it depends how much money you have to burn. is Roubaix comfortable and geometry/size fits you well? If the answer is yes then in general, yes, you are crazy. 8^) almost everyone who reads these forums here is crazy! welcome to the club! 8^)

i had 2004 Roubaix Comp, it was a very good bike. Stolen from my house along with a lot of other personal stuff... Sadly missed. I would not swap Roubaix for a Tarmac unless you race crits. Long rides on average roads is where Roubaix is good. Fast or slow.

Are you keeping the Roubaix? Many of us RBR members enjoy having more than one road bike. If I only had one, I would missed the ride today.

I would keep the Roubaix. And have the Tarmac in addition, for fast club rides and maybe some local road races.

If one is good... then two is better.

I have a Roubaix and a Tarmac. Several people here have purchased a Roubaix and then a Tarmac. It rarely seems to be the other way around. I don't regret having both.

Does the difference in climbing and handling justify the purchase in your opinion?
