Probably because the Roubaix is a man's bike - and men ride proper bikes....or something...
Its the neon yellow roubaix SL4.... already got some 6700 callipers to replace the Axis 1.0 that come with it... apart from the FSA gossamer crank, i think the wheels are the only weak point.
I think ( and this is so shallow ) that it was the yellow detailing on the Mavic that made it look like a 'louis Vuitton' handbag match.
Are the quattros really any good, they come far down the Fulcrum food chain in pricing? i have CeroAR30's on my Cube agree at the moment and IMHO they are fantastic, but i guess we are not looking at the same price range ( and they are 30mm, but thats irrelevant )....

There was also a rumour that they are Reynolds Carbon rims.
And coming back to the same thing, with the R2W scheme and our LBS we can pick up the Mavic Cosmic Carbone SLS for net cost of about £400 ( after all, wheels are just a 'bike' with a bit missing in the middle, and our company allows multiple vouchers ) and you get tyres ( not sure if any good ), bag and a free house cleaner with them...
