2012 Specialized Roubaix Apex Compact

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.

    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.

      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.
