Maybe this has already been asked but does anyone know if Specialized intend to provide a zero setback seatpost for the SL6? Think I might have seen one on Dan Martin's bike but I'm not sure. Ta

They are available and in good stock on the dealer end site.

Bummer, both that one and the teal/black one I like better than any of the US market colors.

“Need to know someone 😉”, “super rare”. Ha, what a load of rubbish. There’s nothing special about them at all, they’re just regular service parts that anyone can order. It’s available in 2 lengths, 320&380mm. Just go into any Specialized dealer and order one. These are the part numbers; S184900003 320mm
S184900005 380mm.

I was riding today and someone was saying that they bought an ultralight frameset. It was the same color as mine. Matte black with white lettering. I thought the ultralights were only made with grayed lettering?

The ultra-light should have a silver reflective lettering.

I think the white and the silver are very close in color... Mine's an UL, (I had my LBS to swap out the CLX32 to the CLX50). Sometimes the "S-Works" lettering looks white to me, but in some angles they are silver.

Can anyone give me some pointers on fitting the EE brakes? The instructions that come with them are for a previous version with U shaped spring - these have coil springs. It talks about tightening both axles nuts with a 13mm spanner but on the latest version only the left axle nut has the flats to do this. I assume they have changed it so you only need to do the left one so you can align the cable mount?

Both axles also now 6mm, whereas instructions indicate right axle as 5mm.
