Here's my new Tarmac. Previously owned an Aeroad CF SLX with UDi2. This bike might not be much quicker but feels incredible. Was not expecting to feel such a difference using the same wheels. I'm a happy man! Too bad I have to endure a harsh Scandinavian winter before I can really go full gas on this beauty :lol:

2018 S-Works Tarmac SL6 Sagan Superstar 54cm
Dura-Ace R9150 53/39 with 11-28
120mm Zipp Sprint SL
S-Works Aerofly bars
S-Works Romin Evo Sagan Saddle
Tacx Deva Carbon bottle cages
Powertap P1 pedals (heavy so will change power meter to something lighter - any ideas?)
ENVE SES 4.5 Clinchers with Michelin Power Comp 25mm + latex tubes or Roval CLX 64's tubulars with Vittoria Corsa Speed G+ 25mm

Weight is 6.68kg with the Rovals and around 6.8kg with the ENVEs.

Hey everyone! apparently this is my first post (weird, i thought i had posted before)

I got my SL6 Expert as a warranty replacement from my 2014 SL5 last year. Size 54, and red was the only color

Itś currently at 7.4 kgs . A lot of parts came from the previous SL5, except for the brakes.
Dura Ace 9100 Shifters and chain
Ultegra R8000 FD, RD, DM brakes and Cassette
Specialized Expert Handlebar and Stem (110mm, 42cms)
Campy Zonda Wheels (1555g actual)
FSA SL-K Light BB30 w 52/36 rings (624 all inclusive)
Look Carbon Blade 2 Pedals (CR axle)
Specialized Power Saddle
Specialized Turbo tyres
Elite Cannibal bottlecages x2

That's about it. i've since solved the spacers issue...

Any ideas for new wheels? something around 40-50mm. usual ride for me is 4500ft of gain and 60-70k, but this bike wants to go fast...

That looks great... throw some 40-50mm carbon wheels on it and take a pic with the drive side out and it's all done.

I'll probably go the season with the rovals it has now. Solely because I spent a lot of my budget if not all on the bike itself. I'd like a nice 40mm wheelset next season. Maybe another set of Rovals. Unsure for now.

Thank you.

Yea... I hear you. I've got a set of nearly new 50mm Yoeleo's I'm trying to move, if you're interested... :) Either way, that is a great bike. Is the lettering silver or white?

I photographed a new S-Works SL6 tarmc disc with Etap AXS for my local bike shop the other day. The white/silver fade is reallly, really nice.
