The 2017 Specialized Roubaix & Ruby
Fall is the perfect season for logging miles. The conditions are near perfect and you can't beat the scenery. For those riders looking to experience the open road, the new Specialized Roubaix and Ruby models make light work of long days in the saddle. The all new future shock design adds 20mm of suspension to the front end, soaking up every bump in the road without compromising performance and handling. The redesigned models also add a 20mm rearward arcing suspension design, complementing the 18mm of suspension already built into the Cobble Gobbler seatpost. In layman's terms, the ride is plush - perfect for pounding the pavement without it pounding you. These models start around $2600.
Planning for fall adventure? The Salsa Marrakesh is the perfect bike to get you there and carry all your stuff. Salsa's platform for 'world-touring' is designed for comfortable, confident, all-day riding. Load it up with all your camping supplies and head down the Capital Trail to Chickahominy State Park for an overnight or weekend vacay. The Marrakesh comes in drop bar or flat bar options and the stock bike includes a Brooks saddle and Salsa Alternator Rack ready to haul up to 60 pounds of fun. The Marrakesh starts at $1599.
