Release cycle would typically indicate that 2019 is the year for a new Roubaix, then Sagan drops this little gem via Instagram...

Given the stem spacer height, and the preference to ride mechanical in the classics (which this bike is set for). This could be the 2019 Roubaix under some “camo” paint.

big improvement over the current ugly duckling. current sales of the roubaix are not good.

Interesting elongation of the seatpost clamp area vs the rest of the ST. Could there be some sort of rudimentary sprung seatpost implementation?

That's explains why I didn't understand he was on a Diverge ;)

I think the storage compartment in the current bike ruins the look of the bike.

Also, the marketing for the Roubaix is pretty bad. I see it less of a 'slightly comfortable pro-level race bike' and more of a 'relaxed geometry bike for people too soft to ride a race bike and for old people that want to do long, slow miles in their local century or RAGBRAI'. I think we all know the bike Sagan is riding will always be more aggressive than what you can get off the shelf. Like the old Roubaix's that used to be tarmacs with zerts molded into the fork and seat stays.

Looks like a black tarmac to me...

Or is the new design so similar?

Looks very good, howver I have reached the conclusion that I will never buy another road bike that possesses a mechanical suspension feature. I think the consumer does not benefit, and may end up bearing an unnecessary burden of maintenance, noise, failure, and weight. I would much rather have a solid carbon frame with adequate ride comfort as part of the integral design of the frame and fork. If additional comfort is required, I would rather achieve it with tire choice and tire pressure. Pros are welcome to ride such designs in Paris Roubaix - I love to see all the suspension tech innovation. Just not on my bikes.

I participated in a road race on Sunday and would have liked a Roubaix or Domane with 32mm tires. The roads were horrible... I hit a pothole with my tubeless tires at 75psi and got a "snakebite" puncture. Rider behind me flatted at the same time.

It looks like a Tarmac hit with an ugly stick.

Indeed.. That sestpost/seatstay/downtube Junction is next level bad.
I'm sure the suspension built in there is great but it's almost a afterthought. Take a tarmac and add some suspension.

Seems that there is dampening also in the seatpost clamp? Aero and comfort?
