Road bikes have been a large part of the cycling scene for years. Now with improved geometry that provides a better fit and safer ride, road bikes are making a strong surge again in sales. New in recent years are the new line of road type bikes called “Gravel Bikes.” These bikes have a relaxed frame geometry, longer wheelbase and accept a wider tire enabling the rider to ride roads, trails and gravel roads. Our fastest growing line of bikes last year was the new Specialized Diverge gravel bikes.
Specialized Allez: For speed-hungry road riders and racers looking for high performance and pro-level looks without the heavy price tag, there’s no better tool than the race-inspired Allez. It’s a fast, efficient, and lightweight bike that can take your riding to the next level. Not only does the Allez work well for the performance-driven aspiring criterium rider, it makes for a great winter training bike for the accomplished racer. It handles with precision and confidence, and packs a serious value.
Specialized Diverge A1: Roubaix-inspired Endurance Road geometry, FACT carbon fork with vibration-absorbing Zertz and mechanical disc brakes. The perfect bike when you don’t know what kind of surface you will be on. Diverge came out in fall of 2014 and already has out sold the other road models in our shop. Simply put with the 30 mm width tires you can ride this bike on the road, gravel roads or the Steamboat and Wabash Trace. Now you can ride on road & gravel and have the feel of a road bike beneath you.
Specialized Diverge Sport A1 Disc: Same bike as the base model Diverge but with new Shimano Sora 9 speed shifters and deraillers. Also comes with Tektro Spyre mechanical disc brakes. Great bike for road & gravel.

The high-value Compact features Shimano Sora 9 speed shifting, compact gearing and our new DT-Axis 1.0 wheels for improved efficiency over any terrain.
