So, I got a deal for a used Tarmac s-works sl3 frame set, with saxo bank colors on it.

Image

Will be building it with some used parts which I have collected over the past month :

Specialized Tarmac sl3 sworks size XS
Ultegra 6800 mechanical shifters
Ultegra 6800 FD, RD
Ultegra 6800 brakes
Ultegra 6800 crankset 52/36 170mm
Specialized carbon seat post
Fizik Antares
carbon handlebar
Kalloy uno alu stem
Time xpresso 8 pro carbon pedals
Cane Creek headset (original on bike)
Bb30 adapter for shimano 24mm spindle (brand unknown. Bought it from the local Specialized shop)

The main purpose of the bike is for regular training purposes.

Since you already have the Reynolds wheels, use them.

I can remember some issue with wide rims on Tarmacs though, http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=117712. But perhaps the Reynolds wheels are to shallow for this problem to occur?

So, I ended up putting a set of ritchey wcs apex 50mm carbon tubs on them, with vittoria corsa evo cx tubs. 6.75kg on the shop's scale.

Pleasantly surprised by the nice glossy look of the carbon ritchey wheels. They are not very popular locally and it's the first time I have seen it. The Internet pictures really doesn't do the wheels justice.

Heheh that frame looks so tiny in the first pic, or rather the seat looks gigantic. A good trick on the eyes.

Very nice build and look forward to full pics at end of build. Love a compact and intensely fast-looking Tarmac!

I rode the tarmac for couple of months, but decided that I really dislike the stock paint job, and thus sent it for respraying at a local shop.

Image

Initially wanted to go for chameleon purple (similar to the new tarmac sl5)

Image

but in the end I settled for Candy Blue.

Image (not my bike. Found this on the Internet)

The paint would likely be heavier than regular colours as the painter told me that one coat of silver has to be sprayed on the bike before the blue goes in. Should be getting the frame back in a couple of days. Fingers crossed.

In the meantime, my new build list would be as follows :

(all SR 11 parts pre 2015)
SR shifters
SR Fd Rd
SR brakes
SR crankset 53/39 170mm
SR cassette 11-25
3T Team stem 100mm (decals removed, and sprayed black) (118g)
Zipp carbon handlebar 40cm (190g)
Sworks original seat post sprayed black
Specialized original seat clamp
SL3 sworks tarmac frameset
Easton Ec90 slx 24mm tubular with conti sprinter tyres (1.2kg sans tyres)
Selle San Marco Mantra Fx carbon
Look keo carbon ti pedals (200g)

My estimate for the weights is roughly 6.0kg. We'll see.

Image
Pics to come in the coming week.

That candy blue looks fantastic. Looking forward to seeing it built up!

Frame is almost ready. The paint guys had to respray a couple of times as it's kinda hard to get the desired candy blue shade. I'm pretty satisfied. Better pictures to come once the frame is collected and sent to the LBS.

Image

I do have a small issue now. The SR crankset which I intended to put on the tarmac has its own bearings in the spindle (CULT), whereas the osbb (pf30) frame has its own bearings too. If I were to use the wheels manufacturing osbb campagnolo adapter as shown below - does it means the crankset is spinning on both sets of bearings (cult n Pf30 bearings)? Isn't it weird?

Wheels manufacturing

Or should I go with praxis solution :
Praxis
http://www.praxiscycles.com/product/conv-bb-campagnolo/
Image
They don't include bearings as the bearings are included in the campy crankset. Thus, only one set of bearings are spinning.

C-bear has their own solution which includes ceramic bearings.
Image

I did search, but am even more confused after reading more and more.. Currently I'm inclined towards the praxis solution - only the campy cult bearings r used. The C-bear (cbear bearings + crankset bearings) and wheels manufacturing (existing Pf30 bearings in frame + crankset bearings) solutions require 2 sets of bearings.

your frame came out perfectly. it looks great! I can't help you with the adapters though. I have no experience with that.
