Is the angle of the Chain stay en seat stay not to small on a 52frame with 50 Roval wheels like the specialized tarmac pro?

Has anyone heard anything on the aero of the new Tarmac vs. the Allez Sprint. They say the Tarmac is the same aero as the old Venge. I heard a reference of the Sprint being the same aero as the old Venge in low yaw conditions with the Aerofly handlebar and a -17 degree stem.

Visually very similar.

The stock Di2 bikes all have terrible Di2 cabling and I'm shocked Specialized haven't done something cleaner or integrated the Di2 more cleanly.

I'll post some photos of the bike I built from a frame up soon.


Agreed that the stock ultralight bikes had the Di2 setup phoned in on a massive level. Extra cable length outside the tape...just messy job overall. So much potential for a clean job and they dropped it on the execution.
I think a lot of that has to do with shimano dictating the parts list. The lack of cable ports in the bars is dissapointing tho.

Tried to place an order for a 52 Sagan Superstar today and was informed that Specialized will not produce anymore in that color scheme. It is considered a limited edition.

hahaha... Yea, because he won the WC again. Did you really think they'd continue making the color scheme commemorating the 2nd win? He's the ONLY person to win 3, back to back to back. There's NO way that Specialized is gonna miss the opportunity to give him a special bike and sell it to us.

I actually heard from Ron, the designer of the paint scheme that Sagan likes the "Superstar" paint so much that he doesn't want a new one.

Ron told me the same thing... but I still have a feeling that Specialized will doing another one. I just can't imagine that they will miss the oppurtunity to do a custom paint scheme for such a rare event.

Yeah, that's the seat post. Although Specialized don't claim a weight other than "below 800g" which is on their website. The rest of the weights are all from journalist's articles.
