Buying a bike can be intimidating. Much like buying a car, you can be overwhelmed with choices. Then comes the sticker shock. The Specialized Diverge E5 isn't for every rider – no bike is – but it does hit a sweet spot that should appeal to a lot of cyclists. The road bike is designed to also be ridden on gravel trails and fire roads, in addition to asphalt, making it a go-anywhere type of bike. You'll find more tire clearance than most traditional road bikes, giving you more room for mud, and slightly thicker tires provide more stability. It has mounts for three water bottle holders (as well as mounts for racks and fenders), making it a good option for touring or longer commutes.
