Specialized Tarmac SL


!www.cyclingnews.com presents the 92nd Tour de France. Drool, drool, this is an incredible frame called the Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL. $8K for just the frame and fork. It is supposed to be amazing. Mark Wong thinks they are very cool.
It is supposed to be the stiffest bike out there and incredibly light too. The full bike will be amazing as well with...
_a Tarmac SL 'dream bike' will also make its debut, complete with: a S-Works FACT carbon crank that's said to be 165 grams lighter and 11 percent stiffer than its Dura-Ace equivalent; the Barmac FACT one-piece bar and stem, no brick either at 349 grams and to be available in 11 different sizes; the 155 gram Toup? saddle (for your bum, not your dome!); and Roval Rapide carbon wheels, tipping the scales at 1,550 grams per pair, with Campagnolo's Record group gracing the rest of the dream machine._

  1. I just spoke with my local specialized rep. This bike is being ridden in the Tour De France by Levi Leipheimer. This bike is turning the industry upside down in price performance. Should be available to the public in Jan 06. The dealer training is taking place in two weeks. Expect this bike to be VERY limited production.
    The 2006 S-Works Roubaix is the bike to consider, very high modulus carbon fiber, then you can build it with the new Specialized Carbon crank and bar/stem combo. Don’t get this bike confused with the standard Specialized Roubaix.
