I've owned a Roubaix Pro (frame set) and Secteur, which is the Sequoia's replacement. The Secteur and Roubaix have identical geometries. Both have carbon forks, the Roubaix has a carbon frame, the Secteur's is aluminum. The Secteur has a surprisingly good ride for an aluminum bike, but most of that is likely attributable to the carbon fork and 25 mm tires. The Roubaix is just smoother, most noticeably so on coarse roads as opposed to out and out rough roads. No doubt the Roubaix wins, hands down. You have decide if the price of victory is worth it.
