    Looks like a good deal but it's got a tensioner, something of a half-arsed effort by Specialized in my opinion. If you're going to get a dedicated SS bike get one that was designed for it. Slapping a tensioner on a frame doesn't really cut it.

    Funny thing is...

    That bike has 425mm chainstays. You could run 32x18 and ditch the tensioner. If you hate SS put gears and a Der. on it. The part spec is not that bad.

    I agree, they're just trying to cash in on the SS movement with the least amount of trouble. Cheapskates.

    I wonder if you'd end up saving money if you bought a Hardrock Comp/Pro and sold all of the unused parts.
