For sale is my 52cm 2012 Specialized Crux Expert with SRAM Force. The paint scheme is the Black/White/Red. Here is a link to the bike from Specialized's site. This frame was purchased new at the beginning of last season and spec'd out very similarly to the stock build with some major improvements. The largest being a Specialized S-Works BB30 Crank with Carbon Spider and SRAM CX chainrings. This crank is far lighter and stiffer than the stock FSA that Specialized specified. The SRAM chainrings also shift drastically better. Also I used Avid Shorty Ultimates instead of TRP Eurox Brakes. They have way more stopping power and are easily adjustable.


I raced this bike about 10 times last season and rode it on gravel during fair weather (no nasty sloppy days, that is what my SS is for). At the end of the season I replaced the rear derailleur due to the old one being fairly beat up. The chain, cassette and bottom bracket were also replaced at the end of the season. The shifters were replaced as well. I had a pair of SRAM Apex's on the bike due to running out of funds at the end of the build. I upgraded them to SRAM Rival just recently over the summer.

Still available? Do you have pictures? Thx.

The bike is still available (probably due to the lack of pictures). I honestly have been lazy and haven't taken them. I will get some posted here or to your email by morning.

Finally took pics. I had to get the new shifters slapped on as well. Got them installed today. Even left the stickers on them to prove they are brand new with 0 miles on them.


Price dropped as of 08/21/2013.

Any chance you still have the older shifters kicking around?

I actually do. Email me at arob157 at gmail dot com if you are interested. The right shifter was actually warrantied, so it is brand new.

I've sent you an email regarding the bike.


Is this bike still for sale?
