edited July 2017 in Road buying advice
i am looking for a new bike, endurance based and i would strongly consider a roubaix. however i believe they are all disk brakes now and i really only want rim. does anyone know of anywhere still selling older stock? i am 6'3" so need a big frame! cheers

    How about the Trek Domane/Ridley Fenix/Canyon Endurace; same sort of geometry

    Bold move, half of the PRO peloton are on Specialized, so it will be interesting to see what they ride next week... it will be even more interesting should the UCI backtrack again on discs

    well i a certainly looking at a new bike now. the 2018 roubaix range still has all disk models. which i find bizarre with not a single rim option. the canyon endurace has been eliminated as from what i can tell it is more shorter top tube then taller top tube. domain s 5 are a little discounted but very limited on the largest sizes! scott solace 20 is a nice looking option, cube attain gtc seems a good value option. the synapse is a decent option as i have a caad 8 so i like cannonade generally but limited stock on sizes there too. bianchi intenso would be a bit sexy
