Specialized Tricross Sport Frameset

Includes frame, carbon FACT forks, Cane Creek headset and spacers, Specialized seat-clamp and headset topcap. 

I am selling as I never got on with the sizing and I've changed to another road bike. 

As a result of it never fitting me perfectly I've hardly ridden it and this shows in the condition. If I advertised it as unused with just some storage marks you'd believe me - it is in near perfect condition with only a couple of very minor marks. 
No dents, no chainsuck, no cable rub (I protected it from day one). I did use the mudguard mounts so there is some paint missing where the bolts are but it's very very minimal. This will be indistinguishable from a new bike once built. Not even any marks around the BB!!

Lovely ride unlike some cyclocross frame which can be very rigid, the carbon forks really help this. Space for 37c tyres front and back, mounts for mudguards and racks (including lowrider on the front!). Cantilever mounts front and back. 

Ace for day rides, touring, commuting, cyclocross, pretty much anything. 

I put some Respro black reflective tape on the black sections - you can't see it normally but under car headlights its really bright.  Some of the photos have been taken with a flash to show this off. No bright yellow bits!!

Size 52cm
ST  C-T 520mm
TT Horizontal 530mm
BB Drop 71mm
Chain-Stay 440mm
Seat-Tube Angle 74.5°
HT angle  70.75°
Fork Rake 49mm
Trail 70mm
Front-Center 597mm
Wheelbase 1027mm
Stand-Over 770mm
Head-Tube 125mm

Pricing this has been hard as I've not  seen another frame and forks for sale on it's own. Some similar framesets would cost about £400 to £450. A LOT lighter than a Genesis at 1648 or 3lb10.2oz for the frame and 878g or 1lb15oz for the forks. 

So considering the new condition I'm asking £260 posted for this. I will deliver it personally within the West Yorkshire area and east Manchester, Sheffield etc for a bit less. 

Couple of pics below but loads more at


PM if interested!!
