Value, smooth ride, looks great, rides true


Rear hub randomly doesn't catch on the freewheel(Specialized hubs) brakes are a bit weak. And I a not a fan of the Shimano 105 group. Had nothing but trouble with the rear derailuer. And the seat is a bit uncomfortable after long rides (45-60 miles)Stock Specialized tires are good, however the front split in the middle @ 350ish miles.

It's actually a 2008 model but for some reason the year only went up to '07. My first carbon bike, very comfortable to ride long distances. It's like riding in a lazy boy, little road vibrations.
