    2010 Specialized wheels....tubeless...and more

    For 2010, specialized is doing something really cool with all of the DT and Roval wheels (this is not new for Roval though) they are all coming pre-taped from the factory to be tubeless, and the tubeless valve stems are coming in all the parts boxes I thought this was pretty darn cool and exciting. All you need to do is pull your tube, install the stem throw in your favorite tubeless brew and you are good to go!

    One more thing, A LOT more of the product that comes on Specialized bikes are going to be available aftermarket, like forks, bars, etc....

    And, they are offering Carbon Comp models on some bikes that hit a sweet price point.

    As long as they don't have s-works tires on them the tubless deal is pretty cool.

    Actually most of FSR and Stumpy hardtail models dropped significantly in price, and the trickle down technology on the bikes makes their pricing pretty darn aggressive.

    Lower pressure.

    Try the S-Works tires tubless with low pressure. Around 25 p.s.i. However this doesn't work for everybody. Some people are just way harder on tires then others.
    You can also try S-works up front and Control in the rear. If your looking to lite-n up. The rear just seams to get more abuse.

    Yeah

    2004 S works epic $4000 @ msrp.
    2009 S-works epic $8800 @ msrp.
    2010 S-works epic _____ @ msrp


    I left you a blank to fill in.


    Seriously I think its a good idea to send the bikes tubeless ready as most riders are riding them tubeless. I just think bike prices need to chill out a little. Its a bike not a freaking space shuttle.

    It does seem the industry has jumped prices too fast in the last few years. I hope they stablize soon. Just my .02
