I would consider the amount each bike has been ridden... a 2007 might have spent most of its life in the garage and be in better shape than a 2013 daily rider. Chances are the 2007 has more wear and tear but you never know unless you check 'em out and take 'em for a test ride. The roubaix is all carbon while the trek has an aluminum frame, if that matters to you. 10 speed chains and other stuff is pretty cheap these days but the new 10 speed tiagra shifters/derailleurs aren't compatible with older 10 speed stuff, I think they changed the cable pull. The specialized came with a triple so if you want a wider gear range for hills that might be the one to pick assuming it is in decent shape mechanically.

I also have a 2011 Roubaix and it's quite comfortable. The trek look likes a decent bike though.
