Recommendation: Specialized Levo FSR 6fattie

Recommendation: Specialized Levo FSR 6fattie

"When designing the Turbo Levo FSR 6Fattie, we started by building a trail bike with all the hallmarks that our mountain bikes are known for, while streamlining the design for full integration of our Turbo technology. This means that you get a roomy top tube for an easy fit, ultra-short chainstays for nimble handling, and a low bottom bracket that makes the bike feel glued to the trail. Then comes the efficient and powerful Turbo technology, mating the battery and motor into the M5 frame in a new way. The exclusive, custom-tuned motor smoothly and quietly puts out up to 530 watts of additional power to the pedals  ... "

Review: Specialized Camber Comp Carbon 29 | BIKE Magazine

Review: Specialized Camber Comp Carbon 29 | BIKE Magazine
"SE: on anything less than S-Works, we are always trying to strike a balance between cost and performance. The Comp Carbon does a particularly great job by offering a good percentage of the performance of the S-Works, while greatly reducing cost via smart component spec, such as the same carbon front triangle used on the S-Works except with an alloy rear triangle. The same Roval Traverse wheels, except alloy instead of carbon. It's a tough package to beat for the price." Review: Specialized Camb...

First Ride - Specialized 'Suspension' Roubaix

First Ride - Specialized 'Suspension' Roubaix
"First ride on the new "suspension" Roubaix! So smooth I turned around right away to recheck the tubeless tires, thought they were low! This latest generation Roubaix is fast and climbs well, but most notably absorbs rough road like nobody's business! I found myself searching the road for bumps, trying to see how much it would help. The suspension in the handlebar did an amazing job taking away the shock and vibration of the road, and I couldn't feel it move while standing climbing. I need this ...

Specialized FatBoy - A True 4 Season Bike

Specialized FatBoy - A True 4 Season Bike
Paul and I were discussing the Specialized Fatboy this week. He's been riding the fat tire bike during the summer on our group rides and can keep up in general. In some conditions he has a bit of an advantage with superior traction in corners and off camber sections. As well, they're just fun to ride. His comment, "this is truly a 4 season bike." The possibilities are endless when riding the Fatboy. Specialized describes the FatBoy this way: "Fun-loving riders like you are looking for a bike for...

Specialized Stumpjumper FSR 650B Reviews

Specialized Stumpjumper FSR 650B Reviews
"After one ride on the all-new Stumpjumper FSR Expert Carbon 6Fattie, you'll never be riding trail again. It's a bold statement to make, but the increase in traction, control, and floatation that our 6Fattie Wheel System provides is nothing short of revolutionary. And then, of course, there's the rest of the bike. It features our FACT 9m carbon fiber for the bulk of the construction in order to provide an ultra-lightweight, strong, and stiff frame. The carbon molding process also allowed us to r...

5 Reasons to Buy a Specialized Camber 29er

5 Reasons to Buy a Specialized Camber 29er
In 1987, I purchased my first "mountain bike".  My hardtail consisted of flat handlebars, wide, knobby tires, and a triple crank.  I used that bike for all my riding needs after selling my 1986 road bike. My mountain bike provided lots of memories, good and bad including several trips over the handlebars (some of which I don't even remember), as well as tackling sections of the Waterdown Trail system with my two boys.  With this bike, I learned the following: How to scream quietly...
