Anyone know when they typically put these out? Specialized is the bike supplier for 2011, I am wondering what the bike will look like.

Dude, way too early to be asking. The ink on the contract for Contador is barely dry. You probably won't see a new paint scheme for 2011 for the team until late 2010, and who knows, by the 2011 Tour, I'm sure Contador will have an exclusive paint job.

That is a Tarmac...in 2010 they had a Roubaix in those colors....will they do that for the Roubaix in 2011?

Doesn't look like it...

Unless you're looking at this one...

http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bc/SBCBkModel.jsp?spid=52870&eid=6064&menuItemId=14881

Looks to be the only Roubaix model that comes with blue on the frame.
I'm a big fan of blue...I have the '10 Roubaix Comp w/the Saxo colors. I liked it on the '10 frame because it was subtle and not loud. The '11 Expert in blue just screams loud and I don't like it. Maybe it will be different in person when I see it. That carbon/gloss carbon Roubaix Expert is very nice looking. I still think they left the Roubaix out to dry on the paint schemes vs the '11 Tarmacs.

I'm with you Mikagsd! The Tarmac definitely got the better end of the deal. I don't like the Expert or Pro paint jobs and that is where I was looking. The S-Works is too much $$$ for me....I am hoping they have a Roubaix Pro Frameset in the Saxo Bank get up when they finally get around to it. Fingers crossed.

I'll tell ya...if the 2010 S Works Roubaix in the white blue is available anywhere on sale, I would pick that up in a heart beat but I don't think its available anymore. Here it is:
