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.
If that too would be a Fact 10r Carbon frame then, according to Specialized, it holds a 150 g penalty over the S-works 12r Carbon.

The “Sport” level frame has the round seatpost and 9R carbon, so it will be a little heavier than the Pro/Expert frames.

Ah good catch, would have to be the expert then.

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.

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.
Did the shop weigh the build before the sale? Interested in total weight. Also notice the rim brake pro uses Spec carbon crank, whereas the disc is Ultegra.

I ordered a pro, because we thought it was black on black, but the logo is a massive hologram. Some people might love that, some of my friends thought it was really cool, but it was far too much like my daughter’s unicorn stickers for me. Also, the saddle and bar tape have the “chameleon effect” too. I ended up returning it before we ever weighed it.

It DID have an Ultegra crankset.

LBoogie28... not that I know of. I wasn't there or I would have suggested it. I'm sure they will get more in, so I'll suggest it as soon as I see one.

Unicorn is exactly what I though when I saw it haha. :D
I haven’t seen it live but thought it looked quite cool with the partly exposed carbon.

That would be me who picked it up. I would weigh it but I don't have a bike scale.

I love this colour way - but the wheels - C38s, anyone know what they are like/weight? I wish they'd of put the CLX's on it....

Thanks!

I really didnt want a black bike or the hologram logo but its growing on me. I do like it on the wrap and handlebars though.
Been waiting forever for this bike to come out so I just bought it since it was allocated for me. Coming from a 2011 Roubaix SL2 Comp 8r so this is a huge upgrade for me.

I hear you. I had been waiting a long time too. I am riding a 2016 Roubaix. I’ve lost 50lbs since I bought that bike, so I’m ready to get more aero and lose weight on the bike too!

I’m now looking at building an S-works frame up with the Pro level components and wheels.
