Feddesman, get an H2 Emonda SLR or a straight-up endurance bike.

I built a 56 as well, at least, changed the mechanical Ultegra for Di2, and swapped out the CLX25s for 404s.

Yeah :D not too far off Bianchi's celeste, something a little different than the army of matt-black bikes we see in Oz these days

To the guys who have given weights for the SL6 frames - does your figures include the BB bearings which I'm assuming come from Specialized already pressed in similar to the SL5? Ta

Really dig that paint, I liked it in their pictures but you can't always tell colors perfectly from stock photos. This is pushing me towards getting one of those and swapping parts over.

Also did you get a chance to weigh it either before or as is?
