Hi Guys,

Newbie here, first post.

Been riding bikes since a kid, started as a mountain biker, then turned into a Roadie when taking up Triathlons in early 20's. Just bought my first Tarmac.

My other two bikes, an 2015 S-Works Shiv non-UCI which is the Ironman bike of choice and a 2012 S-Works Venge now retired to winter hack. Only ridden the Tarmac once last weekend and loving the differences between them.

Tarmac spec:

Frame: S-Works Torch Tarmac size 54.
Post:S-Works Carbon
Bars: S-Works Carbon Shallow drop
Stem:S-Works Carbon 110mm
Saddle: S-Work Romin
Group set: Full Sram Red Etap
Wheel set: Roval CLX 50 Clinchers
Tires: S-Works Turbo's
Pedals: Dura-Ace 9000
Cages: Specialized Carbons

Total weight-Pedals and Cages- 6.98kg

Hope you like the build as much as I do, was nervous considering my other two S-Works bikes are pretty low-key almost Stealth like.

Cheers Kenzie

Thanks for the welcome.

Yepp that's the one, goes from the colour you see here to a bright yellow when the temp hits 22 degrees. So basically for the one day of English summer I'll have a yellow bike :lol:

To be honest right now I'm happy with the spec as it is looking after the pennies, but most prob will change the bars, stem and post, to save some grams however they are already pretty light so I doubt I'll be save lots. We will see.

Something not-good is happening with the chain on the Tarmac. That aside this is quite a nice stable you have.
