The Specialized Sequoia is back for 2017. Once a comfort oriented road bike, and before that, a light touring/sport road bike, the new Sequoia Elite is a thoroughly modern steel road bike that can handle everything from smooth pavement to the roughest roads. The thru axles and taped carbon fork provide plenty of stiffness for steep climbs, and the steel frame keeps the ride smooth when descending washboard type surfaces. Specialized created a new tire specifically for this model, the 700 x 42 Sawtooth, which provides ample grip on dirt as well as on pavement. Come try one out! This bike is too cool to not take for a ride.
