    Trek Crossrip and Crossrip Elite Roll Call

    Hi everyone, I just picked up a 13 Trek CrossRip Elite and totally love it. It has opened up a found new joy in urban riding as well as the option to hit the local trails. Coming from MTB this bike just puts a smile on my face each time I ride it. Trying to unite others who have experienced the same thing so post them up and share your thoughts, opinions, reviews, upgrades etc. Here are a couple pics of mine.

    Mine's at the LBS waiting for a shorter stem. I wish they had the matte black frame for the Elite. I'm was also surprised at the jump between 50 to 54 cm frames with nothing in between. I cross shopped the Jamis Bosanova but no one had that thing in stock around me at all.

    Primarily going to use mine as a commuter.

    OK picked up the bike yesterday after a quick fitting. Rode it work this morning. Here it is before it's maiden voyage:
    Trek Crossrip and Crossrip Elite Roll Call-8704799456_7220347daa_b.jpg

    This thing ain't winning no weight contests, that for sure. And coming from Ultegra on my road bike, Sora feels clunky. But the bike is really comfortable. I'm sure the wider tires help a lot and I do look forward to riding different types of trail surfaces with this as opposed to just tarmac.

    (Edit: I know, the seat needs to point down a little bit and no I'm not removing the dork disk or reflectors, it's a commuter, damn it! )

    Congrats Josh on da new ride! =) Yea, was disappointed on the weight but for this being my first cross bike. I have no other complaints =) Def more of a commuter/trainer bike than a race bike for sure but each time I ride her it still puts a smile on my face because it is so comfortable to ride. Got 100 miles so far and just got some new tires for her. Purchased a set of Continental Grandprix 4 seasons 28c folding tires. Price was pretty expensive and did not get the satisfaction I was hoping for which was a 1.5+ mph on my rides but maybe I just need to break them in. What size did you get? Im 5'9 with an inseam of 30. According to others my frame size should be a 52-54 cm but I picked up a 56cm since it was $200 dollars off and it was the only size they had. Surprisingly, it fits and feels smaller than my 17.5 29er. I do feel a little stretched out when riding but I'm sure a quick swap on the stem to a 70 from 90 would do the trick. Otherwise, I have not other complaints on the sizing.

    I got a 54cm. Apparently 50cm was sold out everywhere. I had them put a shorter stem on it which helped out a lot. I'm 5'8" so I had to lower the seat a bit too. Funny you ride a 17.5 29er. I actually probably should have gone with that but they fit me on a 19.5 2011 Trek X-Caliber. It is a little big but I've been riding it for 2 years with no problems. I think I might actually swap the original stem from the Crossrip on it to see how that feels.

    It is heavy but the gearing makes up for it. I guess it's entry level AL and entry level wheels so it's not totally surprising. I had to re-adjust the front derailleur and while it still rubs slightly, it's much better than when I first got it.

    Why did you go with the road tires? I'm actually planning on putting some 700c x 32 small block 8 tires I have lying around. The wide tires are super comfortable. I rode down a freshly milled road on the way home and actually very tolerable.

    heheh that's funny =) I say as long as it feels right forget what numbers say and others opinions because they are not the ones riding the bike. I went with road tires because I spend most of my time on the Rip on open roads and barely hit the dirt since I take my 29er in the mountains. I am faster but not as fast as I think I would be especially dropping $100 on the tires. I am now thinking about Semi Slicks such as the Sammy Slick or Kenda Happy Mediums in 32c. I already got a pinch flat lol. Was looking at the Stans 340 disc wheelset and perhaps upgrading to 105's 10 speed drive train in the future but we will see. Happy Friday and RIDE ON!

    Heavy duty version of Crossrip: fenders and Schwalbe Marathon Winter

    Trek Crossrip and Crossrip Elite Roll Call-fiets_sneeuw_011.jpg

    In the meantime the fenders and the spike tyres are stored away.

    Can anybody recommend decent stable fenders? The Trek Bontrager Approved model is really not solid.

    Ps: do not try this at home. My Ultegra rear derailleur suffered from rust.

    I have Planet Bike Hybrid Hardcore fenders on mine. I had to get creative with the front left attachment because of the brake calipers but it's been fine with some zipties to the eyelet.

    Thanks joshhan. I am using Plant Bike fenders on my MTB. However the purchase was rather painfull: 35 USD for the fenders + 35 USD for the shipment. And as a nice surprise: extra 30 USD customs at delivery in Belgium

    Great pics everyone! So just curious how many miles have you logged so far? According to Strava I got about 168 miles for a little over a month. =) Still loving it!

    Love the crossrip, completely confused

    Hello everyone! Help a noob please, I'm desperate.

    I am looking at a new bike (complete newbie) and I really like the Trek Crossrip Elite. I test rode a 54 today and it felt good but the drop handlebars are very alien to me (very uncomfortable) and my back definitely was sore from such an acute angle lean. I wanted to try a 56 but they don't have it in stock (they can order it but I have to agree to buy it first). I test rode a different model 56 and the angle was better for my back (but other than that, I felt no real difference, but I don't know what difference I'm even looking for).

    But then the salesman said that he could adjust the 54 by changing the stem and adjusting the seat. So my question is, what things can I actually observe, note, feel, to know which bike size fits me best? And is it normal to sit on the seat of the bike and be on your tippy-toes with the ground? I prefer flat footed but I am inexperienced with such a bike, maybe this is normal? (I'm 6'0" 31 inseam).

    For your size I would suggest the 58, the 54 is waaaay too small for you. Have your bike shop measure you and get you fitted if you're going to have it ordered. Also check out this site for pointers on sizing. Articles about Bicycle Frames and Fitting

    Best of luck to you!

    I got mine back in mid-April and replaced all the drivetrain components with Shimano Ultegra 3x10s from an older Trek Madone that I had. It helped on the weight a little bit. The community I live in has over 100 miles of paved multiuse paths that criss-cross the city in every which direction. I ride about 20-30 miles a day, four days a week with about 75% of that on the open road and the rest on the paved paths. I've put well over 1000 miles on it so far and the only real complaint I have is that I already need to replace the tires on it. Of my seven bikes, this one gets the most use.

    Quick question, I have my stock wheelset from my 2011 Trek X-Caliber with some 32mm Kenda Small Block 8s currently installed on them. Think they would be an upgrade to the stock wheelset on the CrossRip? The CrossRip wheels weren't even branded IIRC while the X-Caliber wheels are at least Deore hubs and Bontrager SSR rims.

    Cross Rip

    I got my Cross Rip on 5/28 and love it. I'm pushing 400 miles on it so far.
    I live along a rails to trail path that is mostly gravel with some paved spots. I'm on a mission to loose some weight and its going well so far. Down 30#s in 3 months. My new bike is helping with that a lot.

    Trek Crossrip and Crossrip Elite Roll Call-photo.jpg

    I was looking for a bike I could put in 40 mile rides on. I have't hit that number yet but I've got a few 32 mile rides in.

    I have to try lowering my tire pressure a bit. Sometimes the front wheel will was out on the gravel in a turn. Aside from that I love this bike.

    The Perk trail! Nice, I'm in Lansdale and ride that every once in a while. It's great exercise. Keep up the riding and you'll find yourself riding the Perk trail into the SRT and back for some serious miles!

    I know the gravelly spots you're talking about and it's not necessarily going to get better with lower pressure. Deep pockets of gravel are tough to turn on with fat mountain bike tires too.

    Maybe a fat bike would be ok.

    If I can keep my new routine going through the fall, I've promised myself a fat bike.

    I've ridden a Salsa Mukluk a few times in some snow. It amazing what they can handle.

    Happy Trekking!
    Thanks for making this post---
    Rode my friends road bike a few times and could not get into the drop bars and angle of it-- it's the correct size and stem for me. But don't like the aggressive frame.

    6'2 235lbs. Primarily a mtn biker but looking at a more relaxed top tube for all around road bike- cross bike - rails to trails bike - inclement weather- all around bike ???

    Lbs has trek crossrip - bmc grand fondo w/ disc and also felt f65x. The felt has ill more aggressive frame than grand fondo & crossrip.

    Want to get into road riding -fire roads/ rails to trails / long road rides to train for mtn and lose weight.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    I just picked up a crossrip 2013 and sold my 29er. I am mainly a roadie but I like to hit the trails. I live in PA and like to use that trails usually weekly for a change of pace. Jeff

    Finally got around to moving around the rotors and cassette to my stock X-Caliber wheelset.

    I should have weighed the actual difference between the weights but it seemed pretty substantial.

    Picked up a little bit more speed this morning on my commute but that could have been due to the cooler weather.

    Bottom line: The stock wheelset and tires are definitely a weak spot for this bike.

    I did 55 miles the other day on my cross rip. Love that bike.
    I do wish I would have got the elite now. I've come accept the fact that I don't need a triple chainring set up now.

    Trek Crossrip and Crossrip Elite Roll Call

    Picked mine up last week, I've got a lot of getting used to it to do as I've never ridden anything remotely road bikey or a cyclocross bike, but I'm hoping that I'll start jelling with it and setting some PR's on it soon.

    Sweet bikes everybody. Keep the pics coming.

    Really liked this bike and almost pulled the trigger, but went with a Surly Cross Check instead, as I wanted the steel frame to do a bit of bike touring. Quick note, somebody mentioned the Schwalbe Marathon Supreme tires and I wanted to second that. The tires are a bit heavy, but are literally indestructable and I havent gotten a flat tire in 400 miles. I also saw the Brooks saddle up there, anybody use these? Was looking into getting a new Saddle on my cross bike, but wanted some more input.

    Enjoy the rides everybody, the CrossRip looks like a really fun and versatile bike.

    As you know saddles are different for everyone but so far so good for me. I got the Brooks B17 standard. Bought it new and have a little over 600 miles on it (and the bike) so far. The longest I've been on it on one ride was about 40 and it was still comfortable while wearing regular old khaki shorts. Plus it lends a distinctive color to the bike.

    Greetings Fellow CrossRip riders.

    Hello from Sunny Singapore. Just got my CrossRip 3 weeks ago and am loving it.
    Took part in Strava's August challenge and have ridden 350km (or approx 217 miles) on it already.

    Weighed the bike in at 11kg (or 24 pounds). I used to ride a hardtail MTB before venturing into CX bikes. I really wanted a road frame with drop bars and disc brakes so the weight isnt an issue for me.

    I've gone with a red and black scheme for the bike, even putting a rack at the back on it. I'm standing at 5ft 9.5" and got the size 56 frame with 90mm stem.

    It's such a versatile bike, making me go from roads to pavements to gravel with ease. Absolutely loving it as a commuter, racer and trail bike. Like what Trek says, What can't this bike do?

    Let me preface this post by saying that I am new to both this forum and bikes that are less than 20 years old. So please forgive my noob post. I just ordered a '14 Crossrip Elite as an upgrade to my '92 Hard Rock w/slicks and I am stoked to have a new daily commuter. Coincidentally, my [frame] pump, a dinky little old topeak is on its last legs. I am looking to get a real frame pump soon and would like some input. Despite my aesthetic tendencies, I know that I will not find a slate-blue pump to match the new color , so it all comes down to functionality. I will be getting a 54cm. Any suggestions about the longest pump that will fit vertically in the frame?

    thx bro, I use the gopro 3 black edition. I filmed in 720 cause I only had 4gig memory card that day. going to do it again now i have a 64gig card. the front bag i use works great for holding house keys and gel. heres the link, click on "more views" under the pic and you'll see i have the smaller one strap one. they have other sizes n such. Bontrager Speed Box - Frame - Bags - Accessories -Trek Store
    For bluetooth I have a JBL charge in the bottle cage. works great and has a usb to charge your portables. I can run a usb to my gopro when i have it mounted under the handlebars and the JBL charge will extend it's batter life by a huge factor (just make sure you have the skeleton gopro cage. the one it comes with is enclosed)

    I like my Crossrip Elite but the brakes are nearly worthless. I'm wondering if they got some lube on them-I can't even lock up the back. My wife's V-brakes are much more powerful. Any thoughts?

    Trek Crossrip and Crossrip Elite Roll Call

    Yup mine are the same, I can rarely lock them up but rarely need to either. 1000 miles coming up on mine now and I've got to say that I love the bike much more than I ever thought I would.

    Really love the look of these. I was looking at one, and eventually went with a Surly Cross-Check, but still considering this if I ever want to switch things up. It's definitely a lot lighter, and looks like a great commuter. Had to have a bike for touring so the Cross-Check fit my needs a bit better.

    Awesome bikes everybody... Love the red tape and pedals too!

    You are right, there's no need to lock them up. Just a little surprising. Was bombing down gravel yesterday and came on patches of snow and ice. Was PLEASED they didn't lock up then!

    My bling-tastic Crossrip LTD

    The finish is a lot more reflective than I expected. I was stoked that the red Candy 2 pedals matched the hubs.

    Wait... What did you do to the finish? Strip and reapply the decals?

    Crossrip Elite

    Just picked up my trek cross trip elite. The only thing that I have changed is the seat to a Forté Pro XFR Saddle and traded out the stock peddles for Shimano PD-M520 SPD MTB Pedals. I feel better being clipped in..

    I picked up a Crossrip Comp after talking to the guy at the bikeshop for awhile last Fall. I am pretty new to the riding scene other then riding bike when I was a kid. The plan is to do a lot of bike riding with the family around town and on the paved bike trail in town. I am also going to do 2 of the 7 days of Ragbrai(Big Ride across the state of Iowa) this year and if I handle that fine, Look at doing the entire week ride next year. I currently live 12 miles from work, so wanting to start commuting via bike a few days for the fresh air and exercise this summer. I do want to get a GPS to mount on my bike to log miles and stuff so am open to recommendations there. Otherwise going to start riding it stock and go from there on what I might want to upgrade. I want to get a trainer for the winter months as we have some pretty harsh winters here(This winter we had a lot of -20 to -50 temps with 50mph winds, so not looking to ride outdoors do much in the winter but want to keep up indoors. I haven't ridden my Crossrip other than around the block when I got it as weather was already setting in for the winter, so really excited to get it out as everything is melting and temps are hitting 40 here now! Will post some updates after I get to get out and ride it for a bit.

    Congrats, I've been using mine to commute too. But my commute is only a little over 5 miles each way. Although it's been my primary ride these days with all the snow melting everywhere. It's all fendered up.

    For tracking rides, just use your phone with an app (endomondo, strava, mapmyride, etc) until you feel the need for a dedicated unit for longer rides. Garmin units are good for that.

    Enjoy your CrossRip, I also use mine for commuting, 10 miles each way to work, I've put about 1600 miles on mine since August and have just taken the fenders off mine as the weather is turning now. I love my CR, it surprises me just how fast it is and I like to log my miles on a Garmin Edge 800.

    The GPS that I use is Edge® 200. It's good for what it does. It Tracks time, distance, speed and GPS position. If that's what your looking for check it out.

    I took your advice and checked out a bunch of apps. Settled on endomondo for now and even opted for the premium version for the couple extra features. I do like that it will log and save my routes and pace info, and that I can post it all to my Facebook. Useful for tracking my training and progress as I am just starting out. My battery has a real good life on my Note 3 and I ordered a couple extra batteries for Ragbrai and a good solid mount to put it on my bike. Otherwise I just stick it in my pocket and it works fine. It talks and gives mile info. thanks for the welcome and advice everyone!

    If you are on android, Ridewithgps.com has an app out now. And I love their website! IMO 100x easier and better than mapmyride. I also can't remember what it was called. Maybe wahoo or something. Looks like a normal bike computer size for the handle bar but is just displaying your info from the phone in your pocket.

    As for the Crossfit. It is the best looking ride all winter bike I've seen.

    I really don't want to mess with hydraulic brakes. My Hayes on my 2005 Giant cypress works awesome.

    So on the Crossfit. My question, is it better to just buy the Crossfit Elite and ride as is. Or buy the LTD and then change the brakes to mechanical?

    I love 105, is the Sora that much worse?

    Anyone have a weight difference between the Ltd and elite model?

    Trek Crossrip and Crossrip Elite Roll Call-trekcrossripmod2.jpgHere's my modified 2014 CrossRip Elite. I picked her up Wednesday and prompyly stripped her down that night. I swapped the Sora drivetrain with Ultegra 6700 10 speed drivetrain. I also added FSA carbon seatpost, Fizik Arrione saddle, Salsa Cowbell bars and Lizard Skin DSP bar tape. Took her out for maiden voyage(30 mile ride) today and she was everything I hoped for. The fit is really good for my 6'4" frame.

    This is a 61cm frame and the weight is now a tad over 23 lbs (stock version a tad over 25 lbs.) Looking forward to my commutes to work on this baby!

    Hello Guys,
    I am looking for a bike to make a long trip in Europe, and until know the most I liked ihas been the crossrip with his handlebars more like a race bike than a mtb. I have only a doubt: how many lbs./kg can carry the bike as baggages ?
    Thanks

    CrossRip Elite by the harbour

    Hi All,

    Thought I might add a picture of my pride and joy three quarters of the way through her morning commute:

    Trek Crossrip and Crossrip Elite Roll Call-crossrip-elite-harbour.jpg

    I noticed someone say they had to attach their fenders with cable ties, presumably to avoid the front disk brake. If you're not using the left fork mount, you can shorten the stays and run them to that instead as shown in the pic. Neater and probably more secure.

    Cheers,

    My CrossRip easily carries 8kg in the rear panniers without the ride being affected. If I was going to carry much more though, I'd be adding front panniers to balance it out a little. Tyres are 32s on rims with plenty of spokes so I don't think durability would be an issue.

    I think that was me. Actually the other day I caught a twig and it snapped the cable tie so I had to carry the front fender home in my saddlebag. Might have been all in my head but I seemed to go faster without the front fender attached.

    I thought I saw some extenders you could screw on the front eyelet that would extend it out past the brake caliper but I can't seem to find them anywhere. I'll see if the fork mount will support the fender attachment.

    Thanks!

    I'm not planning on using my Crossrip as a commuter, so I'll be looking for fenders that clip on and off easily. Has anyone have any recommendations? Also thinking I might need to go with wider tires. Assume at least 35mm will fit on the rims.

    I'm running the Bontrager CXO in 38mm and they fit fine. You're apparently able to run up to 1.8" 29er tyres but I've not tried them yet.

    I love these though:

    Thanks for the info. Might look at the LT line. Most times the trails are hard compacted surface, but then goes to dirt and gravel. With my old road bike I would stop when the trail change to dirt & gravel. I still didn't even get to test the existing tires yet. Hopfully tomorrow I'll get a chance

    My fenders came with neat, carved-from-a-single-block-of-aluminium extenders (one shown in pic below with pen for scale) but they weren't long enough to clear the brake housing :-( , hence the fork mount. Hope it works out on your machine.

    I've read a lot about the entry level crossrip (which I have) has weak derailers on it. Does anyone know how long I could expect them to function? I'm new at riding and I don't really feel a need to change them out. Maybe because I've never ridden anything else. Seems fine to me.

    My 2014 Crossrip Elite has Shimano Sora gear, and I haven't had any issues with it in over a thousand kilometres of commuting this year. Compared to the 2013 Shimano 105 setup on my fair weather bike, I'd say the Sora requires more frequent adjustment to keep it changing smoothly, but there's no sign of anything breaking or wearing away.

    I've just collected my CrossRip Elite from my LBS after they replaced the cassette, chain and BB (not bad considering I've covered over 1600 miles on it since August I don't think?) they told me that the hanger had been bent. I was a little surprised as I've never crashed (touch wood!) the bike, but maybe it happened when it once fell over or something? Anyway, they simply bent it back into place and the gears are now running perfectly, thank fully.

    Any chance someone has a frame weight for the Crossrip (disc)?

    I have a lot of lightweight parts and wheels already, and I'm trying to decide between a crockett or a crossrip. If I felt like the crossrip frame gave up only .5lbs or so the crockett, and had similar ride quality, I'd be tempted. I like the fact that crossrip has rack mounts, whereas the crockett only has fender mounts. I want commuting utility and occasional cross race or even group road ride (with 25mm tires).

    My Crossrip LTD at Erwin Park

    I put some wider tires on my Crossrip LTD and took it to the nearest MTB trail. It performed flawlessly. I had to avoid some of the more technical parts of the trail, since I didn't want to get thrown over my handlebars into a tree. I can't wait to go back.

    Took my Crossrip out and the tires were fine on the trail. Maybe for my next set I'll try next size up (35mm). Now having an issue with fit of bike. Got left outer side knee pain after first ride. Got a bike fit and went back out and the pain is still there. Going back to fitter and hope we can get it resolved.

    I'm still having fit issues with my Crossrip. Next up I'll be swapping out stock saddle for a Specialized Romin Evo Expert. I think stock saddle is too narrow for me and I'm getting left side outer knee pain after 15 - 20 miles.

    I had trouble getting the bike fit right too. Still feel like it could be better. The size is a bit awkward after having had a Madone. I was having knee pain as well but it was related to my cleat positioning. I do not like the stock saddle at all and will change it out in the future (hopefully soon)!

    It also was a big change for me, going from an old Fuji road bike to the Crossrip. I'm using the same shoes/cleats/petals from my road bike on the Crossrip. I know it still can be an issue with them, but I'm hoping its related to the saddle. I noticed that my road bike saddle is wider as compared to the one on the Crossrip.

    I swapped out the allen key skewers on my LTD and went with 105 quick releases. Just wanted to check in to see if anyone else has done the same or if there's a reason I shouldn't? My LBS told me Trek went with allen key to reduce disc brake thefts, and there's not mechanical reason to avoid quick release skewers.

    Trek Crossrip and Crossrip Elite Roll Call

    Took my xrip out for a 42 mile run yesterday but I just couldn't stay away from the off road stuff so decided to do some gravel grinding.

    Thank you! Yeah that's right it's the Better bike bell and does a good job at warning walkers etc on my commute to work!

    I think by removing the suicide levers the braking performance did improve a little bit, also makes the bike look a bit better in my opinion.

    In using the Bontrager CX0 tyres in 38mm, I swapped the standard tyres out at about 900 miles and these seem like much better all rounders as well as being much lighter.

    No problem, I'm really impressed with them, they seem to be wearing really well at 800 miles and they roll awesomely too.

    Sorry more questions! Are you running them tubeless or with tubes (I haven't ventured to tubeless yet and hope to stick with tubes for the time being)? I assume the stock wheels can handle the 38 size no problem? What pressure do you run them at?

    I run them tubed at the moment although last week I experimented by trying to use a tubeless kit I had in my spares box, the experiment was unsuccessful unfortunately. I think I'd need a different wheelset in order to go tubeless but it's something I'm considering as I'm averaging one flat a week at the moment.

    The stock wheels work fine with the 38's and apparently you can run up to 1.8" 29er tyres on them too.

    I tend to run between 45 and 50 psi.

    Hope that helps but let me know if you have anymore questions.

    Oh that's good to know. I'm new to this... 29 and 700 are the same, right? So does that mean I can run tires up to 45 mm ? For example I had been looking at the Rock n' Road 700x43 or the Clement X'Plor MSO 700x40, but figured they were going to be too wide for my wheels and the Crossrip's clearances.

    I've not tried any other tyres on mine but yeah narrow 29" tyres will fit the rims fine. I don't think you'd need anything wider than 38 though, I'm personally going to try 32mm cx3's next time just to see what works best for me.

    Thanks for the advice! I'm gonna try the 40mm MSO just for kicks, not sure if I have the clearance but I'll see. If not, I'll step down to the 38mm CX0

    Don't forget x'plor MSO comes in a 32 also. The USH is a 35.

    I sold my Hybrid, so just dropped the 40 MSO on my 29er tonight. No mileage to report on them, yet. They look awesome mounted though. They will hopefully get me A To B better. Yet they will still give me that robust off-road.

    I still need to replace my hybrid come fall. So still looking at this crossrip, along with Giants revolt. Or All-City nature boy disc SS. Not sure which way I want to go.

    I ended up getting the Specialized Romin Comp Gel saddle. It helped on a 30 mile ride but I still had some left outer knee pain. Next up i'm going to swap out the Shimano A530 pedals for Speedplay Frogs. Hope the free float of the frogs help with my knee pain.

    I've test rode Crossrip Comp and it felt ok for a bike you would use for kind of riding that will not get you sweating like going to cruise in the city and so on, but it felt a bit sluggish and kinda slow. It felt that it's no a bike I can go fast on either on-road or off-road. Even my rigid mtb with 26x1.75" wheels feels faster and more sportslike on-road than Crossrip.

    Has anyone test rode both Crossrip and Crockett? How does the Crockett compare to Crossrip?

    That pic looks like the D&R Canal along PA/NJ area. I just got the A530 pedals, haven't put them on yet. Hopefully won't have the knee pain you're experiencing. I may swap out the stock saddle for a Brooks once I have the cash to spend

    Yeah I think the Crossrip makes for a good "hybrid". I'm happy with it. I ordered the USH 35mm to try them out for my daily commute. I want the widest possible for off-road dirt/gravel riding fun, so I also ordered the MSO 40mm just to see if I have the clearance. I doubt it when I look at the bike, so if that's the case they'll go back and I'll get the CXO 38mm instead.

    Yes that is the D&R Canal. One of the reasons I got the crossrip is so I can ride longer on it. The A530 pedals were fine on my road bike that I used last year. I probably could of kept them and just did some more adjustments on them. But I wanted to go full clipless and also have some more float.

    I just picked up a Trek CrossRip Comp this morning. It's great, just went for a quick ride so far.
