Trading in my beloved 06 Tarmac (loved by heart and mind, hated by neck, back and shoulders) for something more comfy. Just flat getting older and never was very flexible. Tried to get the Tarmac fitted, but just can't get it upright enough without insulting it's virtue. Bad discs in my neck flare on every long ride. Narrowed it down to two for a variety of reasons (LBS about 2 miles from my house has both in my size and will take my 06 Tarmac in trade, have rode both bikes and love them both):
Roubaix SL4 Sport
Specialized Bicycle Components
Z4 - Felt Bicycles
Went for long spin on both bikes over the weekend. Will be out of pocked about $1000 either way. Roubaix is 105/Tiagra mix and Felt is SRAM Rival/Apex mix. Both frames same as higher end models. I will sell either wheelset as a I have a custom wheelset.
Can't go wrong either way right? Really struggling as both bikes I have dialed in with identical fits with my wheelset and feel I could ride either all day long. Both bikes are amazingly stiff given that I weigh about 260.
Thanks a bunch for your input.
