Bike was 15lbs on the dot with a Zipp SL Sprint. I'm changing to Keo Blades which should put it under 15. Super happy hitting that with aluminum clinchers and a power meter.

That's not surprising at all... as I said in an ealrier post, I was super imspressed with the weight of that frame in stock build form, considering was an ultegra mechanical build and had the stock boat achor wheels.

So... i'm too lazy to dig through 86 pages...

Who has experimented with craming 28+ tires in their new tarmacs??? Very curious to see if anyone has maxed out some rim/tire/brake combos.

the fellow posting right above you has Conti 25's on his Tarmac, which surely measure upwards of 28... 28's should fit pretty easily.

I have 25mm Pro One tubeless on Pacenti SL23 rims (20.3mm internal) which measured north of 29mm on those rims. Plenty of clearance all round. I could almost definitely fit the 28mm labeled versions with decent clearance.

I am currently running Sworks turbo 28. I switched from 26 turbo cottons which I’ve used for the past year as I have been riding a lot of rough gravel dirt back roads around my house. The sidewalls hold up better and they feel better on those roads.

Hi all,

Just picked up a new 18’ disc S-Works and found out I’ll need to install a EW-WU111 to get Bluetooth to work. Will this unit replace the JCW-200 directly?

Thank you

Yes, I just swapped the WU111 for the junction and it worked fine.

I noticed over the weekend I started to develop a creak from the bottom bracket. Has been silent until now (about 1000 Miles) anybody experience the same? If so what’s the fix?

Hi all,

Quick question. I picked up my non-UL at the end of last week and on my maiden voyage on Monday evening I started to get a knocking from around the seatpost area when riding over rougher surfaces. I started after hitting a pothole on a descent so I'm guess it may be the internal DI2 battery. What way is it secured in the aero seatpost? Is therea proprietary mount?

Thanks

Yes, a proprietary mount comes with the frame. Good quality and adapted to the seatpost...

Thanks. I will have to investigate to see if it is the battery/mount that has come loose
