The bike works well. Shifting is ok, ride is a bit nicer than I expected and rolls pretty well after initial break in. Breaking could be improved though. On a bike rated for heave riders I would expect some braking power. These inexpensive BB5's fail to perform. This is the main reason for my average rating. Brakes will have to be upgraded. It is however heavy and sluggish compared to my Tarmac Comp. I purchased this for a winter/gravel/bad weather bike and it will do nicely for that. Trying to keep up on a fast club/group ride however will test your will. Gearing is short on the top end and bike does not respond quickly to attacks. The extra weight really shows when climbing. Great entry level road bike that is very capable and stable. handling is greatly improved by removing spacers and getting the front end down a bit. Beautiful seams and finish you would expect from Specialize. She's a looker for sure that will stand out. If left anywhere unattended it might not be there when you get back.
I just picked up the Secteur Elite C2 Disc, this is my first road bike in 30 year's. What a difference from my 1970's Raleigh Firebird. It handles like a dream and goes like stink. I am 5' 5" and got the 49 cm frame and it fit's perfectly. and love the disc brake's. I was trying to decide between the Elite disc and the Sport disc, I liked the colors of the Sport better, but my LBS suggested for the $200.00 difference I would get much better component's and now that I have the Elite the color's are growing on me. try out this bike you won't regret it.
