That grey industrial finish is amazing! Can't wait to see photos of one build up, but I've got high hopes for it :P

So glad Ive followed this. Was SOOO close to ordering a Venge in the teal with AXS. May hold off for possible new colors now. Really, really cool for 2020

Mixtape is still the coolest Tarmac paint job, IMO

You too can race in 32 holes alloy wheelset, the performance does not change

The C38 are still a great wheelset, I train and will also race on them when I can't be bothered running the 7.8s on my Allez.

All I can say is I hope to god the 2021 Tarmac has a rim-brake option. #deathtodiscs!

I think he's expecting new rev for 2021... so there is always a change it will be disc only... like the venge
2020 is just some new colorways

I expect the updated Tarmac will be disc only. From a manufacturer's perspective it probably doesnt make sense to invest in making two different bikes when you can just make one. It would be interesting to see sales figures of current rim vs. disc Tarmacs however - how agressive is the down turn of rime brake frames? What proportion of the market has/is turning to disc?

Discs are ugly, heavy, not as aero, reduce the snapiness of the ride, are painful to work on and only work slightly better than a dialed rim-brake setup. #deathtodiscs death to redundant technology! Rable rable rable!!!!

New colours are pretty much all fantastic. I was hoping the Dove Grey colour would be a little darker because that is going to get ruined! I'm trying to see if the marble effect can be had in the UK so far no luck.
