Trans-America Race Bikes - 2015 Specialized Diverge Comp Smartweld

If you followed us on Facebook at all the past couple of days you would have seen that I have been posting some photos of a buddy racing the Trans-America.  I figured today wrapping up the discussion with a bike that could help carry you across 'Merica in a bit more comfortably with wider tires but still is not your typical "Touring" bike, more like Endurance Race Machines.  Today we are continuing with the 2015 Specialized Diverge Comp Smartweld:

When the paved road stops the Diverge Comp Smartweld is just getting started. Whether it's dirt roads or navigating potholes on the road less traveled, the Diverge Comp Smartweld can handle it all. With hydraulic disc brakes, Shimano 105 drivetrain, and tuned frame and fork it's only limited by your imagination.
  • Specialized E5 Premium Aluminum w/ D'Aluisio Smartweld technology, tapered headtube, OSBB
  • Specialized FACT carbon fork for precise handling and steering
  • AXIS 3.0 Disc wheels designed for lightweight performance and durability
  • Specialized Roubaix Pro 700x30/32c tires w/ BlackBelt protection and Endurant casing for any road condition
  • Turn Zayante, BB30 crankset offers bulletproof performance and shifting
  • Shimano 785 hydraulic disc brakes w/ Ice Tech resin pads for supreme stopping power
  • Shimano 685 integrated hydraulic shift levers for crisp shifting and braking
  • Compatible with Specialized Plug + Play Fender Set

You might be wondering about the Road Disc Brakes and my personal feelings are that if you are going to be doing a ride of this magnitude you are going to want some brakes that can handle crappy weather and steep descents.  Yes, Rim Brakes are a viable option and the Roubaix has models with those as well, but I am a mountain biker at heart and really enjoy the feel of the hydraulic road disc brakes personally.

MSRP is $2,700.00 and if you are interested in learning more about this bike stop by the shop today from 10-8.  We can discuss storage options for carrying gear on the road, gears that would work carrying you up and over 4 different mountain ranges and also the flat lands of the mid-west and beyond area.
