Wow, what a beauty! :thumbup: You bought it like this or is it a special paintjob? Good luck with you're racer. :wink:


@chaingang: No, the frame don't have a special paintshop. The build-up is custom, but the frame is the normal SL3 "Carbon"... http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bc/SBCBkModel.jsp?spid=47493&eid=4350&menuItemId=9256


@all: Thanks for your comments! :D

rerun: I'm not a big fan of Specialized bikes, but this one is superhot. Love it. Looks like matte black is the new white :thumbup:

LittleSprinter - Awesome color juxtaposition: black on white saddle, white on black frame, white tape and black hoods. Your look will age gracefully.

@ mattc: i did have those bontrager xxxl cages to and they look the best
i am still thinking about using them again if those wassertragers keep on getting stuck on those bottles

@ rerun: thats really light (mine is just slightly more heavy but a entry level frame/clincher/non bb30) but i thought it would be lighter, best stealth looking for a tarmac so far i must say

@ steadyuk: yours looks perfect for any ride i can think off, well done

i am lazy on showing of mine but i am busy with my other commuter and city rides
still busy modding the sr11 and climbing wheels but i am aiming for perfecting as the original 6,5 kg DA7800 setup was not weight and esthetic worthy
old picture setup here:

Bad photos from the race weekend.

2009 Tarmac SL Pro, 58cm
2010 Sram Force
S works cranks
Speedplay zeros, to be replaced with Keo Carbons
Hushovd stem and bars, Roubaix tape
Arione saddle, Fizik post
Kinlin xr-270s ceramic coated laced to a Ligero front and Powertap 2.4SL rear

KCNC skewers, new saddle and a Q rings on the way. This thing is built to take tons of abuse.

Yes, KWalker tell us more about the rims.

Can't find any information on the ceramic option and I have not been able to find a manufacturer website?

I think Troy Watson of Ligero Wheels does the ceramic coated Kinlins. It would make sense since Kwalker is running a Ligero front hub :wink:
