    I've owned the bike from new, apart from changing to a titanium railed saddle it's all original. I'm mostly a roadie so have only ridden the Epic half a dozen times in the lakes at Whinlatter or Grisedale trail centres. The bike is fantastic, it can be set up super stiff which is what I like and it is a quick cross country machine. The bike is far too good for me, it's a case of 'all the gear but little idea'. I plan to ride more MTB so I should improve but I do love riding off road and would highly recommend Whinlatter near Braithwaite.

    @mark st1 Have you had the S-works allez out much? What are your thoughts?

    Yes @PaulSecteur unfortunatly due to financial reasons it's gone now but I can say it's a very good machine. Didn't feel as racey as the SL4 Tarmac but a bit more than the Roubaix so kind of in between. Much more responsive out of the saddle than my Allez Sport far less flex at the BB area and my times uphill (the same hills)were better on the S Works bike. Very stiff frame all round the bloke that built it for me had a go and also said how responsive it felt putting power down. Without trying to scrimp the weight was bang on 7kg with full Ultegra inc wheels and Spd pedals so the potential is there for the weight weenies. Sad to see it go and would happily buy another ( will keep doing the lottery ) but hey ho on to the next one.....:okay:

    @mark st1 Sorry to hear it has gone. I'm in the same boat so may have to sell my Roubaix. Sad times...

    Picked this up from the gent that is @ianrauk for a bargain. Cracking looking machine 2009 Roubaix Elite full Ultegra 10 speed RS 11 wheels chuffed to bits for the price. Now if someone could make this rain bugger off so I could get out on her I'd be most grateful.
