It's a medium which I believe is a 54.

I've got a Speccy Romin with the perfect amount of red accents to beautifully match your bike :)

How is your old S-Works SL3 compared to this?

Also, since it's the first Zero7 in this forum you may upload it here: :)

I think your bike looks great, including the saddle. Do people not like it because it says "Specialized" on it? :noidea:

Honestly, I'm not a Specialized hater by any means, but it really isn't any comparison. The first time I took the Zero.7 out for a ride on my regular route, I went faster than I'd ever done it on my SL3 with basically the same components. I averaged almost a full MPH faster. Now you can chalk that up to having a favorable wind that day or whatever but I've since had my second, third, fourth and fifth fastest rides all on the Zero.7. And this is a flat route essentially. The BB is so incredibly stiff that you feel like every ounce of power you put into the pedals and cranks is not wasted. Maybe that's marketing speak that got into my head, but it truly just kills. And climbing on this bike? I'm not the best climber in the world as I'm 180 pounds but the bike just jumps up hills.

The other thing is it is incredibly comfortable. I imagine something so stiff would not be comfortable but it's insane. I'm doing a century in March so I'll definitely report back then but for 2-3 hours rides, it's been a dream.

I had the same problem for my Pina. I tried a Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbonio and a Fizik Antares oo, both didn't do it for me. From my previous bike I knew that I really
fitted a Spesh Toupe well, so I bought the S-works Toupe Carbon and "de-badged" it using acetone. Risky I know but the result was thankfully worth it.

Beautiful bike. Very jealous! Is the seatpost a Ritchey Superlogic but with Wilier logos on it? I'm probably wrong, just thought it looked similar.

It is a Ritchey. My old PRO vibe carbon seatpost wouldn't fit so I got the seat post that comes with the full Zero.7 frame. Not sure if it's a superlogic but it's a quality post.

Thanks for the feedback. If it's noticeably better than your SL3 then it must be really amazing!
