2017 Specialized Roubaix Compact - 8r or 10r?

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 Specialized Roubaix Compact - 8r or 10r?

Can anyone who has a 2017 Specialized Roubaix Compact confirm if the carbon is 8r or 10r?

Too many websites contradicting themselves, even Specialized i'm not sure why the carbon would be different from the Elite or Expert version.

There is no 2017 compact model. Are you getting the old pre-2013 Sport Compact model confused with the 2017 Comp? It should be compared to the 2017 sport, which is 9r. The 2017 comp is 10r.

Does anyone have one that could confirm what the sticker on the bottom reads about the Fact carbon?

Ok thanks.

I never thought it would come to this, but the clean white look of the bike frame is really what i'm after; those new colours just don't speak to me and I never thought that riding a black, charcoal, or dark blue bike on the road was a good idea (visibility). And I also don't need the latest technology, as I don't bike for a living.

Do you mean the "Comp?" If so, Specialized is non-descript and says only Fact carbon.

Yes I know, I know, I know, that's what I wrote above, asking someone to verify what the sticker says on their bike.
