Hey everyone,

new to the forum, but not new to cycling.

I'm about to be building up a new Specialized Tarmac SL4 Pro OSBB Frameset!

Here are my specs:



Tarmac Pro SL4 OSBB Frameset

Specialized Toupé pro

Specialized Rip Cage Carbon

S-Works Carbon Tarmac Handlebar

S-Works Pro-Set Stem

Sram Force

Mavic Kyserium SL

Mavic Yksion Griplink (front)

Mavic Yksion Powerlink (rear)

Mavic Road Innertube Presta

Garmin Edge 500

Speedplay Zero Stainless

Zipp Bartape


Please give me some feedback, and other options, just keep in mind I'm on a budget.

P.S. Would it be worth it to use a different chain/cassette then sram force's? Can I get a better one that is just as cheap or cheaper, that is also lighter?

Also, would the upgrade to a Red BB be worth it because of ceramic bearings?


Thanks,

AK

skip the sram chain and get a KMC x10sl, lighter, quieter and cost less on the Bay.

You can't upgrade to a "red bottom bracket" for a couple reasons. First, it doesn't exist, but the frame is OSBB so wouldn't take a GXP bb anyway. You could get ceramic bearings, but I wouldn't bother.
