I searched diligently for a new bike after deciding to get back into cycling after many years off. I read articles, test road models, talked to riders and shop owners and was consistently pointed toward the Roubaix. I ended up getting a 54cm SL4 Expert in the satin carbon / blue and could not be happier. It is unreal how much bikes have changed. My local LBS made the choice easy and set me up perfectly. The one drawback is the saddle comes standard in 143mm. I need a 155mm saddle and wish you could trade out for the correct size. Overall, I am extremely pleased with the bike and the components it came with. The money was well spent!
I got this bike in January 2014 to update my '09 Roubaix with a triple ring. It has a stiffer bottom bracket, lighter, easier Shimano Ultegra compact gearing -- much better when pounding uphill on fast club rides. I have 1000 miles on it. No complaints. My advice: Ask for a discount or trade up the wheels. The Fulcrum wheels that came with mine were cheaply made AND had defective welds.
46 yr old black man that live in Detroit, this bike reacts well, very comfortable ride, great quality, great looking bike as well, I do long ride 100+, great bike for those long rides, I love this bike
Happy about the bike on the road but carbon finish can be better. The bike color satin carbon.
I'm 71, 5'11"and 240 lbs. I ride 30 to 40 miles every other day year round in Colorado and Arizona. I had a 2000 LeMond triple crank that doesn't even come close to competing with this bike on comfort or easy of handling. The SL4 is a fantastic bike for me at my age and shape which isn't a bikers physique!
