Don't panic, I'm not going to try to flog it to you here.

I've taken my old Tricross out of the loft, swapped out some of the better components (for a trip of their own to eBay) and put a pair of flat bars on it. It's now the Tricross frame and fork, flat bars and the cheaper end of my parts stash, and I'm now hoping to sell it. So the question is . . .

What should I call it?

It has flat bars, 3x9 gearing, flat pedals, v-brakes and narrow 700c wheels with 23 section tyres. Is it a hybrid? Is it a "fitness" bike? What would you call it in a listing?

    Or a cockapoo or labradoodle as they now seem to be called.

    Are they the same wheels as on the Tricross Singlecross, that can fit at least a 700x40c at the rear and perhaps a fraction wider up front?

    Call it a flat bar adventure bike.;)

    Sounds like something to obtain a value for would be to weigh it ;-)
