Just test rode an S-Works SL6 disk. I was hping to try the SL6 rim but the shop did not have it.
Damn it was light -- 6.6kg with pedals, size 56. QUESTION: for those who have tried or own both, does the rim model ride similarly to the disk model? I had never used disk brakes before, That so much of the weight of the bike was devoted to stopping (as compared to a rim model) was interesting. If the ride is similar (other than that), the same ride with, say, 300 fewer grams would be ike riding a rocket.
BTW, during the test ride, on a downhill, the seat post slipped and then collapsed, as some have reported of the new Tarmac. If and when I buy one, I'll have the shop use the carbon loctite as recommended. I guess it was a good test of the disk brakes.
