I test rode a Specialized Roubaix with the new Sora 3500 shifters. They do work just fine, and you can shift from the drops, but there's a lot of slop in the system IMO. I think they would work fine for a commuter or secondary bike. But I would spend the extra money to get 4600 Tiagra for my primary bike. I would actually get Tiagra on a secondary bike myself but I'm kind of picky about shift quality.
