Well, the Mac is back. I needed to try harder than I wanted to-to convince myself to love the Venge........
What made you kick the Venge to the curb ?

I’m relieved to read about the journey back to the ‘Mac. Cuz I started searching for a used Venge to try after seeing your white one.

Since none of this applies to me, my state, or the rules here - I've got to ask - did you post all this just so you could share a picture of yourself?
Yea... basically. hahaha.. fair enough. Was just trying to make the point that regions have different rules for what is acceptable in "Eddy". The very first TT I did, I was told by someone that I'd have to race in the full TT class because I was on a Venge and it was aero. At that point in time, the rules and class deifniteions weren't clearly explained anywhere. As I lined up in the TT field, I watched so many of the Eddy class riders finishing on Foils and other aero bikes with 50-60mm wheels.

Long story short, anyone that is loking to race should check the rules of their local organizations or race promotors because everyone has a different take on what constitutes Eddy.

Great development, nice to see you could bring weight down even further.

I was also deciding between Venge and Tarmac and after 5000 km on the Tarmac it was the right choice.

You may also notice that I brought the cable kit with me from the Venge. Pretty pleased with how it tidied things up.

I've also been pondering a setup for a local TT series (assuming the world goes back to normal one day). I really enjoy time trials - even only ever having done them on road bikes. The local series has a number of guidelines to fit in for the "Eddy" category which seemed like a fun excuse to figure out a dedicated setup for the Tarmac. So I did.

Changes include:
-Swapping to my custom Berk Lupina
-25mm Corsa Speed 2.0
-Swapping the 11/28 1190 cassette for an 11/25 I had
-MT900 rotors from the RT99
-Fabric "cage" (So that I can ditch the bottle during the TT. I actually used these exclusively for about 2 years and they work great)

Which brings us down to 6077g... I know, disc bikes are heavy. My bad.

I must have overlooked it (sorry)...which wheels are pictured here? Diff from 'new wheel day' post from Feb. Great looking bike!

Please shed at least another 0.02 kg... but do not touch your lovely paintjob ;)

Love this.
Having just had my orange SL4 written off, I;ve worked out I can build one of these to replace it.

Hopefully my insurance company agrees!
