Hi All,

New to the forum and first post

After running a Trek Emonda SL8 for 2 years and about 5,000 miles;


I thought it would be time for a change

Specialized S-Works SL5 - 56cm
Ultegra Di2
Quarq Dzero
Praxis Buzz Chainrings
S-Works 40cm Carbon Hover Bars
120mm S-Works Stem
Carbon S-Works Seatpost
Bontrager RXL Saddle
38mm Carbon Clinchers
Chris King R45 Hubs
25mm Vittoria Graphene tyres
Look Carbon pedals


Weight - Not sure, around 7kg or so

Apologies for the poor photos, the weather in Europe is poor at the moment so it'll be a while till she sees Tarmac..

Whats the weight on those tires? People seem to love them, but they are puncture magnets (they say).

Thanks all, tyres weigh 240g each, so slightly more than 4000s 2. I have a pair of Chris King/Archetype w/ 4000s 2 25mm that I'll also use, solid wheels (although a bit heavy)
