Customer reviews for Specialized Roubaix Sport Compact

Specialized Roubaix Sport Compact

The smoother, faster Roubaix—named after the grueling Paris-Roubaix race it has won four times—is a high-performance, endurance-focused bike that's highly stable and efficient. The Sport C2 features Shimano 105 compact gearing and our new DT-Axis 1.0 wheels for lower weight and higher performance.

I may not have much in the way of comparison to other bikes, but this gave me almost as smooth of a ride on the bumps as my Specialized Hardrock with front shocks did. The bumps, cracks, and irregularities in the road just seemed to disappear. I got to ride 66 miles on my first venture with the bike and loved every mile! I was able to ride farther and faster than I have ever done previously. I can't wait to get back on it and ride some more!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Today I sorta retired my 2005 Roubaix with about 7000miles on it for a 2013 Roubaix Sport. It took a couple of years for something to make me get off the 2005, it is a great long-term ownership bike. I plan to sell it to a friend who is beginning to ride and I'm sure he will put another 7000miles on it. We ride rough roads in Texas and this is the smoothest, most comfortable ride on the road.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I purchased the 2012 Roubaix and have been very happy with it. I have been riding mountain bikes for the last 20 yrs and this is the first road bike I have owned in 30 yrs. This bike is light and nimble, awesome climber for those steep hills and a speed demon on the downhill. Best Purchase ever made.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This bike is smooth,fast,comfortable,light and a work of art! It's like the luxury sportscar of the bicycle world. They don't call it a race bike but it has a race winning history. 4times at the Paris Roubaix and once in the Race Across America. It's an Endurance Racer. And coming from a big heavy 29er mtb this is a race bike. Some bikes might be faster off the line. But this bike is fast and in a long distance race the Roubaix is king! This is my first roadbike in 25 years and it's awesome . Great component mix of 105/Tiagra . It has the 105 were i want it most in the shifters and rear derailer . The Tiagra components are fine everywhere else. Where i live in Arkansas this is the perfect bike with our rough roads. Already put 19miles on it and alot more as soon as the weather allows. The finish is beautiful on this bike. The photos don't do it justice . In the sun the carbon sparkles and glows. Carbon satin and charcoal . If you want a smooth,fast,comfortable and classy bike. The Roubaix is it! Awesome !!!

I find the Roubaix to be a very comfortable ride, fast ride. I spent many hours trying to decide between an aluminum, almost bought the Secteur. I loved the feel of both bikes but decided on the roubaix as it was a bit more forgiving and felt a bit faster. I bit disappointed in the wheels and some of the Tiagra components but these can be replaced over time. Overall, extremely happy with the bike. I enjoy riding again, thanks to the Roubaix.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Thanks for your review, I just bought this bike and haven´t ridden it for the first time. What´s so disappointing about the Tiagra components? Does it really makes that big a difference? Bye!

I tested many bikes in this price range and this bike fits like a glove. As a newer road cyclist I can ride 30-60 miles without some of the discomfort that can be felt with a more aggressive frame set. The clever frame design coupled with the zertz inserts eats up all but the harshest bumps and road noise. The bike comes with a component compliment that will last you a long time and provide you with reliable service for years to come!!
If you want a comfortable yet competitive road bike for a competitive price, look no further the the Specialized Roubaix!!
Yes, I recommend this product.
