The 54 frame has carbon bridge at rear?

Specialized will stick to that. I can't remember a single year that they haven't had supply issues on limited models and popular sizes.

Can I install the rear eebrake direct mount on the rear at the seat stay of sworks tarmac sl6? Because I saw the photo of ultralight ver., they install two front eebrake on front and rear.


I just wanted to clarify this after seeing 2 Ultralights in the flesh on Friday. The 56 I saw had the carbon bridge you see in pictures and had the EE brakes directly mounted to the seat stays. The 54 had an aluminum adapter that spaced and angled the brakes away for the seat stays. This doesn't look as bad as it sounds, but it is not as svelte as the carbon bridge that has been posted in pictures. This would probably mean that if you rode a 54 or smaller you would need to buy this adapter piece from specialized if you wanted to run EE brakes.


FYI I got this email from Cane Creek:

'we have a Specialized specific pair of calipers for the new Tarmac, and essentially they are two DM front calipers that do not come with washers behind the brake shoes- to provide wider rim width clearance- and the caliper that goes on the rear of the frame has a specific- shorter- link that was designed to not contact the seat tube.'

Huge bummer, that means if you buy a non UL you are going to have to modify your brakes to run on a regular Tarmac.

Huh? It means if you want to run eebrakes on the new tarmac you need to get one of the brakes with the shorter link direct from them.

I have my doubts this is anything but an OEM only set up.

You can buy them direct from cane creek, or you can run shimano DM brakes (with basically any group)

Has anybody measure the weight of the frame ? Was at my local bike shop & there was a Sagan version size 52 & it weighed more than 900 g instead of the quoted 700+ g . Maybe it's 700+ excluding paint work & ceramic speed bottom bracket ?

Yes, the 733g figure is only for the Ultralight. The Superstar Sagan frame weighs in the high 800s without the BB bearings.

The Pro is quoted at 950. If that's unpainted that its going to end up as heavy or heavier than the previous gen, my "SL5" with the dark blue/hi viz orange paint scheme was around 1100g with hardware and BB. If its painted than again the Pro/S-Works distinction is going to be minute except for the UL model.

I asked the speciaizlied dealer from TAI WAN, they said "Speciaizlied is still discussing about small size frame run eebrake problem, and the adapter are not availble now ", any one know more about the problem? And, can it really solve it? Because I just bought the eebrake and cant return.........

Looking a little close at the brakes on my 54 and I am not sure I do have a 'carbon' bridge. In the pack that I received with the bike. I do have what could be described as a carbon bridge, but the one on the bike looks different.

Thanks

This is the bridge that I spoke of earlier that is being included with 54 and smaller frames to get the brake away from the seat tube. It appears to space the brake up and angle it back. I believe you would need this spacer if you wanted to use the EE brakes on any new tarmac frame 54 or smaller.
