Spez dealers don't have as it comes with a bike and not with the bar.
Spez dealers sell it separately now.

I'd love to hear a comparison of the V3RS versus a Tarmac SL7. Any opinions?

SL7 too common, V3RS more unique with some heritage:)
Both bikes are great, V3RS has more forgiving geometry (stack)

Not sure many wouild drop 20k+ for a sl7 and a v3rs. I had both of them on my list but went with the V3RS mostly as I preferred the looks more and it's 'different'

Was also looking at both.Had a few rides on the sl7 and have to agree with what the forums are saying.Uncomfortable due to the seatpost,front rim had me a bit worried with the rim overlapping the front tire the way it does.My V1 and V2 are the only bikes I have sold that I regretted to the point I bought them back.
Added to it all it is also cheaper for me to build up the V3RS than a sl7 made the decision easy not to follow the sheep.

Had a sl6 and have to agree the sl7 is less tarmac and more Venge.If you really want the specialized I would get a sl6 with a aero bar or just look for a Venge.

Already got the SL6 with CLX50s and ultegra 8070 di2.
Looking for the next, will build from frame up.

What "heritage" does a V3RS have?

He probably means the Colnago name (which now also finally has a TDF victory under its belt!) which has a longer storied history than Specialized. You're correct in that the V3RS being a newer frame doesn't itself have a whole lot of history behind it...

Sure, Colnago heritage, geometry..i know these are made in Asia frames and Ernesto sold his business, but still you know who stands behind the product, what are his oppinions etc. Whether it means something to you is individual.

Heritage is subjective, that' s fine. But what' s so special about Colnago geometry?

Not so aggressive and more sizing options.

Tend to have a slightly slacker HT angle than is currently fashionable, some people interpret this is feeling more stable, others that it feels slower to turn

Anyone know when 2021 models for V3rs will be release? Any new color designs maybe? I'm still waiting for frozen blue (like C64) or rediish (like V2r was). Would love to have one color bike...
