    Have you tried the SL6? Aero and light weight, and noticeably more comfortable than the SL5 while basically improving all the SL5's handling characteristics.

    There are e bikes too but those kind of defeat the purpose to for me.

    OP, you sound like you have a lot of money.
    I am pretty satiated on the bike front.
    Could you buy me a 2019 Porsche Cayenne?

    Too many trim accents inside. Looks too 90's. I'll pass.

    Why spend all your (or my) money on a fancy Volkswagen?

    Tongue in cheek on the thread, but I do like the looks of that SL6. I have a SL5 that I love, but I've heard great things about the SL6.

    With those bikes, I really like that the fully integrated proprietary brakes are strategically located where wheel flex is minimal. It really reduces brake rub, as well as helps me achieve a near-zero drag coefficient for maximum aerodynamic efficiency.
    Adding to that, the FACT 11r carbon frame features fully internal cable routing, that's amazing! It's truly Rider-First Engineered™ and provides consistent performance across the entire size range.
    Yet another thing this to consider is the amazing S-Works crankset! It features the highest quality carbon construction. I can really feel the lightweight power transfer, while I also appreciate the fully integrated ANT+ compatible Quarq power meter.
    You know what I can't believe? The bike comes with the Roval CLX 64 wheelset. The ultimate in speed and performance. Optimized for both head- and crosswinds, the CLX 64 wheelset is tubeless-ready and features a 21mm internal rim width for enhanced traction, minimal rolling resistance, and improved aerodynamics. I seem to recall that the Roval CLX 64 wheels are produced under license from Hed Cycling to US Patent No 8,888,195.
    Lastly, you know what I need... the FACT carbon for, obviously! It drastically reduces aerodynamic drag, while still providing me incredible stiffness and steering response for my all out efforts and twisting descents.

    Why by a Specialized? If your nearest dealer sells them I guess. My nearest one does. 5 blocks further to the next dealer of some other brands is too much effort.
