Really excited to add a second bike to the stable, a 2012 Specialized Roubaix SL3. As per usual, I built the bike as a budget build, spending under $700 all in. There’s nothing wrong with spending a lot of money on the latest and greatest bikes, but you don’t need to drop a ton of cash to build up a bike that will suit your needs. I got the frame ($300), bars ($75), crank ($35), and derailleurs ($42) from, the shifters off of eBay ($110), the seat post from Kijiji ($30), the wheelset, pedals, stem, and brakes from my parts bin, and then brought everything to D’Ornellas to put together for me.
