First off, I’d like to start off thanking those of you who chimed in with thier thoughts and recommendations regarding throwing upgrades at my 07 S-Works. Much appreciated! Yesterday, I spent nearly the entire day demoing bikes of different flavors.... Cannondales, Trek EX and Specialized. The shop let me hit up some of the paved bike paths around town. The paths had a few inclines, decents, etc, just enough to give me an idea on the 1x11 drivetrain characteristics. Any how, I kept coming back to the ‘18 Specialized Camber Comp model. At the $2500 price point, it had the slightly better components and it just felt comfortable (to me anyway). I rode this bike for about 1-1.5hr. This was the shop’s last 2018 model and they had it marked down to $2000 for thier 4th sale. In addition to the $500 mark down, they offered another small discount to me which basically covered the sales tax.... SOLD! Once I got it home, I put a 720mm carbon bar on, some “Chester” flat pedals and a beefy 2.6 front tire!
