Can someone point me to the geometry chart. The one on the Specialized web site looks wrong. The 61cm has a STA of 76 deg... Can't be true.

The website I'm looing at has the 61cm bikes with a 73 deg seat tube angle.

Specialized Tarmac Pro Frameset 54cm
910g Frame (hangar, bottle cage bolts, internal cable)
357g Fork (uncut)
176g Seatpost
I just picked up a 58cm Tarmac Pro myself, haven’t weighed the fork or post, but the frame w/ hanger and bolts was 1040g.

OK this makes more sense.

The only reference on here I could find was a 58cm Ultralight at 879g. I would imagine the SWorks would be in the mid 900’s?

My 52 Expert (I stripped to build with eTap) was 920g with hanger, cage bolts, seat wedge, and mech cable guides.

Any idea what the weight difference is like between say 56 vs 61? I am looking at the Pro Disc model. What's the Tarmac Pro Disc weight for the stock model? ty

You just have to search the forum a bit. In the Tarmac Disc thread someone posted a 56 Pro Disc was 17.42lbs ready to ride, or 16.4lbs without pedals/cages/Garmin mount/sensors

During a ride yesterday the bottom bracket started to creak, it felt like the ceramicspeed bearing is shot (I've been through many bb issues with different bikes)... just wondering if this is covered under warranty? I know Ceramicspeed is offering 4 yrs warranty for their parts, but in this case should I go after Specialized? The bike was purchased 5 mos ago from my LBS with about 1300 miles on it. Thanks.

How different is S-works from normal tarmac? I believe the weight difference is quite negligble other than bragging the "S-WORKs" logo...believe the difference is minimal? Anyone can enlighten me on this..just curious... probably quality of the FACT carbon..S-works Fact 12....Tarmac pro...Fact 11?

I personally think Ceramic Speed bottom brackets are not fantastic, but I work on and install them a lot. You don't need to replace it. Every CS bottom bracket comes with a tiny syringe loaded with their own grease. It's like a Chris King BB injection tool idea, but much slower, and a lot more work. Pry off the seal with the corner of a razor blade......try not to bend or warp it. Completely degrease and clean the balls and races. Let them dry, then inject the grease fully into the bearings. work it in, move the balls around, inject grease everywhere whether it fits or not. Re-install seal. It will work silently and smoothly again. Your Specialized dealer should have dozens of those syringes laying around.
