We Are A Specialized Dealer!
December 21, 2014
Charleston Bicycle Center is an authorized dealer of Specialized
Bicycles, and we are very excited to offer their bikes to our customers!
Specialized makes some of the best bikes on the planet, from full-suspension
mountain bikes to race-worthy road bikes.
Since 1974, Specialized has built a reputation of being on the frontlines
of product innovation. In the 1980's they were one of the pioneers
of mountain bike design and development, and they are still pushing
For 2015, Specialized has reinvented their race road bike, the Tarmac,
with an eye towards "Rider First Engineering". Standard practice
throughout the industry is to design road bikes in the most common size,
and then scale up or down to maintain the geometry in other sizes.
They found by riding different sizes of the same bike that they had different
characteristics, so they have sought to correct the discrepancies by
designing a Tarmac in every size to ensure they all had the same feel.
This is just one example of Specialized breaking out of standard industry
practices to make a top-notch product.
In addition to a fantastic line of bikes, Specialized also produces
great apparel, shoes, helmets, tires, and accessories. Check out
