The new Specialized Sequoia is a new incarnation of an old favorite. Some loved the older versions some hated the look. They crossed the world of touring bike and drop bar hybrid. The new ones are pretty to look at, for sure. Its unusual to see steal in the Specialized line up again, they now have 2 model with steel frames (not including a special release allez), thanks to a character named Eric Nolan. I don’t think that I am the only one that is pumped about what he is bringing to the big red S. Some people think its strange that they are bringing this to the market a little late in the game, but they seem to do the research before releasing a bike to the public. Along with the Sequoia they are releasing some new adventure baggage, and a new tire.
Bikepacking.com has a great write up about the new offerings.
As great as the bike looks, I think I still want an AWOL over this.
