Specialized S-Works Ruby SL - Road Bikes: Reviews

With its relaxed geometry, vibration-damping elastomer inserts, and highly engineered full-carbon frame, the Ruby is the most comfortable bike in our lineup. That was especially true during rides through the rolling terrain of Tuscany and on a climb to the top of Vermont's Ap Gap, which includes 14 percent grades and 1,500 vertical feet. The compact crankset takes some sting out of the climbs, and the one-piece Ruby Mac carbon bar and stem, which has a few degrees of adjustability, all but eliminates flex when you're standing on the pedals. 15 lbs; d4wgear.com
