Why buy a Specialized?

The frame is the single most important factor in a bike's ride quality. While there are many other components involved, the frame is what ties it all together and ultimately determines how well a bike rides. Specialized makes the highest quality, most sorted frame on the market. The fit and finish is excellent and they ride amazing.

Best Warranty

Specialized is confident with their quality and has one of the bike industry's best warranties out there. Frames and Roval wheels have a lifetime warranty and are transferrable to a subsequent owner, who then get 2 years from the original retail purchase date.
