    2005 Roubaix S-Works w/SRAM Force

    I just built up my Roubaix S-Works with SRAM Force Derailleurs, Brakes and shifters.
    So far system shifts well with DA 27-12 cassette, DA Chain and FSA Compact Cranks.

    Sweet S-Works Roubaix! I keep looking at this 2006 at the LBS, but have a hard time justifying the $5500 price tag! I'm still happy with my '04 Roubaix Pro, though.

    My 2006 Allez. I use it for commuting and just getting out and riding. I'm thinking of making it a bit more dedicated to commuting (panniers/rack) and picking up something a bit more high-end for weekend rides and tours.

    here's mine, '04 Specialized S-Works new this year, was new old stock frameset that I built up with the following:
    Fork: Specialized Carbon
    Headset: FSA Orbit Carbon
    Wheelset: Easton Vista SL
    Crankset: FSA SLK Carbon MEGAEXO
    Shifters: Campagnolo Centaur 10spd
    Front Derailleur: Campagnolo Chorus 10spd
    Rear Derailleur: Campagnolo Centaur 10spd
    Brakes: Campagnolo Centaur 10spd
    Cassette: Campagnolo Veloce 10spd 12-25
    Chain: Campagnolo Veloce 10spd
    Handlebars: FSA RD-250
    Stem: FSA OS-140
    Seatpost:Specialized Carbon
    Saddle: Fizik Arione

    Unfortunately I can't afford some of these Ksyrium SL's or Campy Record components that you all have but this definintely does the job.

    Here's my latest aquisition. I bought it to replace my Litespeed Tuscany. It's an '06 Tarmac Pro S-Works.

    Full DuraAce
    S-Works - Saddle, Post, Bar, & Stem
    Mavic Kysrium ES Wheels

    It's the smoothest bike I have ever ridden, and super stiff.

    My 06 Roubaix-before and after

    Here is my 06 Roubaix Elite with full Ultegra 10 upgrade 11-05 and then after bad crash on 10-06. My LBS is currently evaluating a frame replacement for it and, judging from what I've read about Specialized cust. service, I'm cautiously optimistic...

    Hi Sonic,
    I was cruising thru a freeway underpass in Phoenix and must've hit the grate at the bottom in a way that made my rim get stuck, cause when I came to Phoenix firemen were putting me in an ambulance along with what you see is left of my bike. The stuck rim must have stopped my bike dead and I went thru it into the ground, striking helmet first (thank you, God) then face cause I lost a layer of skin off my nose. I had a few lacerations on my face, possibly some facial fractures and a pretty good concussion. Below the neck, though, just some road rash and a pretty good bruise on my collarbone. All in all, I feel I was pretty lucky, unlike my bike. The guys at the LBS said Specialized will probably replace the frame at a substantial discount, if I choose to. I've been kind of thinking about switching back to aluminum, like a Giant OCR, but it wouldn't have made any difference in this case.
    At any rate, this is as good a reminder to anybody why a helmet can save yer life, cause I would surely be in a coma now, or worse if not for my Louis Garneau Oro T-bone helmet.

    Yikes. Glad you're doing ok.

    That's all I can come up with to say. Yikes

    Yep, that's blood. The fireman probably grabbed the bike after handling me and got the blood all over it. Should've cleaned that off before I took it down to the LBS but they didn't seem to mind.

    Dang, Sandman, that is a horrible crash - looking at the spectacular carbon failure result of your bike, you are indeed lucky to be walking around. I've never seen a downtube snap in half like that, they usually come apart at the join like what the top tube did. Hope you reported the death-trap grate to the City/County/Whoever!!!

    Glad you made it out relatively ok. How much damage did your helmet take? Got any pics?

    Thanks. Helmet was cracked in the front (see red line in pic) and kind of filed off from the impact. I could get a crash replacement from Louis Garneau but I think I'll just consider it $50 well spent.

    I think about 20 mph or faster, since it was downhill thru the underpass.

    Wow and some people here say they average 30+ mph or faster. I hope those people don't crash else they might not be so luck, I would imagine.

    I remember reading a post where someone claimed they went 100 mph!!! I hope no one goes that fast, but of course, it's their choice, no?
