    Sorry to bother you I have a 2018 especialized hybrid crosstrail and I was wondering if I can switch my tires for ground control especialized tires for more rough terrain? These are more of a mountain bike tires but not Soo thick. If you know I gladly appreciate the advice. Thank you

    Gord I sure do hope Specialized have the fitness brain all sorted.
    My new 2017 Specialized Crosstrail commuter bike has the fitness brain front fork system and its pure crap.
    The bike is mostly lovely well that is except for the fitness brain fork that's completely useless.
    I hate the fork that much I had it replaced with a 700c Rockshox Paragon fork.
    Very disappointing when you buy a new bike based on the fitness brain fork and the 2 x 10 gearing and then you find the fork is no farking good.
