Specialized Issue Product Safety Recall For Select Roubaix, Ruby, Diverge, and Sirrus

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

In fact I am such a dope that I also purchased a Diverge then proceeded to ride it self supported from Lisbon to Girona. I assume some form of psychotherapy is now required to help me understand why I find such enjoyment from riding my Future Shock equipped bicycles.

Back to You Tube for me to see what else I need to learn.

Not really complicated. Same reason you don't see many 80 y.o.'s on a dropbar bike.

I'd put my Roubaix in the top two cycling purchases i've ever made, I love it, but each to their own. Rode mine the 20 miles to my local dealer this morning, will be ready for me to pick up on Friday when I'm back in the UK from a business trip. Against all the odds I didn't die, despite the slightly scary words in the announcement. Seems like Specialized are dealing with this pretty well.

I love my Diverge Comp. I've put over 2300 miles on it in the past 4 and a half months. After calling a couple of dealers this weekend, the basic story is that they have parts on order but have no idea when they'll start receiving them nor when they'd be able to get to my bicycle. It's more than a little frustrating to have spent a fair chunk of change on a bicycle that Specialized is advising I don't ride. I'm equally irritated that the selling dealer seems so unaffected, though I understand their hands a re a bit tied.

It sure calls into question the whole "LBS support" idea, I can tell you that!
