My New-to-Me '16 Tarmac Pro Race w some temporary wheels on it.

I have a pair of DA9000/Belgium+ hand-builts on the way that will split time with this and my '16 Roubaix Expert until I decide on some 60mm carbon clinchers.

I'll be swapping out the S-Works crankset w the Quarq for a DA9000 in 177.5 w dual Pioneer shortly.

It's mid 16lbs right now, will probably settle at high 15lbs range when done.

I absolutely love the way the bike rides and the dark blue / orangey-red looks great in person.

Verny nice color.
I guess the only place where you can show of weight at a reasonable price if the groupset, start witl chain/cassette/brakes.

Hi Guys,

Newbie here, first post.

Been riding bikes since a kid, started as a mountain biker, then turned into a Roadie when taking up Triathlons in early 20's. Just bought my first Tarmac.

My other two bikes, an S-Works Shiv non-UCI and a S-Works Venge. Only ridden the Tarmac once last weekend and loving the differences between them.

Tarmac spec:

Frame: S-Works Torch Tarmac size 54.
Post:S-Works Carbon
Bars: S-Works Carbon Shallow drop
Stem:S-Works Carbon 110mm
Saddle: S-Work Romin
Group set: Full Sram Red Etap
Wheel set: Roval CLX 50 Clinchers
Tires: S-Works Turbo's
Pedals: Dura-Ace 9000
Cages: Specialized Carbons

Total weight-Pedals and Cages- 6.98kg

Hope you like the build as much as I do, was nervous considering my other two S-Works bikes are pretty low-key almost Stealth like.

Cheers Kenzie

Can't believe I missed this thread. There are some great bikes in here. I really like the variety of Tarmac builds.

I've posted pics of my Torch in other threads but here is the most recent taken during a 198 mile one day "training" ride this weekend. Not a lot of pictures of these frames in their marbled state. The color changing is much more than the air temp. The speed you're riding, time of day, direction, rain, etc causes the frame to spend a lot of time in the transition phase.


and one in full orange:


S-works Torch 56cm
SRAM E-tap
Quarq powermeter
Zipp Sprint stem
Zipp SL-70 aero bars
Zipp 404 NSWs
Sella Italia Kit Carbonio flow
Look Keo Blade 2 carbon
Supacaz bar tape

Weight ~ 7.17kilos

Praxis chainrings

@Cerro I don't know exactly...but i would guess around 6.2-6.3kg with the Hyperons (clinchers)
and 5.8-5.9kg with LW tubs (Obies Schwarz Ed).
My previous matte black tarmac weighed 5.85kg w the LWs (no heavy Torch paint, but heavier stem, saddle etc).

LOVE the torch editions! I just ordered a torch Evade, wish I could have afforded the bike the shop had.
