After Friday's post about Tire Size and Rolling Resistance, I figured that writing a blog about a bike that is capable of a little wider tire than most "road bikes" might come in handy. The 2015 Specialized Diverge has been a very popular model already and availability is limited right now but we have a full size run available in the Aluminum Sport A1 model and have some other sizes in the carbon models as well:
Whether it's dirt roads or navigating potholes on the road less traveled, the Diverge Sport can handle it all. With mechanical disc brakes, Shimano Sora 9-speed drivetrain, and tuned frame and fork it's only limited by your imagination.
- Specialized A1 Premium Aluminum frame is both stiff and compliant
- Specialized FACT carbon fork w/ Zertz for road chatter damping
- AXIS Classic Disc wheels for durable, all day performance
- Specialized Espoir Sport 700x30c tires w/ double BlackBelt protection for all conditions
- Shimano Sora, compact crankset for efficient power delivery and gearing options
- Tektro Spyre, mechanical disc brakes provide confident braking all day
- Shimano Sora STI shifters provide reliable and clean shifting performance
- Compatible with Specialized Plug + Play Fender Set
If you are a follower of the blog, you know that I am currently riding the Diverge Expert Carbon and am loving it. This bike is very much like the Specialized Roubaix but with thru-axles and wider tires it has the benefits that I was looking at for the type of riding that I do.
If you are in the market for a new bike and want something a little outside of the typical "road bike" frame style then you should stop in from 10-8 today and check out our line of Diverges. The weather will hopefully be breaking soon and now is the time to get the new bike set up for the sunny days that are sure to come!
