Roll 3.0

Delivery Icon

We deliver! Just say when and how.

They say that every journey begins with a single step, but when that journey is related to exercise, that first step can sure be a doozy. It can be life-changing, however, and there's no better machine to take the plunge with than with the Roll.

With its lightweight alloy frame, eight speeds of "go fast" gearing, stable and wide 650b tires, and powerful hydraulic disc brakes, the Roll does everything in its power to encourage and motivate you to keep fit and get around in comfortable, efficient style.

This Roll Doesn't

Assumed management of 22 brand new Roll 3's in a fleet environment. A very poor quality bike in my view (and a half-century of riding). 1. Bikes have been ridden between zero miles (2 bikes) and 1100 miles (2 bikes), over 4 months. 2. 17 bikes have misaligned star nuts in the steerer tube, 9 of 17 severely misaligned (my engineering opinion) 3. 2 bikes have had shifter failures, 1 was repairable, 1 must be replaced entirely, neither was abused. 4. 1 bike has a leaky brake lever assembly (piston seal). 5. 3 bikes had brake lines not properly secured to the frame, 1 was rubbing against the tire and damaged. 6. 5 bikes have chain drop problems, 2 of 5 have broken chain protector rings (reported by others too). On the other hand, I REALLY like the Specialized Nimbus Sport tires. Great rollout and surprisingly sticky in turns.



Not perfect

I love this bike it's super comfortable to ride and I've pust over 100miles on it in about 3 weeks. However the front chainguard popped off the very first time I rode it. I chalked that up to bad luck. But now it's happened a dozen or so times and I only ride on weekends so I'm averaging a chain jump every ride sometimes twice. The chainguard ring has now snapped and is totally useless. Nothing exists online for this and I've also noticed I can't find that replacement part. It's a great bike so I'll give it a 4. But we're it not for these issues Id give a 4.



Love the bike, dislike the packaging and assembly

I recently ordered two of these bikes, the low entry for my wife, and the regular one for me. Her bike arrived packaged much more secure than mine. Mine was not zip tied to the inner box like the other leaving the handle bars to rub on the frame. Her bike also went together flawlessly whereas mine the first couple threads on both crankshafts were boogered making for a nightmare putting the pedals on. Would be great if they could send me some new parts with good threads!!



A long overdue upgrade

I have been a mountain bike / trail bike rider for ever. The leaned-over posture and sore rear end just werent worth it to ride around the neighborhood any more. The upright position, better brakes and fantastic seat made this decision very easy.

Unexpected surprise

Never had owned a Specialized before but checked this model out and was really impressed. I had to order an XL but shipping to the dealer was quick and they did a great job getting me set up on it. My first comfort bike and it was just what I was looking for. Can't beat it for features, performance and quality of build. I love the unique look also.



This is my first bike I bought that wasn't from a walmart type store and I love it.

I've taken it out 4x since I bought it due to the weather and have gotten about 300 miles in total with each ride being around 75 miles. I love it. It's so smooth and easy to pedal. I have slight hills near me but nothing serious and I have no problem getting up them like I did on my old fattire bike. I feel like I'm flying down the road. It's really comfortable. This has been the best bike I've ever bought. It's certainly the most expensive too but 100% worth it to me. I have never had this much fun and comfort on a bike before. It's perfect for going on longer rides.



Still rollin

Got my roll in Fort Lauderdale in, I think 2017. I bought it because I’ve ridden many bikes, and this bike just glides. It almost feels like an electric and that’s not a joke. The length this bike can roll, will surprise you. Mine is completely blacked out with metallic orange reflecting in the paint. It is also a 24 speed which I do not see on the website now. I ride the bike on the beach at least once a week since I got it and while it is a bit rambled, paint chips, etc.… There is zero rust zero tarnish the bike looks awesome and still rolls like an ice skate. I came to the site thinking about buying a new one, and I am delighted to see the LTD 420 version …Enthusiastically recommend this bike.



Mixed review

First the bad; the back brake failed on the FIRST ride. The cable that connects to the lever popped out while I was breaking. On my third ride, the plastic that covers the chain, near the pedals (whatever it's called) somehow came off and got eaten by the chain, while I was taking a ride through a park. Honestly, expected more. But other than that, the bike is comfortable and quick. Just hoping for no more mechanical failures.

Awesome Bike!

I bought one at the bike shop and ordered another one straight from the Specialized site. I put the Roll 3.0 that I ordered together in about 20 minutes and it was my first time assembling a bike out of the box. I hope Specialized never does away with this model bike. Specialized did it right!
