Specialized Tarmac SL by Coach Lee
With the Fulcrum wheels and standard Dura Ace package the bike weighed in a little over 16 pounds. Not a super light but light nonetheless. The Tarmac has traditional road geometry and knowing I was going to be in the mountains a while I moved the saddle back 2 millimeters as it helps with climbing a bit to engage more of the hammies and glutes and also as I am not much of a descender I like to get my butt back on the seat when going down mountains.
The bike felt great from the start with light and responsive actions and very effortless on the climbs. I reached speeds of 45 MPH and the bike tracked very well and was stable with no sign of speed wobbles from it or the rider. A miracle, I know. The way the frame was constructed it was extremely responsive to the out of the saddle accelerations. I used it for one crit race as well and it felt super quick out of the turns without any softness felt with some road frames. The entire AEG Cycling team is on them this year as well and using the Nude Carbon color way.
