Thanks so much! You bring back memories. I thought the specialized alles epic was the best bike at its time and was copied by trek with their 2100. You are right specialized has always been an innovator and have fun bikes to ride.
You're welcome.... now that I think a little more about it. I also love how Specialized does limited edition bikes for their rider's to commemorate big wins. I know that a lot of manufacturer's do special bikes for the final day of the tour if a rider is going to win a jersey, but I don't really recall many of them then offering those bikes for sale. Specialized does World Champ bikes, TDF bikes, Giro bikes, heck... they ever did a sepcial Roubaix bike for Boonen, several times. I think that kind of stuff is cool. I've known a few pro bikers and for the most part they usually just view the bike as a tool, get a new tool each year... but somewhere I hope some of them save the special bikes that commemorate some of their biggest professional acheivements.

I believe Contadore said he would never depart with his Giro winning SL3 Tarmac.

Thanks.... this was along the D&R canal that runs from Trenton, NJ to New Brunswick, NJ and connects the Delware river to the Raritan river. It is a combination of dirt, crushed stone and cobblestones in some sections.

Busted out the proper camera this afternoon for some good pics. Man I love this bike... 3 rides on it and it just performs so well. It handles just like the SL5 did, but is a tick more comfortable on the bumpy chattery stuff. It seems to hold speed well, perhaps as well as my 1st generation Venge did. I really can't wait for the roads around here to get a little better and pop on some good road tires. The Rubino Pro's are good but not the same as Corsa's. I've also got a good bike scale coming, so I'll have a weight soon.

Very nice bike... Imho the SL6 haven't aged at all. When they introduced it back then I thought it was probably the most stunning bike out there and after all these years I still think so, especially in this colourway.

Gorgeous bike! Are those the stock decals that come with the rims? I have a pair of the same wheels but my decals are different from yours (Single 'DT SWISS' decal across valve instead of double like yours)

Thanks. They are the stock decals that came with the wheels. I have also seen the version as you're describing on yours and I think it was a change that DT Swiss made to differentiate one model year from another. If you scroll back through their instagram feed, you'll see the different graphics at different points in the history of the feed.

So... I did a little research and based on this post, it seems that the double decal wheels were only available to sponsored athletes or teams.
