    I have a Ruby Expert. I can't remember if it's 05 or 06. I love it. I nearly bought a Tricross when I was shopping for an "all around" bike. There are currently 8 bikes in my home (four for me and four for my sig other) and 3 of them are Specialized.

    I have an 05 Hardrock Sport:


    And my baby, the 06 Dolce Elite:


    Since I bought the Dolce, I haven't been on the Hardrock. I was looking at it yesterday thinking I should take it to the trail for a ride. And yes, I do have different helmets to match each

    Aicabsolut and Bluetree, how are s-works compared to the other carbon/ultegra bikes. I was debating on one, but decided to get the Roubaix instead. Big difference in price...

    I had a 2005 Dolce Comp, but I sold it to a friend. Before I moved, I still got to ride with it (if not on it)!

    I also have a 1993 Rockhopper. LOVE that bike even though it's so old. I bought it new and it's never failed me - still 100% original everything on it, too (except saddle).

    Sorry, I couldn't tell you because there are not many bikes in my size (44cm) I could ride and compare it with. The only other ride I've had significant experience with is my Pinarello, but the geometry is so different it's apples and oranges.

    I do know the S-Works Ruby is different from the rest of the Ruby line in one aspect: an oversized bottom bracket shell. It's very snappy. I believe the type of carbon used is lighter as well, which suits a climbing bike. (I bought it because it was the only 2007 model that was available as a frameset, not a complete bike)

    The S-works frame is amazing. So much lighter than the Comp frame. Even more comfy. FAST. I can't say enough about how awesome this frame is compared to Comp level. Would you notice it as much between Pro and S-works? I dunno.

    I still have the crappy Shimano wheels on there too, because I spent my race wheels budget on the new frame when the old one broke (long story...I couldn't get/didn't want to wait on a crash replacement frame...). I think the new frame is a better improvement than new wheels would've been on the old frame. Now I just need some Zipps on this baby!
