The sticker son the bottom of the BB shell look nothing like like the serial number stickers I've ever seen on my Specialized bikes and that bottom brack shell cover doesn't look right either.

Is there suppose to be a 'Tarmac on the lower seat stay? That seems odd, but I'm not an expert.
The "Tarmac" on the lower seat stay was part of the graphics used on the SL5 Tarmacs.... but this bike is painted as an SL4, even though the frame, based on some other design points looks like an SL5. IMO, this is a chinese knockoff of the SL5, but the company didn't do a very good researching the different models and painted it to look like an SL4.... or perhaps they did this intentionally to somehow avoid copyright claims.

I edited my comment 1 minute after I put my fingers on the board. You are quick.

I figured that out after looking at the photo again.

Looks like more effort went into this fake than usual.
