|The Crosshairs frame is one of the most versatile designs offered. Though originally conceived for competitive cyclo-cross events; road riding, commuting, hard pack and non-technical off road are also all within the scope of this bike. The Crosshairs has steering like a stage racing road bike, faster than a typical cross design. The longer wheelbase supports the Crosshairs' bigger tires, working well with stems 10mm shorter than a corresponding road bike. Made from Waterford's exclusive OS2 butted tube sets, featuring True Temper OX Platinum air-hardening steel alloys, custom drawn to rigorous specs. Asymmetrical D section chainstays provide rigidity along with generous chainring and tire clearance. Tubeset specifications vary by frame size to offer riders of all sizes the strength and stiffness they need. One of the most versatile high-performance bikes you can buy, suitable as a cross race bike or a road bike for off-season training, commuting or light touring. Tire clearance up to 38mm with or without fenders. Includes seat collar, down tube shifter bosses, double water bottle bosses, rear eyelets and stainless steel masked rear dropouts. Available colors are red, black, silver, blue, yellow or any current color of the month. Delivery time may vary depending on season. Size measured center to top. 68mm bb shell width, 28.6mm front derailleur clamp, 27.2 seatpost and 1-1/8 in. head tube. Maximum rack load is 22 lbs. Made in USA. Guaranteed for Lifetime
