Currently on a 2011 Tarmac SL2 Elite (bottom of the barrel Tarmac frame) with Ultegra and custom hand built wheels.

185lbs. I am roughly 176cm, with a pants inseam of around 76cm, short legs!

Riding style is short and fast. 30 - 50 mile rides. Some triathlons. I like to pedal hard, and go fast downhill. I'm not the best climber, so a bike that doesn't typically climb well isn't for me.

My budget is $2,500 with no wheels, so i am mainly looking used right now online and LBS.

Bikes I am considering are below, all have Ultegra or higher groupset, no wheels:
  • Specialized Tarmac Pro (2015 or 2016)
  • Cervelo S5
  • Scott Foil
  • Storck Aernario Comp G1
  • Giant TCR Advanced SL 0
