Did you have the opportunity to weight the Hunt wheels? I have seen some under claimed weight, but that were review weights, curious to see how the 'public' wheels perform.

My Hunt 30 Carbon Aero Disc wheelset came in at 1460g instead of 1378g claimed, they were also only 19mm internal width rather than 21mm.

I sent them back and got a pair of Light Bicycle 46mm X 28mm instead which came out at 1435g with DT 240 hubs.Image

How's the road feel? Everything on paper and in pictures for the bike is amazing to me, but I have not been able to test ride one. I know it's handling is in my strike zone, as I love the Allez, but given it's weight and how bad the Emonda feels (to me) I'm curious about impressions on feel for the bike.

That is a nice looking bike. For some years now I’ve not been sure whether I like Specialized’s ”modern” frame colors, the traditional style has always been a firm favourite of mine. But this frame is expectionally stylish.

This Pro level model looks good. With saddle, bar tape and logos reflecting in holographic rainbow colours. And it comes with Ultegra Di2.

10r rather than the S-works 12r carbon though, according to the website.

Seems to have the same S-Works FACT seatpost? With a round seatpost and a threaded BB, the non-S-Works SL6 Disc would have been the ultimate road bike for me.

I thought, the "pro disc" model also get the advantage of a powermeter.. didn't they talk about it when they released the sworks disc back in march?

Wouldn't mind the Tarmac Disc Sport, just for the frame. Wonder what the weight would be for this one and if it's the same frame throughout the range.

My local shop sold one of these last night... I didn't see it in person (got to the shop about 5 minutes after the owner took it home) but the shop owner showed me pics he took and it looks pretty awesome.
