I don't usually mind that paintjob (I mean, I would never ride it, but still, I find it quite well made), but I think it doesn't really go well with the new SRAM, nor with gumwalls..
Theory:
Gumwalls are polarizing, you either like them, or they're such a distraction that it ruins everything else.

That hilltop setup is also too much for me.. Too many clashing bits all demanding attention.

Very nice bike! You set it up well and I personally love the paint job. I don't think anything goes with the new SRAM chainrings, they're not attractive at all. That being said I'm sure it's a superb groupset and I envy you for not having to chase wires through the frame.
Its not my bike and I didn't set it up or choose any of the parts... I just took the pics. Thanks though. I wouldn't choose this particular paintjob for myself, but I appreciate that Specialized is always willing to try and push the envelope and they release these special editions and the champion edition bikes for their riders that win WC's and grand tours, etc...

Here's another one I photographed for Hilltop Bicycles, the Anna van der Breggan WC celebration bike. These are the wheels and tires that the owner normally uses... he did a gravel/mixed road event here in NJ, called The Hell of Hunterdon just a few days before I shot the bike, so he still had those wheels and tires on.

That mixtape bike would be mint with a blacked out build kit and tyres

Hi all,

I’m thinking about selling my SL5 Chameleon and buy a SL6 Disc. Anyone knows when new colors for the S-Works Frameset will be announced?

Regards

The chameleon version they have of the sl6 is pretty sweet unless you are looking for something different this time.

That color looks great ;-) not sure about the graphics. I’m considering a ‘acid red gloss chameleon’ but the ‘acid’ looks quite pink. Need to see them in real life first i guess

There is the new Sagan edition black/grey that looks really good and a white version. If that's your thing.
