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 S-Works Ultralight?


Yes it is.

I have not owned a bike with these brakes before now, so can only offer my opinion on current bike setup and that would be it looks pretty good from where I am standing! :)

Thanks! I love eebrake and dont want to use heavy shimano direct mount brake, so, I have to ask my dealer whether they can solve this problem for my ''sagan'' frame.

You have the aluminum bridge instead of the carbon bridge. You can see that the aluminum bridge spaces the brakes at an angle from the frame. It seems that complete UL builds will come with the aluminum spacer to make room for the EE brakes. I would assume that UL framesets will come with the carbon bridge, but we'll have to wait until those show up here in the US.

Just ordered a set of ee brakes direct from cane creek.

I'll be running a 54cm Sagan and for that they sell a Tarmac Direct Mount Adapter Kit for 49 - 54cm Frame sizes along with a short linkage Front Brake for the rear.

Part number BEE0166

I worried that no kit can help the small frame... Could you provide the link?

Tried looking, couldn't find the web link for that kit. You'll need to contact Cane Creek as I got that number on my invoice. It's possibly an internal number as the EE Brakes are being manufactured right now with 1 - 2 week ETA for delivery.

Anybody got a chance to spend their time with their SL6 yet? Hoping to get myself a Sagan's colorway. Would like to know how it rides!

The SL6 SW Tarmac is an improvement from the already fantastic SL5 SW Tarmac. It's more comfortable over the rough stuff but still agile and quick handling. Power transfer seems better than before, with less BB flex. I've had it a few times on the trainer and there is noticeably less flex compared to the SW SL5.

The Sagan SS is amazing!! You won't be disappointed.

What size you on? Does the handling feel the same as the SL5? I am concerned about the geo changes in my size (52), slacker HA, shorter reach, lower BB. I love how fast the steering feels compared to most bikes in my size and have a long torso and appreciate that it had long reach for the size and these change seem like they will shorten up the fit and make it less reactive.

I'm on a 56 with reach and stack numbers nearly identical to the SL5. No real difference in handling between the SL5 and SL6 in my size. Biggest difference I felt is the increased comfort.
