SOLD: My Very First Bike – Specialized Tricross Disc Elite 2012 Size Medium 54cm

So it’s about time for us to part, she’s not been ridden for quite a while and has just been taking up space in the shed – so it’s time.


I got her in October before I did my LeJogLe ride and I received my Raleigh in April, so she was only ridden for those 6 months – and to be honest, I barely rode her during Jan and Feb!

Front Shifter


She rides very nicely, able to cope with any road surface and with those sturdy tyres she is able to cope with surfaces that you wouldn’t find on any roads. Her longest ride was 170 miles (Nottingham – Manchester – Nottingham <over the Peak District twice>) and she handled it with ease!
Front disc


From Feb till the end of March she was purely on the rollers so she really didn’t see the outdoors very much at all!

Head on

In a good condition as you would expect of a bike thats done so little, the only real thing thats been done is a saddle swap and a new set of pads (is that what they are called?) for the disc brakes – everything has been running super smoothly!

She cost £1,200 so I think with the amount of use she has had £600 + delivery is a fair price.

I’m in Nottingham, if you want to pick her up, a 25% deposit secures her.

Rear Mech and stays

Tricross Elite Disc 2012 Cyclo Cross Bike is the perfect do-it-all bike for anything from trails to commuting to touring, with rack/mudguard mounts and secondary brake levers. Disc brakes for all-weather control, plus reliable 10-speed Shimano Tiagra components.


Lightweight A1 Premium Aluminium double butted frame with freeroad geometry is disc-compatible and features internal cable routing for low maintenance performance in any conditions. Lightweight alloy fork is ultra-durable and disc-ready, while the lowrider rack and mudguard mounts allow you to keep the water off and the load well-balanced. This disc-specific alloy wheelset is built for wider tyres assuring a solid tyre stance for rough roads or off-road. Specialized Borough CX tyres with Armadillo Elite protection have a wide and smooth centre section that rolls fast on paved or dirt roads and side knobs for off-road use. Adjustable 4-position oversized alloy stem with 31.8mm bar clamp for strength and versatile positioning. New H2 Ergo alloy bar offers serious performance and ergonomic positioning. New Tricross secondary brake levers provide convenient, safe braking without moving hands to the drops plus integrated bell mount. New 10-speed Shimano Tiagra STI shifters are smooth and precise, offering reliable performance and great value.
