Specialized Globe Centrum Elite IG3



Performance Urban/Utility
ROAD RAGER. Part adventure, part performance and altogether perfect for dodging traffic jams while exploring every inch of the city, the new Globe Centrum™ takes the predictability out of your daily commute.Inside Tech
The Globe Centrum is a totally new breed of commuter bike. One that's both aggressive and simple. That kind of versatility requires certain design details, such as super low standover height and light weight for maximum maneuverability in stop-and-go traffic, plus an internally geared hub and disc brakes for unimpaired urban performance.

Tried this out at my LBS (a large, rather nicely stocked shop that primarily deals in Specialized and Electra) yesterday. The Centrum IG3 or Sport was already on my short list, for my rather short daily commute. After the test ride, this has certainly crept up on my short list. I was able to climb hills similar to the ones that will be on my commute relatively simply, bikes felt nice and responsive, and relatively fast. Of course, it's been ages since I've been on a bike, much less a non-Walmart one... so it may be that I'm simply easily impressed. So, I'll definitely be checking some others out in my area.
