2014 Specialized Roubaix SL4 Expert

Thanks to the Specialized FACT carbon frame and fork and the vibration-damping Zertz inserts, you'll ride further, faster, and more comfortably than ever on the velvety-smooth Roubaix SL4 Expert! The feathery Fulcrum S4 wheels soar up the climbs, and provide stable, confident handling on descents. The bike is equipped with Shimano's precise 11-speed Ultegra drivetrain, which boasts lightning fast shifts and light action. Plus, Specialized's plush Body Geometry saddle, S-Works carbon seatpost, and fine components invite you to add more miles to every ride.

      Comments:

      I searched diligently for a new bike after deciding to get back into cycling after many years off. I read articles, test road models, talked to riders and shop owners and was consistently pointed toward the Roubaix. I ended up getting a 54cm SL4 Expert in the satin carbon / blue and could not be happier. It is unreal how much bikes have changed. My local LBS made the choice easy and set me up perfectly. The one drawback is the saddle comes standard in 143mm. I need a 155mm saddle and wish you could trade out for the correct size. Overall, I am extremely pleased with the bike and the components it came with. The money was well spent!

      Great Frame. Cheap Wheels

        I got this bike in January 2014 to update my '09 Roubaix with a triple ring. It has a stiffer bottom bracket, lighter, easier Shimano Ultegra compact gearing -- much better when pounding uphill on fast club rides. I have 1000 miles on it. No complaints. My advice: Ask for a discount or trade up the wheels. The Fulcrum wheels that came with mine were cheaply made AND had defective welds.

            I'm 71, 5'11"and 240 lbs. I ride 30 to 40 miles every other day year round in Colorado and Arizona. I had a 2000 LeMond triple crank that doesn't even come close to competing with this bike on comfort or easy of handling. The SL4 is a fantastic bike for me at my age and shape which isn't a bikers physique!
