Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

2017 Roubaix

So the 2017 Roubaix has this new future shock technology. Why do you think the 2017 Diverge does not have the future shock tecnology? Seems to me that the verge could benefit from the technology even more than the Roubaix. Any thoughts?

Just thoughts, but it could be that with the bigger tires, the shock isn't (as) necessary... Or it could be that they wanted to focus on the Roubaix for 2017, and decided to fine-tune the future shock for the Diverge a year later.

I can't see the Diverge would not get the future shock at the time of its next update. It seems the ideal bike for this technology.

Or maybe things will go like in Australia where the Diverge is no longer imported except the cheapest aluminium model...
