New project coming up.

Not sure how much of a weight weenie it'll be

54cm SL4

Will be running DT swiss handbuilt wheels.
Campy chorus with Rotor 3D+
Haven't decided yet on 3T or Deda bars and stem

Figured I'd post though as not many of these lying about.

Not sure about how wonky that 'Innovate or die' badge has been put on the chainstay, the contador decal may be coming off too

Dunno what it is about them, but I just really love S-Works Tarmacs. =) This paint shceme also looks great.

I was not sure I liked the coulourway when I first saw it (pink and red together is tough to pull off) but its grown on me. Conceptually it's a cool idea.

I think you've got to keep the Contador graphics otherwise you loose part of the story behind the colourway.

Did Spec release the production run numbers for this one?

+1 to keep the Contador graphics.

It looks good, and should you wish to sell the frame off in the future, removal of the Contador graphics could diminish its resale value

Oh, how much does the frame weight?

You've won me over on the contador decal, not sure how long they'll stay on though as it seems quite easy to peel off where as the other graphics are painted on.

The SL4 is 1 out of 200, I'm pretty sure they've done a venge version too though, likely the same numbers.

Will get back to you with weights :)

How about getting the selle italia contador edition saddle to match the frame? (http://www.amazon.com/Selle-Italia-Sadd ... B003YP8AX2)

I would leave that Innovate or Die badge, it protects the frame incase the chain falls off and get sucked up into the chain stay. Just sent a Dogma off to be repaired because it didn't have one. Plus your cranks will cover 90% of it.

This thing is crying out for some black on black ENVEs!

I think you need to keep the black on black wheels for the build. Definitely looks sharp.

Nice looking frame. Not sure if you have seen this but it looks hot (except for the gigantic hydraulic hoods)
