Thought you may like to see my bikes

First off my pride and joy Specialised Roubaix SL4 full ultegra far too fast for my old legs

[/img]

Second the Giant Defy 0



And my most recent purchase the Specialized Secteur sport SE Triple to try and help me get up the hills I can't manage on the Roubaix which is most of them

the roubaix is lovely, the last one ok. I (this is my own opinion) really dislike the look of that Giant.

Thanks Mossy

I've only just got the Secteur on Thursday and today did a gentle 5 miles just to see if it was set up ok. Initial thoughts are it seems a solid bit of kit, the zert inserts really help with road buzz along with the gel pads in the bars. Gearing although a lowly sora set up is very crisp and Instills confidence that every gear change will be made without incident. Wheels seem a bit slow but I've got fulcrum 4 set to go on when I get sorted. First long ride tomorrow so if there's any more thoughts I'll post them up here

Phil

Brother-in-law has a Tarmac SL4, with a mix of Ultegra & 105 (& Roval wheels)
Fairly light too!

It's a nice looking bike, but too small for me to (seriously) try

He's happy with it.......... I guess, then again, I thought he was with the Univega (10-speed Dura-Ace) that he px-d for it Rolling Eyes

The Univega when he had it, I've no pics of the SL4

Strangely enough the one that appeals to me most is the Giant. Guarded up and geared down, it looks like a great winter bike.
