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

Purple Roubaix

I saw someone riding what appeared to be a Roubaix the other day but it was Purple? was this some floor model that he bought on clearance or are there limited edition colors we dont know about?

Specialized made a limited number in the purple frames, I think it was in 2009, which they used at shows and special events, and as Demos, and then sold them off at the end of the year. My wife has one too. Great looking frame.

I believe 2009 test bikes were purple. 2010 test bikes are red. Dunno about 2011.

That is correct, I got one, paid $2300 for it (instead of $3700).
Rides just like the white one :-)

Not the best color as far as trying to sell them, but I loved that color.
