2009 Specialized SX Trail
MSRP: $3700 ($3300 for 2010)
The Specialized SX Trail series of bikes are loved by many riders for a lot of good reasons. This updated version should put a smile on many new and old faces. The 2009 SX Trail saw many new changes from to the 2008 version and it seems all for the best in terms of improving where the SX Trail fell short in previous versions. For 2010, the price has came down, and the value has gone up even more.
The SX Trail series offers up 170mm of plush rear wheel travel to help smooth just about all terrain and with its front derailleur can help get you back uphill as well. The SX Trail is a versatile bike that many riders have turned to as their one bike solution. It can be ridden in the bike park one day, on freeride stunts another, an XC trail the next, and through most everything in between.
