My ride for 2013, it will replace my Cervelo R3SL.
Specs:
Sworks Tarmac SL3, 56
Shimano Dura ace with Sram 50/34 chainrings
3T arx stem 130mm and handlebar (42cc) (decals removed, but there comes a new stem)
Fizik Arione cx carbon
Speedplay zero stainless
Reynolds Assault wheelset, maybe i'll put some black decals on it??? Tips are welcome
Tacx Tao light bottlecage
Weight is now 6,820kg / 15,03lbs

Sometimes i see same bike, but without the "highroad & Shimano" decals. One guy told me that thet were removable (decal). But mine are painted. Somebody got an answer to it?

I love it as it is, to be honest I like the decals... Team Htc High Road were a class act and I'm all for keeping the memory alive...

Just maybe loose the snow, no PB's been beat in those conditions... :D

Looks great. Why the frame change? You ride your new SL3, yet?

How's it compare to the R3 SL? I've always envied the R3 SL and SLC-SL.

The Sworks is more stiffer in the bracket. It seem like this bike is more agressive.
But with the bad weather, i can't ride it outside now.

All of my Highroad bikes are a mix of decals and decals under clear. The 'Highroad' and 'Shimano' decals are always under clear, while the SRM and rider name decals are over clear.

Use these:

And find some Ti hardware for the seatpost for some cheap-easy tuning.

QR skewers?

The HTC bikes always looked good to me. Those colors on the black frame just look good. :thumbup:
