Setup will probably change a little bit. Stem is correct height, but I have to check first. Decals on Fulcrum wheels are waterslide decals. Very thin. Probably removable with Microscale Microsol if the decals are not beneath clear coat. I need confirmation about this. I like the grey decals on the wheels but the red ones are probably a little bit too big. I will also check the weight of the bike with my Lightweight Meilenstein C wheelset. I will make pictures. Tomorrow I will test the bike. ;-)

What a spectacular paintjob. I never knew it was so lustrous but your pics certainly captured this excellently.

Great looking bike!

Thanks! The paint plays in the sun. The ride on this Tarmac is also great.

Great color scheme - but I’d go for some plain (matte UD carbon) wheels with no decals aesthetically - the fulcrum’s are quite loud. That frame should be allowed to do all the talking on its own!

Thanks all. Here a few pictures of the frame with my Lightweight Meilenstein Clinchers.

The all in weight is now around the 6.8kg. This can be a little lower with Sram Red cassette and lighter tires. EE brakes would be another option but I prefer the SraM Red S900 direct mount brakes when they are available (here in the Netherlands).

Looks so much better with the Lightweights on, plus a 400g saving. Awesome.
