Ok so I'm new to completely new to cycling. My wife is a runner and now wants to start to cycle so I said I would ask well. We have gone and looked at a few bikes ando I am stuck between two. I went and rode a 2016 specialized roubaix sport and really liked it but I plan on going to ride a tarmac sport this weekend. The Roubaix was very comfortable and felt great but I feel like I will get into cycling and want something more along the lines of a race geometry. Now I will say we plan to commute to work, 6.5 miles or 11.5 depending on where I work that day, so want I really want to know is the Roubaix going to be that much more comfortable of a ride?
