Completed the SS and have a couple of rides so far. Swapped all the parts from the SL5 Sagan except the brakes, used EE direct mounts for the build. Mounting the EE direct mount brakes required a bit of learning curve, also trying to get the alignment of the cables was tricky with the rear seatstay and the "rear" brake.

Ride: More comfortable than my SL5 Sagan. The front and rear soak up more of the rough stuff, impressive given the fact that the BB feels stiffer. The power transfer is so direct, it really accelerates with every watt in the pedals. Really impressed with the frame!

Weight: 14.5 lbs or 6.577 kg - fully loaded and ready to ride with cages, pedals, Barfly Garmin mount, P2M Powermeter and Garmin speed sensor.

Photos: Just like the SL5 Sagan, the paint looks stunning and better in person than the photos. The decals are reflective and change with light conditions and angles, just like the paint.

Build:
Frame: 56cm S-Works Tarmac Sagan Superstar Edition
Drivetrain: Sram Red eTap
Cassette: Sram Red 11-26
Crankset: S-Works Cranks, Power2Max powermeter with Praxis 52-36 chainrings
Pedals: Speedplay Zero Stainless
Brakes: EE Direct Mount Brakes
Cables: Jagwire Elite Link
Handlebar: 3T Ergonova Team Stealth carbon 40cm
Stem: 3T Team Stealth 100mm
Tape: Specialized Roubaix tape
Garmin mount: Barfly
Saddle: S-Works Toupe
Wheels: Zipp 303 NSW
Tires: S-Works Turbo 26c
Cages: S-Works carbon
Topcap: Chameleon - Made Rad by Tony (Bauman)

Looks beautiful! :thumbup: sounds like a really nice build too.
I'm very impressed by the frame weight. With so much glossy paintwork you'd expect it to be heavier.

What a color, wow ! Looking forward to the build. Is that still an OSBB in the same dimensions as before in the sl5 ? Looks like 2 alu inserts we're inserted in an sl5 BB shell, resulting in a smaller diameter, just like the alu OSBB frames
