Here is the latest and greatest in my stable. #12/260 Limited Edition Vinokourov Specialized SL4 Tarmac size 58cm.

The pictures don't do the paint (or weight) justice since its hard to capture the retina burning red/orange color of the frame. I have 2 other 58cm SL4's that came in 41g and 47g lighter than the Vino because of the amount of paint (thought it would actually be more). Frame weight for the Vino is 948g.

Quick parts list is as follows:
-2013 10spd Sram Red
-Sram Red Quarq
-ENVE 45 tubulars
-ENVE cockpit
-S-Works Toupe saddle (stripped of cover 97g)
-Ciamillo GSL brakes (have used them on a few bikes now and after I get the setup dialed they are actually good)
-Mismatched tubulars at the moment with a Conti front and a Specialized rear, but the new Conti rear is on its way
-Speedplay Zero Chromo's at the moment with Zero Ti's coming, so I'll lose another 45g~
-Lizard Skins tape

I think thats it? I've never done one of these. I'll post my Venge here soon. It's not much of a WW bike but it looks pretty good, IMO.

Nice! Was the Toupe an original Specialized that you stripped or a Chinese one from Alibaba?

Thank you. The Toupe was an original Specialized. I haven't ridden it yet but I have 143 Toupe's on the rest of my bikes so hoping it works out ok on longer rides.

That looks great, I like the way they have put the SWorks on the top tube.

It's crazy how poorly the color translates in pics. In the sun, in person it's crazy. A CAAD this color would look so good! Recently all my bikes have been black on black on black so this is a nice change of pace.

Thanks Frankie. I'll sit down and do that here soon. Only prob is I got too excited and didn't weigh all the components individually.


@DartanianX I get asked about the cages a lot. My brother does business with a Taiwanese company that is supplying him with tubeless specific carbon hoops. In one of the orders they sent him samples of these cages. They weigh right at 20g. I have them on all my bikes now and haven't broken one in over 7-8k miles. Don't hold bottles super tight though and I have lost a few over rough roads.

Nice build and the weight is great. Would love to see a detailed build list with weights.

Thanks Drainyoo, now I really wish I would have been patient and weighed all the components individually. After adding all the listed weights together and the known ones (frame, fork, saddle, wheels, cages, pedals) it confirms the scaled weight is accurate.

Next build I'll have to do it the "right" way.

Too bad. What was the weight of the frameset?
