Cross Over
Leave The Known Behind and Go Explore
Picture this… it’s a Saturday morning in late spring and you’ve got nothing ahead of you but a full day in the saddle. You’re up at first light, fuel up, kit up, and off you go without a care in the world. Today’s ride isn’t about the local coffee stop or an organized group ride on the typical loop; today is a day for exploring new roads. An hour or so into the ride, you’re finally beyond those roads you’ve become so familiar with, and you now take every pedal stroke with increased anticipation of what lies beyond the horizon. You come upon a mysterious dirt path that leads towards the tree line so stop to ponder the endless possibilities of where it might lead. One cleat clipped in and your hands on your bars, you’re ready to cross over into the unknown; but is your bike?

It’s those long days in the saddle and the freedom to make decisions that the Cross Over is built to for. A cross between a road bike and a cross bike, the Cross Over is designed to deliver the ultimate ride quality and adaptability. If you love riding but aren’t necessarily going to be doing a lot of racing, then this is the road bike for you. Perfectly capable of taking on a bunch sprint on your Thursday night group ride or going on a gravel adventure, this is sure to be your go to bike.

Standard Key Features

Columbus Steel Tubing
Unless the specific build calls for something else, we use lugged steel from Columbus for our frames. The Italian steel mill has long been the preferred choice for frame builders because they produce tubes that are lightweight, extremely durable, and offer a range of tube sizes which gives the builder options to choose from for each custom build.
Custom Geometry
Part art and part science. This is what the custom experience is all about. You'll work 1:1 with Tim to pull of the details together to create something that is tailor-made just for you. We only work on one bike at a time so while your bike is getting built, Shamrock Cycles is literally only thinking about you how to deliver the bike that you want.
Custom Paint
We will provide you with some color options to help guide your decision making but the paint scheme is ultimately up to you. Corby Concepts paints most of our frames and paints the decals on as well. All Shamrock frames are adorned with a beautiful polished Pewter head badge making it clear that you're riding the Lug of the Irish. 
Build Specific Dropouts
Responsive handling and maximum power transfer are some key characteristics that every Shamrock design focuses on. Achieving these characteristics requires purposeful selection of even the smallest of components. We strongly believe that Paragon dropouts are the best out there so feature them on the majority of our builds.

Popular Upgrades

Internal Cable Routing
We'll route the cables differently to suite the bikes intended purpose but if it's a clean look that you're going for, then internally routed cables are something that you might want to consider. There is an additional charge of $150 for this upgrade.
Additional Bosses
Depending on the riding you'll be doing, you may want to think about additional bosses to mount bags and packs to take with you. No problem. We'll add bosses wherever you want them. This is a custom bike after all. 
If you want additional braze-ons such as pump peg, chain hanger, rack eyelets, canti studs, etc. there is no charge.  We can work together to 
figure out what you want and don't want. That's all part of the custom process.
