    Excited! my new ride.

    The bike shop was having a blow out sale on all old bikes. I picked up this 13' Specialized Secteur sports disc for $799. $360 off asking price. I LOVE this bike and it feels like a rocket ship compared to my hard rock. Very comfortable.

    The only thing i was iffy on was it has 28mm tires on it right now. At 245lbs i was looking to get 35mm's for it. It has tons of room and i think theyll fit. One guy agreed with me and one didnt. They stood there and were bickering over it so i was like screw it gimme my bike ill go to universal cycles by my house and ask him. I know the 2014's come with 30mms with room left. What do you guys think.

    Dude, Major congratulations to you! Provided your wheel is sufficiently stiff, it's pretty safe to run within a few millimeters of the stay, I ran 52s in the back of my Straggler and I weigh 260. they never rubbed (Once I had a decent wheel in there) that being said. when I roll a 32 against a 52 the comfort loss is pretty minimal.

    What I am saying is. stuff away. I bet that thing could roll 38s without issue.

    Congrats!! That is a hell of a deal for that bike.
    The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.

    I'm a recent convert to Schwalbe Kojaks. They claim 35c but they're really 33c. They will probably fit.

    Also I've heard 38s fit in the Secteur disc, but having never tried I can't say for sure

    Man i gotta get used to shifting road bikes. after i bought it last night I threw my wife the truck keys and said Im riding home. lol

    Got me a little 25miler planned to break it in today.

    Ive been trying to find info online and Ive seen one with 33's and fenders. So hopefully 35's will fit.

    Can just buy a single from a shop with a good return policy. Doesn't fit, swap it.
    Or, email, call specialized and ask

    try the 28s for a while. Theyre big enough to take the edge off the larger hits & small enough to run high psi. good looking bike

    That is the same bike I ride. I would keep the 28 if I were you. I had the same discussion with my shop, and the guy said 28s should be fine for commuting. I even ride the cross course on this tires with no problem.

    Congratulations on the bike. I love mine. I can't see replacing for many many years, and I tend to be the kind of guy who replaces his bikes often.

    Yea everyone ive talked to said keep the 28's. I think its more of a mental thing being a clyde and not used to smaller tires.

    Ive put almost 80m on it so far and am loving it. I leave the house thinking im just going to run to the store and end up going way outta my way. lol

    Our trail system has added alot of these fix it stations that are really cool. pump, tools, etc. Hopefully people can respect them and not steal.

    Sweet new bike! Love the black and red combo. I also just bought a new bike and will be going from commuting with 38s on a mountain bike to 28s on a road bike and I'm a little nervous about it. I'll be interested to hear how you do with them.

    Also, that fix it station is probably the coolest thing I've seen on a MUP!
