Pushing the envelope (again)

Specialized never sit still. No matter how good their bikes are, they just keep making them better. Their 08 models should cement their reputation and standing at the top of the suspension bike market. Although I must say that I'm not overly keen on the new Stumpy's Enduro styled frame, but it's hard to argue with a 10.5kg (23.5lb) 120mm travel bike. Read about the new carbon model here.
There's also a Stumpy 29er, which I like the look of a little more. Read about it and the new Enduro here.
Then there's the new Tarmac and Roubaix. The Tarmac looks hot.
But the Roubaix will be my next road bike of choice. Not that I have a choice.
Read about the roadies here.

I have my eye on a new Tarmac. Might be next year's purchase. The guys at The Peddler and Knapp's are always pushing me toward a Roubaix but I am more comfortable with more of a racing setup.

Hopefully I will have some money leftover after ski season finishes. Unlike this year.

Personally, I think that the new stumpy FSR looks hot, hot, hot. That Enduro SL styled frame looks heaps better on this bike than it does on the enduro, and having more than a few inches of usable seat tube is a bonus too. Sick bike... that future shock fork is trick too.

Liking the Tarmac too... sleek.
