Went to test ride a 54cm 2017 Roubaix today. Put in some early morning miles and got to the bike shop with 101 miles in, rode the bike a bit and bicycled back home finishing up with 121. Good day today.

How did the new shock absorbtion headset feel to you? Considering Specialized gave up the Zertz end on the front, and past front-end shocks like this have always failed (or failed to impress riders), to see Specialized jump on it makes me wonder.

Last Saturday I rode 60 miles on the Roubaix after 92 early morning miles. The ride was comfortable and fast. Tuesday was a 101 miler with the same results. I felt the absorption was a definite plus for handling comfort and took nothing away from the response during acceleration or cornering.

Sorry you had a 0.0 day and thanks for the B'day. Wish I had the Roubaix for the 202 mile "early" birthday ride yesterday.

35 miles

Started at 6 am, and it was 82. I finished at 8:30, and it was a humid low 90's already. Did the same Sunday, with lower humidity.

I hope it rains if it's going to be this humid today.
