Here's my freshly built 2015 s-works tarmac!

This is my first ever bike build and first ever Specialized bike. My last bike was a 2014 Wilier GTR.

Nice!!!! Do you have the weight for the frame, fork and seatpost? Currently discussing a build involving this frameset (same size, OPQS colors) and Sram+zipp components with my LBS.

Ha thanks.

You have to granny gear it here in the cotswolds in the UK. Every corner you turn you end up climbing! Which I love so it's all good :)

Unfortunately all the parts arrived during my 2 week shut down at work, which is where my only scales would have been to weigh everything. Obviosuly I was itching to get the bike built so didn't have the patience to wait to weigh it all upon my arival back at work. Pretty annoyed now though as I did have every intention of weighing everything :(

I haven't even seen any other weights from other peoples builds of the 2015 tarmac frameset yet either so I'd like to know also.

56 New SWorks Tarmac is 1120grams. With hanger, seatpost clamp hardware, aluminum bottle screws. Heavier than SL4. Disc version was only 5g heavier, which may explain things.
I got a photo of it somewhere, couldn't find it so far.

Nice build!

Can't really go wrong with S-works, Dura-ace, KMC etc.

Really like the 9000 cranks on the black frame.

Loose the spacers, tilt your bars forward, put it in the big ring, and loose the warning stickers on the wheels :lol: :lol:

Looks good, just a suggestion on your cables - your rear brake housing is too long and the rear mech loop is too short (which can affect shift performance.) Fortunately they are pretty easy to fix. gmakris's bike is a good example of what cable length to shoot for.

Funny you should say that as I'm in total agreement. Just hadn't got round to it yet.

I actually have just shortened my rear brake housing be an inch and now its spot on.

Cheers
