Specialized Bicycle Demo Days

I got the chance to ride (and crash) a $5500 Specialized Tricross S-Works on the Alum Creek trails yesterday. On short notice I drove up to check out what Specialized has to offer. Full carbon frame and it has the new SRAM double-tap system. It took me a few minutes to acclimate to the shifting. They threw on some Crank Brothers pedals for me and let me borrow a helmet and off I went. I think I only rode into the trail a mile or so and on the way back hit some rocks, tried to clip out and went down. The bike it very stiff and as Matt from BikeSource in Clintonville said, "Dude, you should have ridden the $8,000 full suspension mountain bike," and I agree. I am sure it was more forgiving.
