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

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.

Here is mine. Still a work in progress, dialing the fit and need to cut steerer tube. The Zipp logo on the stem is also screaming and the Power saddle is great for my a$$ but does not look great.
Maiden voyage this morning. Felt good, lighter, easier to toss around. Out of the saddle effort felt great, Feels lower than my 1st gen Venge. And dead silent.

Now with picture, hopefully it will work this time.

You may have to use a different service than "photo bucket" :smartass:

How is the stability? Some bikes can feel planted at all sort of maneuver. Canyon Ultimate and Dogma came to mind. Some are less so (not that they are bad, just different handling characteristics). I prefer a planted bike as i tend to freak out on high speed descent.

I just did put electrical tape on the Zipp logo, I think that will work, barely noticeable.
