Hi guys,

This really isn't a WW build. But I thought I wanted to share.

Background:
Coming of a Cervélo S5 I really liked the way it behaved under power and in the fast straits, but I got annoyed with it's less than average performance in the sidewinds and constant crunch-sound when stones jammed the frame cut-out (what was I expecting :roll: )

So I wanted a new bike and I wanted it to be more of an allrounder so obviously the Tarmac came to my mind.
A week later and this is what I came up with:

2013 Tarmac Pro frameset 56cm
SRAM RED shifters, chain and cassette
Rotor 3D+ crankset with 53/39T aero chainring
ZIPP SLCV2 Traditional handlebar
ZIPP Service Course SL stem
ZIPP Carbon cages
MAVIC Cosmic Carbone SLR wheelset (Open Pro CD on Hope Pro3 hubs for bad weather)
LOOK Keo Blade 12 carbon pedals
Specialized Romin Expert saddle

Awsome bike!

Is there any noticeable difference in crankset and bb stiffness between the two frames?

Slick looking bike. Way better than the S5 in my opinion. Makes me want that Tarmac!

If one were to feel stiffer than the other in the bb, then it would be the Cervélo. But the Tarmac is definitely stiffer overall. Headtube - downtube.

I will look in to a satin black ano for sure. But it's hard to find a company who will do this is in my area.

Nice can't wait to get my 2013 Tarmac. I sold my old one a while ago and is without a road bike.

@Drea

Check out this link, Firefly built a bike with a Rotor crankset, and according to the builder they used matte black paint. What kind of paint, I don't know, but it sure looks good.

(scroll down a bit to find the pictures of the bike)

I didn't think I would be this impressed by another Tarmac. Especially another black on black Tarmac, but that thing is beautiful. I agree that the cranks disrupt the look and can't wait to see what you do to tone them down a little.

Well done!
