I've got an 07 sport (UK). I had to wait an age but I'm glad I did.
Went into the shop and enquired, they said, yes, two in stock in another shop. I went over to the other shop the next day to discover that they'd just sold one and the other was in a box. They said they'd build it and I'd come back at the weekend for a test ride. I turn up to a "Sorry, erm, we sold it" ARGH! Four weeks goes by but eventually specialized delivered to them about a week earlier than the projected date. The chap said that worldwide there was high demand for all of the models.
It's a nice machine, I don't know what pedals your expert comes with but the first thing I did was bin them and put eggbeaters on (I run mallets on my MTB). The ones on the sport really are a load of rubbish. One thing you will notice is the ride quality is incredibly smooth, I'm guessing yours will be even better.
What I will implore you to do is watch for chain rub and cable stretch. I hammered out a fair few miles in the first 6 weeks or so, probably in the order of 800 and didn't pay enough attention to the sounds coming out of the rear mech and the stickness of the changers. Anyway, I blow the rear mech hanger and I'm lucky that I stop before the whole thing seizes. I need a new rear hanger and I've bent the derailleur so a new one of those aswell
Geometry is nice for me, I'm tall but I've got short arms and legs for my build, too much length in the torso. I've been able to commute on it to the tune of 80 miles a week with no problem.
Oh, and the flightdeck that came with mine didn't have index markers but a friend has just bought the same bike and it does. YMMV.
p.s. I say no problems, dust cover over the bearings on the front hub came loose after it lost a dust seal.
