I test rode a different bike and it was an amazing ride, but out of my price range. I ride mainly for exercise, but also for recreation as well. I wanted a hybrid for the added durability because I ride in many different locations and I never know what I'll be riding into. This bike has definitely met my expectations, is a quality product, and has a very reasonable price for what you get.

              I use this bike for commuting and for casual biking on the weekends. It is a well built bike with good gear selection to get up hills. Is is quite comfortable. The tires that come with it, (Specialized Hemisphere) are another story. To put it simply they are no good, and have in my opinion a poor tread design. I have had 5 flats in 2 months driving on city streets and bike trails. I replaced both tires with the Specialized Armadillo Crossroads tire and have not had a flat in 6 months.

              My husband I have been riding 10 years logging 500-1000 miles depending if we were still working and lived in the midwest with winters and no hills or in northern CA with many hills. We have had several Trek comfort bikes until last year. In CA, I almost gave up riding because I couldn't conquer most hills. With this bike I am up the hills! I am 66, 4'11", over 200# and the seat is very comfortable! I no longer need my old tractor seat! I went into the store to buy a 22 pound bike for several hundred dollars more, but this bike is a lot of bike for the money!!

                Three months ago, after retirement at age 65, I bought the Crossroads Elite for myself. This is the first time I had ridden a bike in 30+ years. I really like the bike and ride it in the nearby parks, both hilly and flat. I ride about 4 hours a week and the Crossroads is a great ride for my tender back. After having tested my bike (many times) my wife bought herself a Crossroads Sport for herself. We are really happy with the bikes.

                  I hadn't been on a bike in 30 years when I bought this one. After about 2.5 months I'm doing an average of 30 miles a week riding 5-6 days a week, and working up to much more. I've got 300 miles on it now and have no complaints. Shifts great both up and down. I don't know of a thing that I would change. I would buy this again if I had it to do over.

                      I am a 50 year old woman. I bought the bike to get in shape and to keep keep my gas costs down. I have only had my bike for 2 weeks but have fallen in love with it already. It shifts easily, pedals nice, and is easy to control. My only con, and one of the factors (In fact my primary factor)was seat comfort. I thought the wide seat would be more comfortable. Even after putting a gel pad over the seat, my bottom still needs a rest every couple of miles or so. maybe I was asking too much. Otherwise, I love the bike !
