Adding to that, the Diverge features oodles of tire clearance, rolling on 700x30c Specialized Espoir tires that float over rough roads and gravel. The 20-speed Shimano Tiagra drivetrain provides dependable shifting, and the Tektro Spyre mechanical disc brakes delivers solid stopping power.

First time I have ever spent more than $300 on a bike and well worth it! Such a comfortable and smooth ride, except on bumpy roads, but what do you expect? Using it for fun and a few 30+ mile road trips.
I ride 7 miles each way to work. Great ride, love the Tiagra groupset. After 3 weeks I changed the tires to more flat resistant ones. This big question is this: "Is it worth the extra money to step up from the A1?" The answer is a resounding yes! I think the difference in the ride is night and day. Believe it or not, I think it actually feels better than the 2 carbon-frame models I rode.
Love my new Diverge DSW Elite, definitely worth the extra few bucks over the A1's. Two flats in first 30 miles... Suspect the tires need an upgrade to Kevlar belted, but that is all I could fault with it.
i really enjoy the ride.
