S-Works SL3 Tarmac limited edition Andy Schleck.
After watching the 2010 TdF, I just HAD to have this bike. After receiving the frame, I was disappointed that the factory Specialized colour was a dull silver and nothing like the black chrome 'Mclaren' silver of the Schleck brother's bikes. I employed the services of Paint My Bike in Brisbane, Australia and they got extremely close but more importantly a huge difference compared to the run of the mill color released to the general public. I will try to get some pics in the sun to show its more metallic properties soon.

Its 99% accurate in terms of the parts used, including the hard to get parts of a Berner modified Sram red rear derailluer and the limited edition Prologo Schleck saddle (I got greedy and got 1 x Frank and 1 x Andy model). I was even lucky enough to find a brand new set of Zipp Zedtechs (the difference being a couple of anodized blue hub bits which I didn't want to rebuild the wheel). There are only a few minor differences equipment wise between Andy's bike and my build being a Sram XG1090 cassette, Gore Pro brake cables (tried the Nokons and they were horrible) a SRAM 2013 chain catcher and Speedplay steel spindles. The Schleck bikes are 56cm compared to mine being a 54cm.

I cant find my scales, but once I do, I'll post it up.

Impressive tribute.

I'll bet you're a better descender.

I'm actually pleasantly surprised how fast and crisp the change is, especially with the steel cage. Having said that I'm comparing a Campagnolo record derailleur with Rotor rings :oops:

They are actually FSA Energy -alloy and cheap!

Like many pros they choose alloy over carbon as 1) less likely to cause damage in a fall and 2) to make sure they meet the 6.8kg weight limit

Just saw a photo of Andy's 2010 bike the other day and was thinking what a great paint job it was. Well done, it's a beaut!

Would love to see more pics of the frame up close? Did the paint shop have to redo all the decals or did they paint these on?

Not my cup of tea, but bravo x 1000 for the awesome tribute and uniqueness of the paint scheme.

Finally got some time and sunshine this afternoon to take a quick pic of the 'shinier' silver

The company that did the frame actually had the graphics/template from Specialized, so its 100% factory accurate. The black has been sprayed and decals have been used for the colors (and finished off with clear ceramic clear coat)
