Well howdy guys from across the pond, Just a small intro I've just got into the road cycling scene having been on the MTB trail for some time, but having looked around these seems to be the only decent road bike site that has any type of write up on the 'specialized' bikes..
But here is the n00bie question.. from your site you do have the specialized triple which is the 06 model but as we are taking new delivery of 07 models im unsure if its the same bike as im getting over here called the 'specialized 07 24 bike'
The reason i ask is that a lot of people complain about the wheels/tyres on standard fitting and if they are dodgy is it worthwhile getting them changed before i leave the shop..
But here are my full specs of my soon to own bike what you think..
