Specialized Roubaix Expert Triple Bicycle
Bike has less than 1,500 miles. It is not the correct size for me so it did not get many miles. It has also been kept indoors always and has never been ridden in the rain. Prior to listing for sale, it was completly adjusted and checked. It turned out the rear hub had a manufacturers defect (grease was too thick) so Shimano replaced the entire wheel set with brand new Ultegra wheels. Tires are also brand new.

This bike is such a sweet ride! Super lightweight and stiff enough for amazing take-off but compliant enough to be comfortable. The Roubaix has a more upright seating position so it's very comfortable on long rides. The full carbon frame was handmade in Taiwan and is in perfect condition. I have ridden one century (Harvest Century) and one half-century (Portland Century) and a handful of training rides on this bike. The triple front crank is wonderful for those horrible hills!
It is with much regret that I have to sell this bike but as I said, it just doesn't fit me. I need to sell it so I can get one that does fit me. I have spent a lot of time and money upgrading this bike when I purchased it so the buyer of this bike will get a very nice deal. A new Roubaix Expert sells for $3,600 without all the upgrades that are on this this bike. It's absolutely ready to ride and in perfect condition so you can get a great head start on the season.
