New machine, picked her up today. Amazing bike. Absolutely love it.

Spec - Carbon black, red and white. Size 54cm. Zipp 404 tubular with Vittoria tubs, s-works seat post, Campagnola Super Record 2011 shifters, front and rear mech, chain and cassette (12-25), Campag cabling, TRP 970SL calipers, Rotor 170mm crankset (52-36) with ceramic bearings, Look Keo blade pedals, Zipp water cages, pro integrated stem and bars, Fizik bar tape. Still fettling with the saddle position and height as well as saddle but the Charge spoon works well for me ! I might switch to white bars, but as of yet undecided.

Total weight as seen 14.5lb and fast. Over the moon with this bike. My first Specialized bike and I am now a new world carbon convert. ( Will de-sticker the forks later)

Good looking build! :thumbup: I think the paintjob is maybe the best I've seen from Specialized for a while.

Isn't that saddle Charge Knife, not Spoon, because it has white logo? Great saddle anyway, I have it in two bikes and I think it's one of the best saddles available cost/performance wise.

That's really lovely. Pro as you like. I'd leave the black bars. Looks perfect.

You are correct. The knife is the road bike version of the spoon. Very good VFM and super comfy - I also use a FLUX saddle, equally as compelling and cheap. I will never drop silly money on a saddle ever again.

It's cool, but you must IMMEDIATELY remove the yellow warning sticker from inside the fork leg.
