LOL - they have now removed the claim from https://www.specialized.com/gb/en/new-tarmac but they obviously can't edit or forgot to edit the Youtube video - it is still in there!

I just received the SWorks Chameleon Green Frameset in sz 56.
I quite like the look of the green frame - can you post pics for us? Cheers.

Given that the 733g frame claim was pulled straight out of thin air...

would someone post a picture of new tarmac with 30c tires on it?

There's another option for those looking for direct mount brakes... today, SRAM announced DM brakes.

Those Sram dm brakes look very similar to the TRP oem brakes on page 18 .

Since it's popped up with a direct copy of the R9100 brake release lever on it I'm wondering if there were some patent issues with Shimano and licences to be wrangled for before they could get something to market.

Goddamn, that sick paint job, but it doesnt seem to be the Torch paint that reacts to changing temperatures, seems like a regular transition paint scheme. Anyone have info on the weight for the SRAM DM brakes?

Oh nvm, 326g for a set, thats not very "SRAM" like. Surprised to see it heavier than the DA DM brakes.

Anybody know if it's possible to use Campag EPS on the SL6 frameset without modification. I'm pretty sure that the electronic ports on the previous Tarmac models were too narrow for the EPS connectors and was just wondering if this is still the case with the new SL6? Ta.

Just picked up my S Works UL complete bike. I had my LBS to change the wheels to CLX50 for me. Out of the box at 6.25kg for a size 56 and 6.48kg with K Edge XL Garmin mount, a pair of cages and Speedplay pedals. It’s my first Di2 bike hope I’ll like it. :)
