Just found this discussion. Just built up a S-Works Tarmac SL6 disc that sits at 6.89kg with Hollowgram SISL (not SISL2) cranks, Power2Max power meter, pedals and cages. I'm not a huge fan of the murdered out look so I added some color with blue metallic vinyl. It can be removed at any time. The Hollowgram cranks was a cost saving feature because I came from Supersix Evo HiMod but works very nice. Pretty bad photo. I know.

Dura Ace Di2, XTR 9100 rotors (I like the look)

Uno 7 debadged stem, black ti bolts
SRAM red 11-30 cassette
Speedplay Zero SS pedals
Nice! Did the Spidering just slot straight into the Ceramic Speed bearing cups?

What size frame is it? I got a 56 fully built to 6.76kg with heavy CK45 Enve 3.4s.

Seeing that the bottom bracket on the SL6 is a true BB30 the Hollowgram crankset fits very nicely. I did install 140mm short spindle vs Cannondale's current 109. The weight is with stainless Zero pedals, cages, F3 Garmin mount and power meter. Knew there would posts claiming lighter weight with heavier components. Believe it when i see it, but the Specialized Power meter crankset is a lighter package then my Power2Max setup by at least 60gms. There's little left to mod outside of the frame modeule for weight savings. The bar, saddle, wheels, drivetrain are the lightest without going boutique $$$$$ except the the crankset\power meter.

Question @Mtbric,

Why are you running a cadence sensor? Your P2Max generates cadence as a requirement to measure power so it's essetially null and void.

Specialized Power meter crankset is also only fit with 68mm wide bb frame right?
That kinda lock you out from moving the crank to any future bb386 and bb86 frame in the future. isn't it?

I'm in need of a sizing advice on a Tarmac SL6.

1,80m with 87cm inseam, saddle hight (BB to top) is 76,5cm.
I've been riding Giant TCRs in size M since 2016. https://www.giant-bicycles.com/de/tcr-a ... enkit-2019
Reach: 383mm
Stack: 545mm
Top Tube: 550mm
Front Center: ~593mm (measured)
Stem lenght: 120mm with 15mm spacer benethImage

A Tarmac in 54cm would be almost identical in Stack & Reach, but the toptube is 10mm shorter (because of the steeper seat tube angle). My biggest worry is Front to Center, which is only 579mm. I do have some toe overlap on the TCRs already. My positions on the Giant is low and long with the saddle moved forward on the post.
So I don't know if a 56cm would be a better fit. With a slamed -17° stem at least.

I'm 181cm / 84cm and ride a 56 Tarmac SL6 with a slammed -17° stem. I haven't never ridden a comparable 54 Tarmac, but I'm sure that could fit me as well with a less aggressive 110-120mm stem.

Any calculations? I ended up at 1737g for the 56 frameset, including headset bearings, seatpost clamping hardware and thru axles. Used components weights found with Google and plenty of educated quess work.

Can't be so heavy? I would have bet about 300-350g less.
Since a few people in the thread were wondering. I just took delivery of a 2019 9r Comp frame (56cm). Weighs 1930g in the same config as listed above, frame, fork, seatpost, headset, thru axles, threaded bb, rear hanger. So 200g more than the Pro.

Hmm. Shop scales (Park Tools) actually read higher, putting at almost 7.8 fully built. My own scales (also Park Tools) put it at 7.60.

Not sure what is going on.

Praxis conversion BB weighs c. 130g, forgot about that.

Wish I'd weighed the frameset first!
Probably doesn't matter any more but yeah, acid mint paint job is definitely not adding 200g
