Does the roubaix absorb shocks as much as they say? If so, it sounds like a seriously good investment.

I've only had one ride on the bike so far this past Saturaday. The bike does smooth out the road vibration. After 52 miles I felt great. I had some tightness in my upper back the last two miles but that is more due to my age than the bike. I will be going on my second ride this afternoon and will be doing a metric century the first week of June. I test rode bikes from Trek and Lemond and the Specialized was the best ride for the money in my opinion.

Titanium baby!

Paint? We don't need no stinking paint!

AMEN. I've loved my Giant Cross bike. RAW aluminum is very nice looking. My bike shop guy here in Okinawa, Komesu-san has a gorgeous no-paint Panasonic titanium.

Nice bike.

I'm in love with this Art Decor painted C40! The picture doesn't make it justice!

I also find nice the violet color of this steel Pinarello. I've never seen another around.

I agree, such as anodized. Even "naked" carbon:p

Call me crazy but I like the classic Bianchi, multi-odd-color schemes :D

I've got a black Bianchi (Gold Race Pro) with celeste highlights (bar tape, saddle, logos, pedals etc). It's better than an all-celeste frame. Now if I could find some black and celeste aero rims, that would really finish the job.:)
