I just picked this up a few weeks ago. Finally got all the bits swapped over from my Tarmac Pro SL . Full build details here and more pictures here. 6.8kg as pictured with changes to come...

Nice thing you got there. But how about a Moots stem? or is that only for 25,8mm bars? Love the handlebar though, looks so deep. Sweet bike

Those welds are pure sex.

Great build, Moots is the best in the biz with their welds for sure! How do you like those C4 hubs? Gonna be building up an Enve wheelset and was planning on using Extralite hubs but have been hearing good things about these C4's. :beerchug:

I think I'm going to stick with the 3T stem for awhile. I'll probably get the Moots Cinch seatpost when one comes along though!

The ride feels better than my Tarmac. It actually weighs exactly the same as my Tarmac how I last had it built. Descending on the Moots is solid and it feels great in a sprint. With some choice components this bike could be taken way down in weight. I think the frameset itself is actually lighter than the Tarmac Pro SL frameset.

The C-4 hubs are amazing. Super lightweight and durable. Another plus is that they are fully serviceable with no tools needed. Also, they come with Phil Wood bearings which is always a plus!

Why change anything? It's stunning and classic just as it is! Nicest bike I've seen on here in ages IMHO.

Always love to see the gray metal and a fine example too! :thumbup:

I think that is a good call. Great looking bike, by the way.

Actually, I've realised that stem is a de-logo'd 3T - get a Thomson to match the post and your sorted. Oh, and maybe a carbon railed saddle to lose the shiny rails that are currently there...

Then my comment will stand true! :thumbup:
