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 a carbon fork, making it lively, fast and ridiculously fun to ride. Shimano gives you an 18-speed drivetrain with a wide range for help on the steepest hills. And since you have fender and rack mounts as well, foul weather riding and gear-hauling capacity is covered. 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 wheels are tubeless-ready and the tires are Bontrager Hard-Cases, so flats are pretty much a thing of the past, too.

I bought this to be a road bike in an area where road bikes aren't really possible because the roads are a mixture of dirt, gravel, or various stages of pavement at one time. This has been by far the best experience I have ever had on a bike! It is fast, light, responsive, can go almost anywhere, and is just a blast to ride!
I commute 30 miles each day, this bike has yet to show any weakness! A smooth ride each and every time. I would reccomend it to anyone for speed as well as reliability and durability.
