Description

There’s a feeling people get when everything just clicks on a ride, and the Specialized Roll Elite is a bike that pulls it all together for you. Take it out on a bike path—dirt or paved—and enjoy the smooth, efficient ride afforded by the lightweight A1 aluminum frame and unique Ground Control Positioning, which puts you in a more upright ride position and provides maximum comfort while keeping your back and neck feeling fine. Cruise with the confidence and stability of the stable 650b wheels, wrapped in wide, cushy 2.3 inch tires. The hill-topping 24-speed Shimano drivetrain makes sure you enjoy easy spinning up steep hills, and let's you go fast if the mood strikes. Ride longer thanks to the Body Geometry science that’s gone into saddles, grips, and pedals that keep you comfortable for mile-after-mile. Get out there, get active, and feel it for yourself.

Arthritis has taken its toll. Hands wrists and neck can't handle the pounding or the angle of my old Trek(loved it tho) mountain bike. Since we've moved to SW FL I thought a "cruiser" type would be perfect for us. These bike can go many miles in comfort...hence the name Roll. This is a tight precision bike built for comfort. Very pleased with our choice.
