Specialized … i’ve had a few sips of the Kool-Aid
like a carbon weave.
Adam had me riding one of his sweet&sexy Roubaix-bies. .
now … many will know that i love me the indie-crafted bike madmanufactured with hands both local and wildlife inspired.
but gawdamn … that bike and equipment Adam had me scampering roadways-wise was … amazingly engineered and fitted like a loving glovey-dovey.
i think i’ve just been … Specialized.
The bike weighed under 16lbs and was stable like structured to do so, you know? The front end trailed out a bit over the sweet 60mm, so flowed long and strong, letting you buckle-tight for bomb running dives and descending downward delights.
the stability has a small cost in making the front end just a hair slower when standing high, but it doesn’t matter regarding performance ~ because i can say, with a shrug of “eh, whatyagonnado”, that the rear-end of this SpecializedRoubaix was the stiffest, quickest, yet compliant bike i’ve ever ridden.
and i’ve ridden a bit. really.
We were doing a photoshoot, first on EurekaCanyon’s drops … then, up and over Mt.MadonnaTop. The photocats we rolled with were of the variety i wish i had more contact with … socially aware, hip with the wit, and ready to toss down salsa when work needs to be done.
HotShotScot and UgandaMike – good guys to bomb down a mountain with. just a damn fun time.
we got pics of gloves and helmet, kit and pimp’d shoes … and, of course, the Roubaix was perched and secret-tested on some of their new chingon wheels.
… gotta say folks … Specialized stuff
~ i’m taking another look.
