A Bike Review, the 2018 Specialized Roubaix Expert, with SRAM Hydro eTap
By Fred Maggiore (The Practical Triathlete)
It has been nearly 25 years since I purchased a new road bike, actually longer, as 25 years ago I only bought a new McMahon titanium frame, stripping all the necessary parts of my older Diamondback Master TG bike that I did buy as a complete bike a few years prior. That’s not
to say that I haven’t owned a new bike or new frame since then, it’s just that those have been triathlon specific TT frames, optimized for riding in the
aerobars. The history of those bikes will be in another story, to keep this one short.
