I really like the red. I think 303s are aesthetically the perfect pairing with the Tarmac.

Great color, that.
Do you happen to have a weight for the frameset?

IMHO it needs one Specialized logo, somewhere, at least.

Looks like the logo is ghosted on the dt.
What brakes are those?

Thanks for the comments everyone!

This was my first bike before selling it last year. A few too many logos... maybe I'm over compensating?

Correct - the logo is translucent, so difficult to catch. The brakes are DA9000 with zipp pads. Missed that, and have updated the original post.

Sorry - no weight on the frameset alone. I built it up before I started caring about weight. But now I really wish I had! There is weight somewhere on this frame that I can't find...

Does 7.4kg seem high to anyone else given the parts? I suppose the 303s are not too terribly light - weighing in at about 2.625kg with a 200g cassette. Over 600g more than the tubular C24s...

7.4 is about right.

DA isn't the lightest, same with Zipp. That said, a comfortable 7.4 is a lot better than an uncomfortable 6.9.

That's where I am now. How much lighter is practical? I want as light as possible, without being unreliable or uncomfortable.

I do really like the ghosted decals though, nice touch

Nice bike, the picture doesn't show the true colour. Best colour in my opinion.

Both very good points. The bike is very comfortable and a joy to ride. I was hoping for lighter, but not disappointed in any way.

Yes - definitely hard to capture in photos. I read a statement on a dealer website that described how the paint is supposed to "change" over time to a darker, richer red. Should be interesting to see what happens. I've had the frame since May.

Thanks all for the comments!
