Check the press surrounding Boonen’s bike in Belgium, like paparazzi chasing the look of a starlet.

The 2nd weekend in April is famous for many reasons and Boonen is part of the legacy. This Roubaix, the Hell of the North, will be his last and Specialized built him a special bike.

Everybody wants to see it.

Boonen will sit on a regular seat post and removed the storage compartment, also, rim brakes.

Me too and I’m sure it’ll end up in the lobby Spesh’s Morgan Hill HQ.

Watch the edit and read about what it’s like to be there.

My daily shooter is Sony a9 with a vertical grip and various Sigma lenses attached like the 14mm 1.4 Art. Find more recommendations on our store page. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
