Welcome, Luke!!

When you get a chance, pop on over to the Bicycle Mechanics section. Over there you will find all kinds of useful information. If you have a question yourself, then you can start a new thread!

So you're still looking? Looks as if a Sequoia may be in your future .

Its funny you say that, I put a deposit on the Sequoia, they only had 1 left in my size at another location. They are transferring it to the store closest to me so I can give it a test ride on Sunday. I still want to test the aluminum Roubaix as i really liked the carbon one. I called them and they said they would build one in my size.

I guess I will have to see how I like the aluminum vs carbon frame. I could swing the carbon bike I would just have to really like it. I’m trying not to make up my mind about the bikes until I try them out.

i really wanted to like the Sequoia but it did not fit me well (neck issues). i liked both Roubaix's but the aluminum one was geared really low i wanted a higher gear so i could pedal slower and go faster, it was a double not a triple. so long story short i ended up with a Roubaix Elite. i go to get fitted middle of next week, cant wait!
