Went to a local LBS (a Specialized store) and was looking at bikes.
I have been looking at the Roubaix Elite.
He showed me the 2010 Secteur (an exact frame copy of the Roubaix in aluminum). This new bike will replace the Sequoia - no longer made (sob).
He said that if I were to ride a Roubaix (or any full carbon bike) I would double my distance due to the increase in comfort compared to an aluminum frame bike.
That sounds like BS from a LBS - what do you guys think?
