Endurance bikes typically don't win pro races, but don't tell Tom Boonen, who pedaled a Specialized Roubaix to his fourth Paris-Roubaix title in 2012. The Compact gives you the same upright position and vibration dampers but with a more affordable carbon construction and Shimano's Ultegra componentry. Add a plush saddle and forgiving gear ratios, and you'll be comfortably spinning no matter how punishing the ride. [$3,800; specialized.com]
