Just to confirm that it is a 56 Size wise. And measurement from BB to Saddle top along seat tube is 834mm


Love your bike and i'm currently looking at the same - also in a 58cm. Can I please ask what your bike's measurement is from center of BB to top of seat, along seat tube?

Cheers,
Mark

Ah - thanks for the confirmation and for the measurement. I misread your original post but still good to know the details.

Are you specifically asking him, or are you looking for generic measurements of the 58 Tarmac Disc? I ask because I have one if you need help.
Thanks for the reply. My seat height would be at 84.5cm... so about an inch higher than his. I wondered whether 1) I might be hitting the limit of the seat post extenstion and 2) whether it would look a bit strange.

Could I ask what your seat height is on the 58cm Tarmac Disc? Any chance of a photo?

Cheers
Here’s mine. It’s only 80 though

This is useful as I’m 6’2 with a 807mm seat height and have been recommended a 58. This seems to confirm it. I have fairly long arms and 56 would be way too short.

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.

Not to take away the focus from the previous question, but have you guys experienced any bottom bracket creaking, yet? Mine started on the second ride. Shop said to "break it in" for a couple of weeks, then take it to them for adjustments. I would still like to be able to do my own servicing in the future; do anyone know the dimensions of the super tiny allen key of the three bottom bracket screws on the non-drive side?

No apology needed, this is a good question and I hope you find an answer!

I rode both. The rim brakes do work very well. I chose the disc because I believe that when the time comes to buy my next bike, almost everything high end will be disc, and rim brake bikes will be lower value. It’s a gamble, but that’s why I went disc.

Anyone know if the Men's Tarmac Disc Pro (just below S-Works w/Di2 Ultegra) was offered in a 2018 model?

Any idea if the pro disc frame will be available? I don’t see it on the website.

That's really smart, I wondered about the same thing. Tried a rim brake non-S Works Tarmac today. As expcted, braking = center mount rim < direct mount rim < disc. I think the proximate advantage of either direct mount or disc is wider tire clearance. My current Pinarello F10 with eecycles center mount brakes barely accomodates 25 mm tires (have to open the brakes to fit). Past that, with the extra weight penalty for disc, I'm hesitating on buying disc. Switching to disc also is a much more expensive proposition; I'd not be able to carry over my current eTap levers and very good Roval CLX32 wheels.
