Details

Specialized's Ruby Compact balances comfort with speed and stability. The secret is Specialized's super-light, comfortable FACT 8r-carbon frame with a full-carbon fork up front — a stellar setup that gets up to speed effortlessly, handles like a dream and also takes the sting out of rough roads for ride-all-day fun. Plus, this roadster boasts a wide-range Shimano drivetrain with a hill-flattening crankset with smaller rings. You'll also love the easy-rolling DT Swiss wheels and Specialized's women's-specific components like the awesome Body Geometry seat.

Specialized's women's bikes make every ride a blast!

To optimize fit, pedaling efficiency, comfort and control, Specialized tailors the geometry and components on their women’s bikes to feminine physiques. The frames are engineered with smaller-diameter tubes to decrease weight and increase compliance. Shorter top tubes provide a perfect fit and greater stand-over height on small frames allows for easy on/off. And, for a truly custom feel, Specialized includes small-diameter grips, narrow handlebars and women's saddles that make every ride more fun and comfortable than you could ever imagine.

    Comments:

    I am a new cyclist, so I am classifying myself as "recreational," but this bike is making me want to go fast! This is my first road bike. I have stayed away from cycling because I thought it would be too uncomfortable, but I can tell you I was wrong!! I took this bike out on its first ride for a good 50 miles. I was still feeling energetic and ready to go at the end. It is a very comfortable bike over the bumps, steady downhill going fast and it takes off effortlessly. It was very easy to put on speed to pass even when I was already going at a good clip. It felt awesome to overtake people who looked like old pros.
