2011 S-Works Tarmac SL3
A hot bike to start the new year off right! This bike has actually been in the owner’s hands for a few months now – but it’s just too cool to not share…
The sharp-eyed among our readers will notice that this is not a stock build. This was a custom-spec build from the frame up emphasizing performance, weight, and ease of adaptability/interchangeability with his other bike. Here’s the details of the build:
Frame/Fork: Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL3 (size 56)
Group: Shimano Dura Ace 7900 Compact (50/34, 11/28)
Wheels: Shimano Dura Ace 7850-c50-cl Carbon/Alloy hybrid
Pedals: Shimano Dura Ace SPD-SL 7900 (not pictured, but current)
Handlebar/Stem/Seatpost: Ritchey Superlogic Carbon
Tires: Continental Gran Prix 4000 s 700×23
Saddle: Specialized Toupe’ Pro w/ Carbon rails (not pictured, but current)
Bottle Cages: Specialized S-Works Carbon x 2
What’s it weigh? Just a shade over 15 lbs – ready to ride (with pedals and bottle cages). That’s with 50mm deep clincher wheels – not uber-light tubulars. And, yes: it’s fast. Very fast.
