I don't find my Specialized Roubaix THAT plush. I run 120 rear 110 front psi. Is it b/c I'm coming from riding a MTB on the road, b/c i'm 102 kg, or is it the crappy roads in S. Korea? I tried riding a friend's alloy road bike and it felt about the same actually :|
I'm not unhappy with the bike. It performs beautifully and looks great. Going from a 40lb hardtail to a 17lb road bike is a huge jump in performance. I'm just wondering when the 'comfy' part of the roubaix kicks in. The selling point for the bike is supposed to be comfort. I guess I also ride a little tense because I worry about crashing my new bike and I'm new to a road bike design, maybe that has something to do with it.
I tend to think my weight has something to do with it though and kind of wonder what weight I'll have to hit to benefit from the whole carbon thing?
