The further you ride the Specialized Roubaix Apex Compact, the better it gets! Specialized's FACT-carbon frameset has vibration-damping Zertz inserts so you can ride more comfortably than ever. You'll love the DT Swiss wheels that get up to speed effortlessly and the quick-shifting 20-speed SRAM compact drivetrain that flattens once-challenging hills. And for coming back down steep grades, the SRAM 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.

    Comments:

    I've put 2,000 miles on this bike in under ten months, and I still love it. It's ideal for riders who want to ride comfortably and quickly over long rides - in my case 30-60 mile rides. The SRAM shifter was new to me and took a bit of work to get used to but is easy now. It's a great-looking bike that inspires me to ride.

      Comments:

      I just up graded from a Secteur Sport after three weeks of riding a road bike and OMG what a difference. As soon as you sit on this bike the road just melts away. My first ride was a 25 miler and i wanted to continue further. The carbon frame just absorbs the road and the Sram shifters make inclines inexistent. If you are in the market for a road bike this is the one.
