Hello team.
I had S-Works Tarmac SL6 previously, but sold it.

I got amazed by aerodynamics of this Sy6, and i can confirm that i don't care about additional weight anymore. I am faster with this bike on almost all rides i do in my area (Czech Republic, Prague and Central Bohemia).

Ah, that stripe is gone :)

Anyway, i love the sound / the aerodynamic noise the bike makes. My friend told me, it sound like car when it's rolling.

I like that sound too, less so when the wind catches my wheels :shock: :lol:

hi
for shure a good bike.....but if you simply want your rides as fast as possible, why dont you switch to a tt-bike? i can confirm, that my tt-bike is faster than any roadbike!

however, i wish nice, fast rides further on! :wink:

regards

btw indoor pic of your tarmac is amazing.

Yeah, weigh weenies, i am on 8.07kg with pedals, gp5000tl28 + 30 ml sealant + wahoo mount, i was considering many times to shed 200g out, but the bike works really well.

As mentioned in other thread, instead of shredding aerobike, makes more sense to buy a climbing bike and make it 4.5kg :D

Buing tt bike is not option for me, i need to handle the bike in various locations, curves, descents, etc.

I was thinking about aerodynamics recently.

Cannondale is mounting Vittoria Rubino Speed 23 by default. Those blow up to 26mm. I have gp5000tl28c blown to 29mm. The comfort is nice, the tires are one of fastest tires on the market.

Those Rubino's are probably more aero and around 190g + 70g inner tube = 260g total, while my conti's are 340+30ml = 370g each. I could have saved 220g, so it's very teasing. But i have now lot of comfort and low rolling resistance.

I will stick to comfort and rolling resistance for now :)
