You'll love the responsive, nimble handling of Specialized's Rumor FSR Comp 650B. Every component of the bike, from the handlebars to the crankarm length, is tailored to both women and rider size. And just as importantly, the lightweight M5 aluminum frame features Women's 650B Trail Geometry, with it's low standover height, to create a roomy, responsive, and confidence-inspiring ride. A Rockshox Revelation fork and a custom-tuned Fox Float CTD shock combine to trounce rough terrain, while a SRAM 2 x 10-speed drivetrain and Shimano Deore brakes give you speed and power at your fingertips. Finished out with an excellent Body Geometry Myth saddle, every aspect of the Rumor was scrutinized and tuned for women who want to shred.
Specialized's FSR suspension offers plush travel, incredible control, unbeatable traction and an overall awesome ride because it's completely unaffected by pedaling and braking forces. This design also eliminates "bobbing" for optimum climbing and acceleration. You'll be amazed.
For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.
To optimize fit, pedaling efficiency, comfort and control, Specialized tailors the geometry and components on their women’s bikes to feminine physiques. The frames are engineered with smaller-diameter tubes to decrease weight and increase compliance. Shorter top tubes provide a perfect fit and greater stand-over height on small frames allows for easy on/off. And, for a truly custom feel, Specialized includes small-diameter grips, narrow handlebars and women's saddles that make every ride more fun and comfortable than you could ever imagine.
