I know it's just another Tarmac, but its a foolproof race bike. Its been with me for almost 3 years now. I'm enjoying discbrakes at the moment, but this is still my go to bike. This might be the last rimbrake Tarmac so will just keep it.
Thanks again for looking.

Great bike but please removal the awful sticker that says to look at the manual.

I’m baffled by your choice of Campagnolo with an SRAM crank? What’s the logic? And how smooth is it and the shifting quality?

Great bike, curious on the Sram/Campag mix but each to their own!, I can't get past the bar tape wrap behind the shifters though..

I wanted a true bb30 crankset so I can use the ceramicspeed bb30 bearings that came with the frame without using adaptors and spacers. I'm a campy user, but didn't mind using sram cranks on this build and lighter too. The shifting quality is on par to my other bike with full campy drivetrain.

Thanks. I see a lot of Shimano/Sram mix and Shimano/Campagnolo mix, doesn't really bother me as long it works well and can save weight.

Thinking of upgrading the stock seatpost to a Darimo T1 Loop Aero Seatpost for Specialized Tarmac, could save another 100g.

My bartape got short didn't put the small strip of bar tape wrap behind the shifter clamps, won't miss that next time when I replace with new ones.

Great weight on your build!

Praxis chainrings are the best non-campy rings I have used on a campy electronic drivetrain. That said, I found the weight sacrifice, shifting and aesthetics worth it by going with a campy crankset.

Do yourself a favour and learn how to wrap bar tape properly, i.e. without the small 3" piece of tape which manufactures supply. See here for a link on how to wrap 👍🏻

What are your thoguhts on the MCFK stem? Any comparisons to how it feels versus the stock S-Works stem?

And I add thoughts between Mcfk stem vs Ax Lightness stem?

Haven't tried s-works stem. I used deda superleggero stem before, didn't notice any flex when using mcfk and ax-lightness. Both are stiff enough for me. But tried the darimo and can feel it flex.
