Here's the road to a fit, healthy lifestyle. Specialized's Crossroads is stable and fun. It sports a laid-back aluminum frame, road-smoothing steel fork, and an upright riding position for ultra-relaxed pedaling, while the fast-rolling, road bike size wheels carry you across town or down to the park with ease. The 21-speed Shimano drivetrain and linear-pull brakes provide easy, precise shifting and confidence-inspiring control. The Crossroads also boasts multi-surface capable tires, Body Geometry grips, and an incredibly comfortable seat.
Comfortable, enjoyable mobility: that's Citizen. This is the ultimate low-carbon-footprint, sightseeing machine. It's a low-impact and fun workout for new cyclists and a zero-emissions way to get around town. We can't think of a better way to be a good Citizen. Easy to look at. Easy to get on We're super proud of the Citizen's sleek frame design. With an arcing top tube for the "men's" frames and s-bend top and down tubes for a super-low step-thru 'women's" version. In fact, we hesitate to designate either with gender specific labels because the version with the easy-access, low step-over top tube is suitable for anyone with limited hip flexibility who might be challenged to swing a leg over the rear wheel when mounting & dismounting. And easy to ride When it comes to recreational riding, nothing gets more uncomfortable faster than having to pedal more weight than necessary. That is why Citizen 1, 2 & 3 are built with lightweight 6061 aluminum tubing. In fact, our aluminum Citizen frames are at least a half-pound lighter than our famous steel coda street bikes. We design comfort into the naturally stiffer ride of the aluminum tubes by specifying larger volume 38c tires and adding a few millimeters to the chainstay and wheelbase length. Ride position A usual complaint from new or returning riders trying to get into the cycling groove is feeling uncomfortably perched forward with too much weight on their wrists and having to crank their necks backwards just to be able to see in traffic. We specifically designed our Citizens to remedy this. The large diameter 700c wheels push handlebar height up and shorter top tubes pull handlebars closer to the saddle, all to mitigate forward lean. Our 4-inch rise handlebars sweep back at a natural hand-grasp angle with a long-quilled or angle-adjustable stem that allows for a wide range of adjustment to tune handle bar height and reach perfectly for each ride. Where it counts Our super plush saddle features memory foam padding (Citizen 2 & 3) or extra high-quality polyurethane padding (Citizen 1 & Citizen) for optimum support with maximum comfort. The slip-resistant suede-type top prevents sliding and the burnished side panels reduce leg friction while pedaling. Elastomer springs help soak up high resonance road vibrations. Offered in gender-specific sizes. Why 700c? So why go with a Citizen instead of an Explorer or a Hudson since they all seem to offer many of the same comfort and quality attributes? It's simple: if your riding will be primarily on the road or on smoothly graded trails, the larger diameter road-bike sized 700c Citizen wheels roll faster with less rolling resistance and roll over potholes and railroad tracks more smoothly than the 27.5" wheels of the Explorer and Hudson. Geared to go The drivetrains on our Citizen 1, 2, & 3 all feature long cage rear derailleurs, full- size 48/38/28t triple chainring cranksets, and big 11-32t or 14-34t gearing in the back. This gives you the dual advantage of having fairly tall gears for controlled pedaling at speed on descents as well as really low gearing for easier pedaling uphill. It's a rider-friendly combination that's made the Citizens a perennial favorite of recreational cyclists.

Our SSD custom geometry and Reynolds double-butted Chromoly frame deliver a comfortable ride with maximum stability in every frame size, while the 650b wheels offer both the security of 12mm thru-axle mounting and the pot-hole-eating capability of high-volume 47c tires. Toss in high-powered hydraulic disc brakes, a no-nonsense 1 x 10 drivetrain, and a ton of fender, bottle, and rack mounts, and the Sequel is clearly ready for urban assault no matter the surface or condition.
