I bought the Crux frameset while I was at VeloNews. I wanted a disc brake bike to test certain products and the Specialized was a great value. It has seen the rounds. I've done cross races on it, gravel races, lots of winter miles. Kristen raced it for a couple seasons. Recently I got it back after KP got a new cross bike. This build is one of my favorites to grace the frame. It's nice, functional and reliable. As pictured, the bike is accessorized for the Land Run 100 in early March. I have some travels before I go there and I like to have my bikes dialed before toeing a start line. So far so good!
