Edited 06/13/2012 for better photos.

Recently upgraded from a 2010 Tarmac (pics in my signature). I posted this in the "Parlee" thread, but figured I'd give it it's own. The only parts I kept from the Tarmac were the wheels, saddle, pedals, and cages. I'm certain I'll do a little upgrading in the future, but for now, I'm very, very pleased with how my mid-life crisis bike came out. With my rubbish scale, it's came in right at 15 lbs. so, I'm thinking that with a more quality scale, it might get in the high 14 lbs range.

Very nice understated look. WOW is a nice change from all the BOB stealth builds.
Nice component selection. Enjoy riding it. :beerchug:

Looks really nice, much better with tan sidewall tubulars! Honestly I would change tape/saddle to match the tape/saddle colour. Z5 would be my frame if it only was available in Poland.
