I have something similar and it's great. Been riding it for 10+ years. But heck, I didn't pay full price. This is a lot!

Great price for a DI2 bike. I ride a 61cm BMC, and also have a 61cm Specialized, and I'm 6'3". I wish the wheelset was better, but that's too much to ask for I guess Smilie .

For Di2 do you have to manually tune the gears like on normal shifters? Only thing I can't do is tune damn gears, so annoying.

There's no tuning once they've been set up unless you replace something and the alignment is off. If you're struggling with gear setup though I'd recommend a few youtube videos... here's a good example:-

A well maintained mechanical setup can work just as well as these Di2 systems, it will just require occasional maintenance. In this case the Di2 Ultegra typically costs about $750 more than the mechanical equivalent and weight a little more too once you add cabling and batteries.

worth mentioning this is a 2019 version of the bike, and I believe before a major redesign in 2020. I think the 2021 version (minor change, probably just color) is close to release, so this would be 2 models old now. Normally a model a couple years old would sell at 15% off easily at the local bike shop but thats not happening this year.

Absolutely love my 2009 Roubaix. Bought it used, and am about to hit 20,000 miles on it. Roubaixs are considered "endurance road bikes", which is a variety that tilts a little more towards comfort over speed. Hopefully if you're planning to spend more than 2k on a bike, you already know this.

I have the exact bike in the matte black/hyper green. Bought it from my LBS last year when Specialized ran a rebate deal on the Roubaix, so it was basically the same price. So not the best deal.

It's a great bike, extremely comfortable for long rides but also responsive for an endurance bike, not as huge a wheelbase or tall of a stack like some in the category. Rode Seattle-to-Portland 2019 in 1 day averaging 20 mph, no problems whatsoever.

Not many people are going to be able to fit the sizes available though.
