After a little hiatus, I have bought another road bike.
Careful consideration was taken. After testing multiple bikes and listening to my LBS about what they suggest I get, I ended up with a Tarmac. I was fitted, comparing this fitting experience to my previous one (on my 54 Allez), it was much better. Simply put, Measurment>Eyeballing...

The bike is a 2017 56 Tarmac Sport. It weighs a hefty 8.63kg/19lbs (cheap luggage scale) with 105 pedals and a bottle cage added. Will be changing the seat first, groupset with power meter a little later, and wheelset once the weather is better.
I will be weighing the parts with a better scale once I start changing things.
I already did a spreadsheet of approximate weight trying to figure what each unknown part weighs.

The most important part is that it feels good to ride, and I am very happy with my choice.

Looks nice.
What's in the bottle? (the one under the pedal, not in the cage) :D

That would be Singlecut Mo Shuggie Soulbender IPA! A great brewery out of NYC. Also Thanks!
