2013 Specialized Roubaix Elite Compact

Thanks to Specialized's FACT-carbon frameset and its vibration-damping Zertz inserts, you'll ride further and more comfortably than ever on the velvety-smooth Roubaix Elite Compact! You'll love the DT Swiss wheels that get up to speed effortlessly and the quick-shifting, 20-speed Shimano 105 compact drivetrain that flattens once-challenging hills. And for coming back down steep grades, the Shimano 105 dual-pivot brakes offer outstanding confidence and control. Plus, Specialized's plush Body Geometry seat and fine components invite you to add more miles to every ride.

        This bike has an ultra smooth and plush ride. Comfort is not an issue with this Roubaix. I opted for the Compact Elite due to price and experience. I did not feel my level of experience warranted much more bike. However, I have no regrets with this purchase. This bike fulfilled more than I anticipated. I have owned other brands of bikes, faster in one regard, but certainly not this comfortable. This bike is a true pleasure to ride for hours and is a surprisingly better climber than I would have imagined. Web-picture also does not do it justice. This bike is great looking and the gold accent looks great in person against the white/black combo.

              Great ride but maybe its because I've been riding mountain bikes or my old 78 raleigh competition and everything feels better. Shifts great, very agile, the fit was done well. Did 20 miles on a path that was a little muddier and messier than I expected and it handled and rode well. No complaints from me on this bike, very happy camper... err.. biker. mike lambie
