New Bike Day for a Mid-life Cyclist

I bought my first Specialized (Roubaix) back in 2008 at Albrecht's Cycles in Sioux City, Iowa. I bought it to train for my first RAGBRAI (2010) and rode it again in RAGBRAI "L" (2023). It has been a long time coming but the wait is over with my purchase of a 2023 Tarmac SL7 Expert just yesterday. The whole experience was first rate from the expert service at Indian Cycle & Fitness, Ridgeland, MS to the test ride. The bike is light, responsive, and gorgeous. I was holding back on purchase waiting for a higher grade drive train but one test drive with the SRAM Rival set up was all it took for me to make the decision to purchase. Shifting is so easy and quite that you hardly notice. As they say, Life is short...so buy a Tarmac SL7 and make your rides shorter too.

Recent Purchase

I just got this bike last week to replace a 10 year old Tarmac that was a great bike. Not the least bid disappointed. This bike rides like a dream. Very fast. I was concerned about getting used to the new components, blue tooth shifting. It took me about ten minutes to love it. First ride, Shelby Farms Greenway in Memphis.

Responsive and Light

Bought without any regrets. Fast and smooth roll which is also great for hill climbs. Everything good about the bike as it is an all rounder for use especially in City roads with hill climbs. Stylish and motivates me to want to ride even more. Very fine piece of design as well.

Would Recommend?
Yes!
