Does anyone know of any bikes out there that have similar geometry to the specialized roubaix. The Roubaix is a bit out of my budget, but fits me like a custom. Any help is greatly appreciated.

The Felt Z-series and Giant OCR's seem to be pretty close to Roubaix specs just doing a quick comparison of head tube/top tube lengths and head & seat angle for medium-sized (56-57cm) bikes.. But feel is everything, so you might try as many of the "relaxed geometry" bikes as you can, including the C-Dale Synapse and Trek Pilot lines. I narrowed it down to Roubaix vs. Synapse and bought the C-dale based on price, and have been very pleased.

I'd reccomend the cannondale synapse. Absolutely wonderful bike. In carbon or aluminum. I've ridden both and both ride GREAT!
