Specialized of the week

Some bikes is just more successful than others. A lot depends on taste, marketing and what people can get. Bianchi roadbikes in Sweden, Colnago C59 or Specialized Tarmac or Cannondale Caad10 on Weightweenies, Cannondale or Trek here in Bergen. Canyon is big on a swedish forum (happymtb.org). Maybe not the best but most talked about and recommended.

Personally I don’t like Scott but I like Specialized. Or the look of it as I once tried a Scott Addict and it felt just perfect and don’t know if I can get a Specialized to fit me with their geometry. But can look at them. And specially one modell, Tarmac SL3, their best model. Can be built up very nice like this one:

5,58kg and not so special. frame is 906g

Nicely built:

Schmolke SL handlebar, Deda Zero100 stem, Deda perforated bar tape

The perfect matching Cannondale Hollowgram SiSL crankset, Tiso Biber front derailleur, KMC X10SL chain it looks like, Speedplat pedals and AX-Lightness bottle cage.

Ciamillo Negative Gravity GSL brakes (googled on them, so I found this bike) with Corima brake pads (lightest) braking on the Lightweight wheels with Tufo S3 Lite <215g tires

Sram Red rear derailleur and shifter and the bike is topped with:

a Deda Superzero seatpost with a Tune Speedneedle saddle.

Classy build with a lot of things you can lighten easily but still light. Good parts with attention to details. The only sad thing with this is the front plate on the stem is upside down 😉

If you liked this, want to see more and with a parts on scale, the photoalbum is here: Flickr

  1. riktigt snygg! Håller med om styrstammen men det som stör mig mest är nog Cannondale loggan på vevarna skulle vara perfekt med S-work vevparti istället.
