ToffieBoi, nice Rotors. How do those chainrings shift with Di2?

Got a good reason to change wheels from chinese carbon tubulars to Enve 65 tubular wheels and handlebar to Enve Compact from 3T Ergonova (did not like the ergonova anyway). Weight is now somewhere 6.9kg. This was one mean machine before, but now it is flying.


This was my absolute favorite Tarmac colorscheme... until i saw OPQS's newest frames. I still would pull the trigger on one of these in a heartbeat though!

Here's my Tarmac from last year, on an older build. I'll post an updated photo when I'm finished with my new build.

I'm new to the whole forum thing but here we go. The bike came with Shimano 105 components and FSA Cranks. I thought it sucked, I mean I liked the feel of the bike but it just didn't work that well with the gearing or shifting so I went with a pretty much Shimano Ultegra 6800 group set and Wheelset.

Hi All,

Been browsing the site for a while as I have been building this bike up slowly. Here are some very amateur pictures of the finished product and a list of everything I used. I don't know the weight. I am hoping under 7kg though

Also, I have put some red tape just where the cables are rubbing until my little frame protector goodies show up.

Complete bike specifications

Stem: Zipp Service Course SL BB 120mm

Rear derailleur: Dura-Ace 9000
Cassette: Dura-Ace 9000 11-25t
Chain: Dura-Ace 9000

Saddle: Prologo Nago Evo Pas 141 Tirox Saddle Hard Black
Seatpost: S-Works
Bottle cage: Tacx Tao Light Bottle Cage Black

Future Changes -

I have just purchased a set of ZIPP 101 Wheels that I will train on and keep the Mavics for racing. Just waiting for the new cluster to arrive before I can put them on. Also got some GP4000s Tyres coming for the Mavics and will put the GatorSkins on the Zipps. Also ordered a Stages Dura-Ace 9000 Power Meter. That should be here in 2 weeks. Probably change out the cockpit also in the near future to Zipp SL145 and Zipp Carbon Bars.
