how did You remove the UCI Sticker that usually is above the frame size sticker?
Sorry mate.. Totally missed your post.

It's there on my bike.. Under the cage.
And yes it's filthy at the moment. Image

Thank you! Put some gummies on and found a proper backdrop. Think the gumwalls are gonna stick around for a while, what do you guys think?

Been thinking of changing from a CAAD to a Tarmac SL6? I've done a lot of reading on geometry charts but was wondering if anyone knows firsthand how they compare.

Absolutely lovely!! Thought strongly about this colour scheme before settling on the Sagan paintjob. Now I'm starting to have second thoughts...!

Good day !
I own both the CAAD 10 and the Tarmac SL6. Both in size 54. I am 1.8M tall / Saddle height 740mm . Fairly flexible.
I can say they are similar in stack and reach. And of course the Tarmac SL6 is slightly more aggressive i.e 2mm lower in stack / 1mm longer in reach. Been professionally fitted.

Both are great bikes ! I am sure it would be a great upgrade !

Let me know if you need anything further. Happy to help !

Tarmac SL6 with Schwalbe Pro One TT and its fake tanwalls ;)
Did you weight the tires? I'd like to know if these are as light as advertised.

Yes, I did.
In 25mm they are advertised at 205g, but they were 225g.

I do not like the look of the fake tanwalls, looks rather yellow-orangeish instead of a cotton tan.
I'll replace them with regular Schwalbe Pro One, and also put a 28mm in the back for added comfort... also the TT-version is not really an everyday tire, have been lucky so far without punctures over 500km.

But the thinner the tyre gets, I do not want to test my luck now in winter ;)
