Strengths:    Durable construction, good fit for short rider.

Weaknesses:    Seat post squeaks a little.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great bike! I have ridden for over 1500 miles in 14 months, and had absolutely no problems. I have read of problems with the Alex 330 rims, but I haven't seen it. I am 41 years old, and about 195 lbs. This frame fits a short rider (I am 5'8") better than any other I looked at. Dura Ace/Ultegra combo is very smooth. I love the look of the brushed aluminum frame.

Strengths:    Smooth, DURABLE!

Weaknesses:    not the fastest bike on the block, but I don't think anyone looking at this bike is attempting to qualify for the Tour.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is a tank. 8 of us took one on a cross country bike trip, and through the dessert, up the mountains, and on the plains, they were smooth sailing the whole way. I think of this bike as a cadillac: it's not the fastest, but it is durable, a smooth ride, and it will get you there in style. I would get them again if I were going on a long tour. I now use it for my commute to work, and it is such a great ride.

Date Reviewed: January 21, 2006

Strengths:    Ergonomic geometry, comfortable frame and seat. Outstanding derailleurs with the Shimano STI.

Weaknesses:    Set up not easy to find. New 2006 bike lack this equipment for the value. Alex wheels may need upgrade based on other user feedback; first 3 months have run well.

Bottom Line:   
2005 Specialized Sequoia Comp is a comfortable, strong riding bike. The aluminum frame, carbon forks and Zertz work well to reduce vibrations and extend road trips. The Shimano Ultegra front and Dura Ace rear derailleurs are exceptionally well matched, giving smooth controlled shifting. The slightly raised front frame geometry provides a more ergonomic ride, yet allows power generation when needed. The reduced standover dimension is a real bonus for those with a shorter inseam. A great bike for those over 30 who still want to enjoy a challanging ride!
