Trek's CrossRip Elite is the one bike that truly does it all. This machine loves long rides on the road, cruising along dirt paths, commutes in the city and even down-n-dirty cross racing. Its light aluminum frame sports s carbon fork, making it lively, fast and ridiculously fun to ride. Shimano gives you a 27-speed drivetrain with triple cranks up front that are perfect for the steepest hills. And since you have fender and rack mounts as well, you'll have some gear-hauling capacity. The do-it-all nature continues. The Hayes disc brakes give you all-conditions stopping, so go ahead, commute all winter long and race in the sloppiest cross courses, you've covered. The tires are Bontrager Hard-Cases, so flats are pretty much a thing of the past, too.
Trek designer Gary Fisher has the know-how to make a great-riding bike, and he puts his knowledge to work on Trek's Ion CX Pro. It all starts with a light, yet stiff aluminum frame with a carbon fork leading the way that steers, corners and tracks with pinpoint precision and top-notch responsiveness. This is a versatile bike, too, ready to play in the mud at the cross races, commute everyday and do the mid-week hammerfest. It sports wide, 34c tires and has cleverly hidden fender mounts, making it truly utilitarian. Plus, you get a solid parts package with a SRAM Rival group, mud-clearing Avid cantilever brakes and Bontrager's Race tubeless-ready wheels and controls.
