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.

Only 5 today, but that's 5 better than zero.

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.

38.8 miles, 2620 elevation gain.

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.
