Absolutlely love the bike... The SL3 frame is so stiff and fast, yet comfortable. The integrated S-works crank w/ ceramic BB is the most under-reviewed piece of this frameset. The power transfer from my pedals to the back wheels is instant and explosive...

Not much room for much more weight savings other than wheels, but not upgrading those anytime soon..
Hope you all enjoy!!

Nice bike. How tall is that headtube? Looks huge, like 190mm or something

sounds about right, it does look taller in the pic (more than in person)... this is not the "team geo" SL3, so the only difference is the head tube is slightly taller.....

Top weight given the size and wheels! Looks damn fast.

Big fan of Spec - especially the quality of their other products that they fit the frame out with.

205 mm.
My Team Geo 58's is only 170. Huge difference between the two, and I was torn.

Very nice - loose the red stripe on the stem, get a carbon chainset spider, black chainrings and black cables and you're good to go :)

Never seen a bike look good with white cables it just make the look like a dept store bike!

Being the owner of the Saxo kit, I have to say love the bike :thumbup:

If it was mine, I would wipe away the red stripe on the stem ... nothing else ... and ride away!
