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
On my SL6 i have change the BB bearings... with the C-Bear !
You can find the weight of the bike on page 62 (1 Dec 9:26pm)

Also did you get a chance to weigh it either before or as is?
I didn't get a chance to weigh it before, but it's 7.80 kg with pedals & cages now.

that look pretty good for a low seat height on a 54...

I think that was touched on earlier in this thread somewhere, but anyone know what the SL6 10R "Pro" frame weighs compared to the same in the SL5? I've read the new Pro in a 56 is right at 7kg, which isn't any lighter than the SL5 was.

I don't think I've seen a "frame only" weight for the Pro... but my local shop has a complete, built one. I can see if they'll thro it on the scale for me.

Its sort of pointless though.. I think that most in this thread have already established that the new SL6 Tarmac is perhaps a little lighter than the "SL5" but its not life-shatteringly light and no Tarmac has ever been... I don't think the point of the Tarmac has ever been super light.

7kg sounds really light for the Pro. My Pro SL5 with 9070, 1360g wheels, and Zipp carbon cockpit is 7kg. It would have to be a substantially lighter frame considering is Ultegra and 1500g~ wheels.

My S-Works SL5 with Dura-Ace 9000 and 1400g wheels weight 7,1kg complete with pedals, bottlecages and garmin sensors...

Does anyone have pictures of their bikes with alloy or very shallow wheels? I am post carbon when it comes to rim brakes and was wondering how the frames are complimented by shallow alloy wheels.

Viviani on a Tarmac, is the ViAS dead?

I'm wondering will Spesh be offering team replica colourways in the SL6 frame later in the season. Just seen some pics from the TDU and Bora team frame is very tasty, even the QS frame colour is a bit more appealing this season.

Originally announced as a 2016 model in summer 2015, so a new 2019 Venge could be in the works for the TdF.

I mean, Sagan was on a rim brake Vias, so I doubt it.

I really think that a new Shiv TT is in the works, as the current Shiv TT is now super old and isn't even being offered for sale anymore, but I've been saying this for at least the last 2 years. The fact that none of the Specialized teams have a major headline GC guy or even a major TT guy make me wonder how big of a priority it is though.

You can buy a Shiv TT without any problems, it's still offered. Do agree that it might see an overhaul though as its been around for quite some time now. However I can't imagine it being the only newly released bike during a season since TT bikes make up a very small percentage of bike sales.

I just hope there will be a new Venge soon. I like the mindset around the ViAS, but the end result just doesn't really do it for me. There are just too many areas that can be improved on.
