Specialized Roubaix Elite Triple....

Anyone have one or have had one and now have moved on to something else. It seems the perfect bike for many of us over 50 who want comfort and performance. I love mine but am in the market for a second bike and want to at least see if there is anything else that would offer both for a women in a smaller sized frame. And of course, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" might be the smart answer.

For a smaller woman look at the Trek WSD with 650 wheels.

You might check out the Giant OCR carbon series.

Not sure what sizes they come in but Specialized Sequoia or Jamis Aurora are damn good bikes for a good price. Commuter, touring, fittness, cyclo-cross, club rides and a weekend race now and then can all be done on one. I know the Jamis is steel, and you cannot beat the ride and the comfort of the touring geometry. Great all around bikes...

Specialized is coming out with a women's Roubaix in '06 called the "Ruby." You can see it here: http://citybikes.com/site/intro.cfm
