Hi again. Im awaiting delivery of my first new bike.i chose a hybrid (specialized crosstrail sport disc) rather than a mtb as im doing mostly cycle paths with the odd hard packed gentle off road stuff.Having got an excellent deal on the bike i will have around £140 for anything thats a known weak spot etc.does anyone know of anything on these bikes? Heres the spec details.thanks in advance for any info.
