I'm a 50 year old man re-discovering my love of cycling. I put on many miles in my younger days racing and touring. In the early to mid 80's raced frequently with italian chro-moly frames and components which were the top of the line at the time. I was leary about transitioning to a carbon bicycle as my heart and soul belonged to the elegant steel machines from my past. Recently purchased a Roubaix Comp Compact in "stealth fighter black" - wrestled a little with the cost but as I am in mid-life thought insignificant in comparison to a new motorcycle or sports car..and much better for my body and soul. This bike is unbelievable - Specialized has knocked it out of the park with this one. Without a doubt the fastest, smoothest, and most comfortable machine I have ever ridden. You don't corner this bicycle, you just think, and it is there effortlessly. The compact gearing, I was worried might be a little low, but not at all the case. In the last weeks of riding in the mountains of Colorado and Wyoming, I was glad that the low end was available to me - nice to be able to keep the cadence up for my middle aged knees. I did upgrade the crank and brakes to ultregra as I wanted the consistency of a matching component group. However, the FSA crank and Axis brakes were very good. This bike is a dream machine and even better is that I see my cyclist body of the 80's returning to me in a hurry. This bike is worth every penny.. Thank-you Specialized!
Great bike for road work.
