Is it compatible with mechanical front derailleurs or only electronic (like the carbon version)?

I wish it wasn't so expensive, but I really want one. I've been playing with the idea of replacing my Aethos with a true road race bike and a do-it-all endurance/CX/gravel bike. I've been eying the Trek Crockett to fit the latter but this offers 47mm tire clearance to Trek's (conservative) 38mm which makes it much more attractive.

I wouldn't make use of it, but it's got UDH as well.

The famous 'Specialized tax'; £2,300 for an alloy bike with Apex AXS is quite pricey - especially when there are still carbon Crux's available for £2,600......

When Specialized release a bike, it's usually all over You Tube with Bike Radar, Roadcc, GCN, Dave Arthur, etc However, very little for this bike.......

Same price as the Allez Sprint DSW and that's a superb frame set for the money, paid my deposit on the Crux for when it comes out around August :D

The frame would be a nice choice for a n+1 bike. 🤔
