Specialized Roubaix HYBRID???

This is for sale locally. It's billed as a Specialized Roubaix but I thought they were road bikes? Any idea what this would be worth?

I need a hybrid bike.

I have a 54 cm Roubaix in that same color that I'm thinking about doing the same thing to. The right 10 speed brifter works fine after a long bath in the ultrasonic cleaner and re-lubing, but the left brifter is 100% kaput. So I was thinking of setting it up as a 1x9 or 1x10 flat bar bike with different levers & shifter. But no commitments or changes made yet.

I'd say value is less than if original due to the conversion. I think it looks sweet.

Good looking bike and a fair deal IMO (an excellent deal in NYC), assuming it has flat bar shifters not brifters mounted on flat bars.

I ended up donating the Roubaix in my possession to the El Grupo youth cycling team in Tucson. Hopefully they have a left shifter that'll work for it.
