Latest build. Decided to do another Campy build after I liked the Chorus on the Pinarello. Got a deal from a buddy on the V1 version and built a little BB mount that seems to work good.

Weight with the 3.4 tubulars is 6.6kg and 6.8 with the 3.4 clinchers (with the Cotton clinchers) if I remember correctly. Went ENVE cockpit again and the same Tune saddle as I used with the Pinarello.

The ride feels VERY refined compared to the SL4. Both really good, IMO, but the '15 feels like an M3 with tuned for the track coil overs. Just "that much" better.

Damn this is nice! Your choice of tires is also a nice touch.

Thanks guys, its a really fun bike so far and by far the nicest (from a build standpoint) bike I've owned/built.

Perfect! Not usually a Specialized fan, but yours is a real beauty.

beauty, you should get a set of cotton or silk tubulars too. The clincher is super :D

@cerro I've now thought the same thing. Didn't know how I'd like the gum walls with the all black look but now I love it.

What are good gum wall tubulars that have removable cores, anyone?

^ OP, Vittoria makes their newer Corsa CX tubulars with removable cores, so I'm pretty sure their SC line has the same.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and Veloflex criteriums
