I have definitely decided to purchase a Specialized Robaix....love the geometry/comfort of the bike. For comparison sake I demoed the Seqoia, Comp and Pro last week.
I am returning to a roadbike at 55 y.o. with a bunch of medical issues I want to cater to (knee replacement, carpal tunnel, etc.). Having decided on the Comp, I still have lingering thoughts about the Pro and would GREATLY appreciate your thoughts.
I am fine with the 105's on the Comp, although I do know the Ultegra set is smoother. What I am interested in is the comfort level for my joints. Do you know if the difference in the carbon layup, handlebars, stem, etc. warrants the increase in $ ? I plan to put MANY miles on this bike, including centuries.
The Comp was a GREAT ride, as was the Pro. The Pro felt firmer and clearly dampened the road stress during a relatively short demo ride. What are your thoughts?
