Well, I’m now the proud owner of a modified 2010 Specialized Tricross Comp. Modified in the sense that I had the wheels switched out to more hard-wearing touring wheels for my planned trip across these great United States. I also had it converted to a triple, to tackle what I’m sure is going to be just hours of fun on the Appalachians! And the Rockies!
When I add the TransAmerica section to this site (still working on it), I’ll give a rundown of everything this bike is and can be. At the moment, I’m cranking around on it in some gnarly cold weather and commuting to work on it. I love it. I mean, I REALLY LOVE IT.
I named him Precious. Not like the movie that just came out, but like the ring in that other movie. You know the one. I is drawn to it. 🙂
More photos here, including one where I’m pretty sure he’s being blessed.
