Finally built up my new Tarmac SL4. Had to wait a bit to get the seatpost battery to manage a fully internal Di2 build, but the setup is super clean and worth the wait. The ride is amazingly stiff (even coming off a Felt F1) and handling is precise and rocket fast. Doesn't look too bad either :wink:

Build list:

Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL4 frame/fork (54cm)
Specialized S-Works carbon cranks with SRM spider (110 BCD, FSA 52/36 chainrings)
Speedplay Zero stainless pedals
Shimano Di2 shifters, F&R derailleurs (internally routed, battery in seatpost)
Cinelli Ram bars
Ritchey WCS carbon stem (110mm)
Planet X Ti brakeset
BlackOps 27.2x400mm seatpost (zero setback)
Specialized S-Works Romin carbon saddle
Boyd 50mm clincher wheelset
KMC X10SL chain
Shimano Dura Ace cassette
BlackOps Ti skewers
Veloflex Corsa tires

Total weight as pictured: 14.4 lbs / 6.5 kg
(13.5lbs with my Boyd 24mm tubular climbing wheels)

Got the same frame and crank. Not in love with white graphics on the crank so but have to see once the bike is build. The mat black is better but wasn't in stock.

Why the in-line seatpost? Is it very flat where you are, or did you just like the look of it?

A setback seat post would have required me to use a shorter stem, so I went with zero setback to avoid changing up the handling characteristics I am used to...
