Road bike? Commuter bike? Gravel bike? Off-the-beaten-path bike? The Specialized Diverge Elite is all of the above. A lightweight “Smartweld” aluminum frame and a carbon, thru axle fork brings legit performance to whatever type of riding you’re getting into. 32mm tires and disc brakes bring comfort and control. The Diverge puts you in a similar position to the Roubaix, but opens up a lot of new road and trail opportunities. There are a ton of trails in the East Bay that a big, full suspension mountain bike would be overkill for, and a bike like the Diverge Elite gives you the ability to ride to the trail, ride the trail, and head on home, all without a car.
