Singlespeed cyclocross bike

Recommended Posts

Traitor Crusade, 52cm medium. $750


I purchased this bike new in January of 2018. Used for several gravel races this year. Upgraded components indicated with a *. Gave away the wheels, tires, bars, stem, and cranks.

· Traitor Crusade steel frame and fork (same as a Transition Rapture)
· Salsa Cowbell 3 handlebar*
· Shimano 105 crankset with 172.5mm arms and 39t ring*
· Stan's Arch EX rims*, set up tubeless with Panaracer Gravelking tires*
· Giant carbon fiber seatpost*
· TRP Hylex hydro brakes
· Paul Word disc rear hub* with fresh bearings and 16t White Industries freewheel*

This bike is smooth and lightweight (for a steel bike). It's been great on mixed-terrain urban riding and gravel racing. It could make a good all-weather commuter. I have not raced cyclocross, but I imagine it would do well on a cross course with some knobbier tires. I am 5'9" and it fits me well.

You can put front and rear derailleurs and a full modern shifting drivetrain on this bike, but you would need to change some parts.

cracked my mtb frame, so I need the cash more than I need a second bike.
