That's a new roubaix with rim brakes, team only for the classics. They're too concerned with a puncture and not being able to shove any random wheel in costing a victory at roubaix so they've made a new roubaix with standard brakes. A press release went out to dealers. I think it's also mentioned on cyclingtips.com. They have also said if there is enough demand they'll release it for sale.

Well it looks I may have spotted the first 2018 Tarmac or maybe Pro-Spec Roubaix. The Quick Step-Floors riders were out on the Flanders course doing recon today. I noticed the 'low-mount' seatstay, low-mount seat clamp (e.g.- the current Roubaix), rim brakes, and level top tube on the bike Boonen was riding. It was very sneaky of Specialized to paint it similarly to his special edition team frame.

Here are a couple of shots I noticed, and a link to a video where you can see the entire profile of the frame.

Gotcha. I also can see the 'suspension' boot in the video pretty clearly. I wonder if there really is a future shock in there? I would be interested to see the layout of the bike as well. I am gonna have to hunt around for the press release...

I'd be surprised if the boot was just for show. But teams seem to do some strange things for Roubaix. The tech features out of that race are sometimes my favorite galleries of year.

Based on their time frame..

There might be new Tarmac.

I wonder how it is called given the current one is called the New tarmac

The current one is not called the New Tarmac ;)

Maybe they'll all just be called the Tarmac from now on. The new Supersix Evo is just the Supersix Evo. The TCR has always been the TCR.

LBS doesn't hear any info. I hope they don't go semi-aero like Canyon Ultimate.

LBS won't tell you because the reps won't tell us anything.

Aero as first gen Venge and sub 800g? If it doesn't look as hideous as ViAS, I might be tempted.

I'm going to repeat this again as many keep pointing finger at LBS.

Specialized marketing team rely on same marketing scheme as Apple. They get people excited ~ 4 weeks (if I'm not mistaken) before the release and release the product on a specific date! Product page on the website get updated in the morning on the day of release.

There will be rumors but we won't know any details before the release date. From what I hear, their employees swear by confidentiality.

I would love to have a S-works Tarmac disc but the current version doesn't seem to very convenient when it is coming to change wheels :-(

from the Bike Radar review (http://www.bikeradar.com/road/gear/cate ... isc-48977/)
"The downside, however, is that you can’t switch the rear wheel without 30 minutes of work and the loss of a couple of gears. Changing wheels requires changing derailleur hangers and adjusting the brake caliper. In our experience, it also meant that you couldn’t cross-chain in the 36/11 or 22 without the chain snagging on the backside of the big ring."

and thru-axles would be nice
or Mavic Speed Release thru-axle system which has been also adopted by Enve now (same company)
