Amazing colors, I would totaly buy one. But I hate the fact that you just can't buy it, they are never in stock and even if you order one today you are lucky to get it by 2025! :).

I also find it interesting that the frameset doesnt' say S-works but it is still 12r Carbon.

Gotta make sure everybody knows how much money you spent on it. Wouldn't want people to think you bought a Pro level frame. Kidding aside, these prices are absolutely ridiculous.

Really unsure about the looks of this, but it only says specialized?

Makes your *$1k over the standard S-Works*-frame look like a peasants bike...

This thing though:

Is it that important to say "sworks"? It has a unique paint job which for me would give it more value.

The frame set for me is a lot better to look at than the whole build. The red on the rims is really not m thing.

Specialized instead of S-Works? Ewww I'd rather ride a Madone.

Looks incredible. Price is a punch in the nether regions.

Are they using Rapide CLX rear rim for both front & rear wheels or is this a new version? It's quoted at 60mm front, 60mm rear instead of 51/60? Visually looks same depth too so I doubt it's a typo.

I think it doesnt say S-Works for the Olympics. I saw a pic of Remco riding this frame a few days ago.
For the olympics in Rio, all Specialized sponsored riders also rode "specialized" branded bikes. The orange ones that changed colors with the heat.
Marketing stuff 🤷🏼‍♂️

You can just take a frameset of any colour and have it custom repainted to match this, you know. Will be a lot cheaper. I can sort of understand people wanting to get specific colourways when you just buy-and-done, but availability these days is so spotty that you will save money AND time by buying a colour you hate and giving it to the custom paint shop for 6 weeks.

Spesh is honestly just taking a p1ss nowadays with pricing. Can't blame them - they are taking advantage of the market conditions. But also can't praise them.

I am a little blind, but just realized that the full build is "SWorks" branded and the frames are "Specialized" branded
