Specialized 2015 Roubaix SL4 Sport that I recently picked up in Japan. I've never been a big Spec fan but this thing with minimal adjustment just fits me like a glove. 450km with 6000m+ in climbing in the first 14 days. After two months with no bike, I still managed just shy of 100km on my first ride. (Thank god for the 34/32 granny gear... I'm too out of shape to handle 2-3km of 10-12% grade for several of these mountain passes.) Nothing special, just an over-priced bike with Garmin 510, lights, and bottles.

Is XTR the Shimano MTB group? Does it work with DA shifters straight away?
I'd love a bike like that but the old-time road gearing just won't work for me (39x25? I know two 20% climbs within a mile from my house!)
