Questions from an ex crossrunner rider

Postby PGEO » Fri Oct 20, 2017 4:06 pm

Hi. I am picking up mine next Fri. Have 2 questions. Were there any 2017 upgrades? Is that all fuss about issues on high speed valid?

Cheers. Drive fast and safe.

The main change IMHO is to the suspension. I test rode the 2015 model twice and just didn’t get on with it, the 2017 is not vastly different but enough to make me think I could ride it for several hours and enjoy, which I didn’t feel about the 2015 bike. The weight difference to a Crossrunner is huge, you will notice that for sure!!

Crossrunner 2013 was a good but nkt a great bike. I felt not connected way too soon. Was between tiger and the tracer. If there is no off road use....tracer wins in almost every aspect. Thanx!

Welcome to the forum PGEO! I tried a Crossrunner before buying the Tracer. Dealer said "You'll love this one" Didn't look impressed when I told him it was like sitting on a farm quad! It would have done all I needed, but I just felt it was going to be a bit boring. The Tracer is far from that!!
Enjoy!
