It's right for you if...
You want a single, ridiculously versatile bike that's fast on city streets, stable on rough terrain, and fully capable of everything from fast rides to the office to extended tours. You're willing to spend a little bit more for a major upgrade on the parts that make the biggest difference in performance.
The tech you get
A lightweight 200 Series Alpha Aluminum frame with a stable all-road geometry and massive tire clearance, a carbon fork, 10-speed Shimano Tiagra drivetrain, TRP mechanical disc brakes with bar-mounted Tektro levers, Tubeless Ready rims, extra mounts so you can add accessories like a rack and fenders, a Blendr stem, and a Bontrager Race Lite IsoZone bar that reduces fatiguing road vibrations.
The final word
CrossRip 2 rides like a road bike, but is capable enough to take you from your morning commute to an evening gravel adventure, and it's an awesome option for towing your little one around in trailer. A lightweight frame, carbon fork, and extra mounts for accessories make CrossRip 2 a utilitarian workhouse that rides like a race horse.
