    Black/stealth cyclocross bikes

    Specialed Tricross was my dream bike, but I wasn't able to buy it since it was not sold in any European country last year. I waited to see if they start selling 2014 model in Europe and they did, but they changed the desing and now it looks like an ugly e-bike.

    What similar bikes are there? Trek Crossrip is pretty close, but I hate neon green and last years model which were colored red is obviously sold out.

    Yes I'm picky I know.

    how about a Raleigh? They make some very nice cross bikes and they are available in Europe. Good luck on the search.

    I thought about it but didn't find good and cheap enough frame when I searched (bike can cost up to 1500). Not big fan of carbon for this bike since I plan to use this for few trips in other countries too. This is more of a fast all around bike.

    That's one on those " Chinese Carbon" frames right? What's your thoughts? I've looked at those myself, thinking about getting one.

    The Ventana El Martillo CX is available in Carbon Black.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    Kind Of Stealthy...

    Matte Black paint job, my LBS just built this frame up for me on Friday.
    Yes, the Specialized logo is a bit loud though...
