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).

Looks fast standing still!

I like the stripe of colour on the rims matching the paint! :mrgreen:

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 :)

Let me attach some recent pictures.

1) I've dropped cockpit to lowest position for a while, it's absolutely ok for me, but i couldn't stand the 1cm uncut fork. But i didn't wanted to cut it because that can draw back potential buyer... So i have it back on second lowest position (1 cm spacer underneath).

2) I've bought 15mm setback seatpost, my god, it feels so much better for me. (35mm seatpost for sale)

3) Tires may need change, i wish i can get some tanwall like turbo, but i need to stay tubeless.

Another option may be to buy some lighter tires, does it make sense to go from gp5000tl to 2020 pro one?

4) Garmin varia rtl510. So happy, good tool. Still waiting for delivery of this mount
