Hi all, picked up this alpinestars Xross a few months back and slowly upgrading the components. Currently set up as a 1x10 with xtr dereailleur, xt canti and crankset. Still debating if I want to put drop bars on it.

What was this bike marketed as, a hybrid, a cyclocross, or mountain?

Hi Joel welcome to retrobike, nice bike and the condition looks great. Hope you enjoy the ride, I would put drop bars on it of it where mine. Do a search on the forum, I'm sure there's anothe cross around. There's also a "show us you're Alpinestars" thread maybe post the bike in there as well.

Definitely put some drops bars on it and some of road tyres, something like the Clement Crusade are great for ripping up the single track.
