I think people are running to get on that list.

Like the color, but never double-wrapped myself- what about it is hard?

Do you really need a double wrap with the Lizard Skin bar tape? Or is it not to soften up the feel, but more to get a "fatter" bar, like Boonen (used to?) put a hose around his bars?

Yeah its the fatter feel, it just makes all the difference on 5+hr rides, especially on cobbles...

I love the looks of this bike and I generally don't like Specializeds.
The lizard skins comes in a thicker 2.5mm tape that I have on my bike and it is really cushy. No need to double wrap. I like the thicker bar wrap as well particularly with fairly big hands (though really how much does it add).

i agree, i am not a fan of specialized either but this one really has a very nice balance + character to it! :thumbup:
(even has a euro look to it which i love)

hows the 19mm front and 23mm rear working out...good and the bad please! (i may consider a set up like that myself too)

You, fine sir, must either be in a very good place, or in a terribly bad situation, in which case you better seek help immediately.

And as regards your physical condition, all the best for a swift recovery.

Well that's kind of the problem with having injuries isn't it?
