    2014 Specialized road bikes

    The 2014 specialized road bikes have been unveiled (most of them anyway). The stars of the show are the Venge and the Roubaix with Hydraulic disk brake, you cannot not want one

    All the tarmacs now are sl4 design, guess 2015 will be the year of the SL5.

    The S Work Allez is back, rumored to be with dura ace.If they plan on selling that over 6k,it will probably will be limited (rightfully so,when a certain cheaper caad10 is available)

    I always thought the secteur was an unworthy imitation of the roubaix,i hope this one is smoother.

    And last, the Swork Shiv with dura ace di2.Ok this one is beyond my reach What do you guys think of the 2014 models?

    Not too crazy about the paint. I still really like the black/red 2012 Tarmac Pro.

    I really liked the 2013 color schemes. there's really no 'lust' factor with anything I've seen with the '14 designs. Specialized has some creative issues with their paint concepts...

    I sure like this one. It reminds me of my Tarmac Pro SL I had a few years ago. It think this will be my next bike in a couple of months.

    Kind of a lame 2014 for Spesh. Basically the only thing they changed is adding discs to the S-works Roubaix instead of just the Pro. I was waiting to see discs on the Tarmac and an updated Venge.

    And who cares about hydro rim brakes except for Cavendish? I wouldn't be paying extra for them. Give me the new electronic/hydro Ultegra with discs on the Tarmac and I'm sold.

    In my opinion 2012 had the best color schemes. Some years are good, some are bad;I guess 2014 is the latter.

    Very clean looking, I dig it. It has Force 22 as well.

    I agree.

    BTW gio, just because someone other than C'dale uses blue and green color schemes doesn't make it Liquigas. There's no copyright infringement going on here.

    Just turned 40,this is the year to bring home an Sworks

    Still trying to decide wich color I like best but yes,it seems to me that Specialized missed the point a bit on this for 2014.

    Black Tarmac still a bad@ss bike but I'm afraid I may get burned out soon by a Batman bike. On the opposite the bumblebee one looks stunning but takes away the bad@ss aura the Tarmac frame has. Ah,decisions decision decision. Not sure if Italy will see the bumblebee version either...

    Love my 2013 Venge but I think the new Aerofly handlebars may have to be fitted.




    Have seen images of Speedzone clip coming off the centre of the handlbar/stem as well.

    Damn, those bars look awesome. Plus the internal cable routing is genius. I'll assume the stem mounting area is wide enough for my K-edge garmin mount...

    Edit: Nevermind, no way a light is fitting on the bars. Guess I'd have to switch to a helmet mount?

    It does look a lot like the Zipp Vukasprint. I use those bars and have a K-edge Garmin mount on it.

    You're able to fit the k-edge garmin mount on the Vuka Sprint bar?
    Can you please post a pic? Thanks

    Thanks. What stem are you running? I have the s-works stem and am hoping it will have enough room on the bar for the k-edge mount.

    Dang it! I guess I'll have to go to my lbs and see if the s-works stem will work. It's now between the vuka sprint or this new specialized carbon aero fly.

    Internal routing on bars is a miss.
