Thanks to Specialized's FACT carbon frameset and its vibration-damping Zertz inserts, you'll ride further and more comfortably than ever on the velvety-smooth Roubaix SL4 Sora! You'll love how the Specialized Axis wheels spin up to speed effortlessly, and the quick-shifting 18-speed Shimano Sora drivetrain that flattens the climbs. Plus, Specialized's plush Body Geometry seat and choice components invite you to add more miles to every ride.
I recently updated from a Hybrid to a Road bike. I did a lot of research prior to purchasing the bike I wanted. I always had in mind going to carbon but the budget did not allow. I came back to megacycle, where I bought my Hybrid (Canondale Quick 4) and I found this bike on sale. Wow, light, great looks, great price. This bike has improved my avg speed, I have put in about 400 miles into it already. Very comfortable, fast, smooth. The bike is just great. It has Sora which is not an issue to me at this point, it is pretty smooth. I would definitely recommend to my friends and anyone who wants a great carbon started. Take in consideration it is Specialized
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
