Thank you sir. My Roubaix is a 2013 Elite model. I believe it has the "SL2" frame, Carbon 8R. The Seatpost is also carbon. Unfortunately the shop no longer exists.

Too much for me! I'm quite satisfied going 25 MPH with my eZee motor, and I have parameters limited to 480W and 10A. Even this seems a little edgy at times.
