Beware putting Shimano, and Specialized parts on a Cervelo S3, will make for an unusually heavy bike.

How do you like those Sprinter Tires? I'm debating those, possibly the Gatorskin version for durability. I have 404 FC coming in 2 weeks and they will be my first tubular!

"Murdered Out" usually refers to all black.

Nice bike though.

Does 'Murdered Out' mean ANYTHING, outside of downtown LA?

As a Brit, Murdered Out would mean that it has been killed, I would presume. I expected to see a crashed bike here.

It was the OP's failed attempt at saving the thread title, because the beware warning was such a hit.

It's a common term in the US which usually refers to something being all black, specifically a black automobile with black wheels. :smartass:

But what do I know... I live a mere 5 miles from Downtown L.A. :noidea:

Sprinters are a really nice set of tubulars. Actually I have seen data indicating that these are Continentals tubulars with the lowest rolling resistance! Also quite puncture resistant...
I like these, because it is affordable to ride these, with a number of punctures each year (and they still roll great). I really like the Competitions also: But only use these for my time trial wheels: On the road they are to expensive when you get punctures.

I've tried Vittoria's tubulars, but they are to fragile for danish conditions (to many punctures).
