I have been a fan of my old steel bike for several decades but recently decided to join some rides. Some of the cyclists I know recommended Specialized, so did the LBS. I rode my first half century on my Secteur with no issues. It was nimble, quick and comfortable the entire distance.
I had been looking for a road bike for several months and I took test rides on road bikes from several of the big manufactures to see what fit the best. The Secteur was the bike that I kept going back to. The upright geometry does not hurt my back or shoulders like the more race oriented bikes and the components are more than adequate to start with. I have not weighed the bike but picking it up is a breeze and I am amazed how quick it gets up and moving when you pedal. The only thing I needed to add was a water bottle cage, lights and a set of clipless pedals. The ride is very comfortable and everything seems to work as it should. The only complaint I have is that the shifting is not as quick or as crisp as I would like, but in the pricepoint I was at, it is something I could deal with. I do not see the need to make any upgrades at this time and I am happy just to get out and put in the miles!! I plan to put in 1000's of miles on this bike and it feels like it will hold up to anything I can throw at it. The streets here in Las Cruces are pretty bad and the carbon fork has made my riding much more enjoyable. Watch out Raasaf...I think I finally have the bike to conquer you!! I couldn't be happier with my purchase...touche Specialized!!
My wife replaced my old bike with this beauty yesterday from my LBS (Shout out to Red Wheel Bike Shop in Jefferson City, MO). This bike is extremely comfortable for long rides. It has exceptional handling and is quick as well. The color and styling of this bike caught my eye as soon as I walked in to the shop. I love it. I definitely recommend this to any new riders or even experienced riders looking for a nice smooth ride. I myself prefer long rides over fast rides and this is going to see many of them in its long life with me. Happy riding all!!!!
