Hello everyone, Donald here. Long time reader, short time commenter, first time introduction! Up for your review is my 2010 S-Works Tarmac. I have had the bike for about 1.5 years, and just now have gotten it to where I am mostly satisfied. The frame is a Team Geometry, with a shorter headtube(170 mm vs 205 for a standard 58). I was able to find a 2010 Tarmac Superlight in Asheville NC that unfortunately had the superlight pricetag of $9,200.

Well, I certainly didn't need all of the parts or the price, so I offered them $2,500 cash for just the module. I built up with mostly Sram Red parts and a set of Ksyrium SL's.

I was fine with the bike, and loved my Ksyrium wheelset, but I wanted that stealthy all-black look. I didn't want to go carbon b/c I don't race or stay on flat surfaces for very long(hilly in TN) + being near 200# and carbon's diminished breaking abilities scared me.

Long story short- I found a great deal on the Ksyrium SLR's last week and mounted this weekend.

Please be gentle!

Here is the before pic with "regular" Ksyrium SL's:

I like both pics! :D
Even though there are a lot about, I'm always happy to see an all/mostly black bike 8)
