My SL3 got some new sneakers, been on a new wheel kick across a bunch of the stable of late. 3 bike now have tubulars since I discovered tubeless tubulars that are not race tires.

The SL3 also got some BB30 Rotor cranks since last shot in the thread.

Grabbed the 58CX Rolf Tubulars. They are the CX with a little extra beef in the build, but I am 200 lb too. Barely used, and my 30 mile test ride with 23 Vit CX/SC tubed race tubulars surprised me considering I gave up on 23s long time ago. ;) Will order some Donnelley LGG 25 tubeless tubular when these 23s give up the ghost.

Got my SL7 last week, colour dusty blue pearl/cast blue metallic, honestly quite disappointed... colour doesn't look special, and does not look anything like the picture on Specialized website... Hope to get a chance to see it in the sun one of these days since all we had since I got it is rain.

Hope it'll grow on me, haven't ridden it yet due to some issues and again, the rain.

A new-to-me blurple SL6 relegated the SL5 to race day duties earlier this year. The SL6 is definitely a heavier bike because of the disc brakes, but the handling feel is A+ despite being a bit less direct.

I missed this somewhere. What's the advantage of this derailleur hanger over the stock one? Use of larger cogs(?)

Thanks!

If you have a shop selling Specialized near you, contact them or just walk in and order the part.

Alternatively this shop is usually pretty well stocked on spares: https://webshop.bestbike.de/

Thanks, the paintjob was the final thing that sealed the deal and I sold my 2020 Venge :)
It's "gloss hyper-oil chameleon-tarmac black"

Some nice pics of the frame over at Nanobike, didn't get this from there but drooled over the pics..

The SL6 tarmac is an awesome ride, I'm sure you'll enjoy it! Hope the weather allows you to keep going on rides for a while... Waiting for my SL7 to get repainted here

It truly is, I thought the Venge was really nice but this tops it even though they share the same geometry.
The SL6 is also nicer to look at hanging on our living room wall :D

Remember, when your bike's done, we're waiting for pics!
