My Hardrock Sport, on the ridge near my house.

How do you mean? A bit premium and a cut above the usual traffic, has very high performance models but also something for everyone... as long as you are not after cheap or bargain basement?

Then yes, yes it is.

A lot of people are anti- specialised, saying they are soul less, boring or dull.

I like spesh a lot.

They might not always be innovators, but they will take ideas on and push them such as making endurance bikes like the roubaix mainstream, and then putting bouncy handlebars on it.

I like their concept stores, being able to go and see, and ride bikes I’m interested in.

Seeing these old mountain bikes is making me wish I'd never got shot of my first 'proper' bike, a Kona Hahanna. Although I did crack the frame so didn't have a lot of choice :sad: My brother bought an eBay bargain Kikapu recently and I'm dead jealous :laugh:

Anyway, Specialized... I don't know what made me choose the Roubaix to get back in to cycling but I'm thoroughly glad I did as it's an excellent bike ^_^ I've not used it much recently other than Zwifting on the turbo but it's served me well in the 14 or so months I've owned it and I look forward to many more miles on it next year ^_^


My other Specialized is this beauty. I got it dirty today on a very cold, icy and wet ride around Thetford forest. It was great fun :laugh:


Tomorrow's job will be a partial strip down to clean it a bit better - it got hosed down before it went in the garage but I like to keep it as shiny as possible between rides :blush:

Updated photo of the Roubaix; SRAM groupset swapped for Ultegra with Hope RX4 calipers and discs I took the opportunity to have a wheels mfg. bottom bracket installed while it was in bits too She's only done about 1300 miles so loads of life left in her yet :becool:
