When two roads diverge in the woods, and you promptly forget the road and head out in search of some dirt, Specialized's Diverge Expert and you are going to have some very fun times. The carbon frame Diverge Expert rolls on lightweight Axis 4.0 wheels and 700x30/32c Specialized Roubaix Pro tires, so you'll float over potholed tarmac and laugh at poorly maintained gravel roads. On or off road, Shimano's Ultegra drivetrain sports 22 fast-shifting speeds and all the reliability you've come to expect from their benchmark road gruppo. Shimano's disc brakes are on board for precision stopping regardless of conditions. For long-ride comfort, the Diverge also includes a Ti-railed Body Geometry Phenom saddle, gel-padded bar tape, and Specialized's CG-R carbon seatpost to make every mile feel amazing, no matter which road you choose.

Excellent all around bicycle. Does just about anything that you can ask of a bike. Great on unpaved surfaces, gravel and paved roads. It's not really a racing bike, but I got it up to pretty good speeds on the flats. The addition of disk brakes makes what is a really good bike, into a fantastic bicycle, capable in just about any situation. If you can afford it - my recommendation is to buy it. These things are in short supply, as it appears that Specialized may have been caught off guard regarding the demand for this type of bicycle. So if you can find one - buy it. It really is the bicycle of my youth, that I could take just about anywhere and have a lot of fun doing it. I'm 57 years old and have ridden a lot of bikes, but this one is the best one ever... I can't race anymore... but I still love to bike.
