Mine has a large scratch on the top tube which has been touched up (badly) with paint and another bigger chip from the head tube. The box also had a sticker on it to say that it was ex demo and noted the scratches. I emailed them to ask if it was an ex demo bike right enough and they agreed it was but pointed out the saving from list. They did say it could be returned for a refund but to be honest I can't quite be arsed as the bike is fit for what I intend to use it for. I'm just a bit annoyed as this wasn't stated anywhere when I bought it, yes it's a decent saving form list but I'm technically not buying a new bike (it's resale will suffer from the scratches) and I never pay list anyway. I'm going to keep it as I bought it as a winter bike so I will no doubt add to the scratches but I feel they have been quite misleading in their advert. Mine also has the black forks btw.


Thats really rubbish, they shouldve been honest and said in the description. I'd give them the hairdryer down the phone and ask for an extra discount.

I presume they were just trying to palm you off thinking that you wouldnt know anyone else who ordered them online. My bike came without reflectors and pedals as well, with the part box beat up.Id suggest if you arent fully happy with it, then to send it back. Its a great deal, but bang out of order that they did this without informing previously and telling you an outright lie.



Thanks for that, I was sceptical about what I was being told but now I know that they've been telling stories I think I'd rather take my business elsewhere. When I asked why there was no mention of the issue on the website, they said it was a problem with their web designer! I'll call them tomorrow and see what they have to say.

Spoke to the shop who said it was a problem with all of these discounted models which is why they were so cheap. Not sure whether to return it to be honest as it looks a bit odd!

Definitely not a fashion statement for me! just a bit concerned that if I don't take to road cycling, it may affect the price if I sell it. I take your point about having to pay more for a similar specified bike though.

Well the 2013 Sport has a new frame and it's 5 pounds lighter. It has different gears, tyres and a fork, it also comes with hydraulic brakes. From my viewpoint I think it looks better than the standard 2012 Crosstrail but that's personal opinion. Not to mention it's just newer.

If you're not used to using drop handlebars they can take some getting used to- the difference in your hand position and the different grip riding on the hoods means you might initially suffer from cramps in your hands. I know I did initially when coming from riding mountain bikes. I couldn't go back to using flat handle bars now though- couldn't give up using dual integrated levers ( the brake lever also changes the gears.) They are so much smoother than mountain bike shifters.

It's fast on the road and can also handle trails and a bit of mud, I used it along a very muddy canal path the other day. The only thing I changed on it were the tyres, I swapped them for Specialized Crossroads Armadillo Elite tyres to avoid punctures. However this hybrid seems more 'mountain bikeish' than what you're looking for so who knows.



well a bit of mountain bike characteristics would be useful for the occasional route through the bumpy paths in a park. The specialized does look pretty good also. Is there older models that sell for cheaper?
