You are viewing a Specialized Tarmac Pro that I had built up two years ago with a new Shimano Dura Ace 9000 group and Specialized's high dollar carbon crank set. The factory spec Tarmac Pro had SRAM Red 10-speed and a much less expensive crank set.I did not spare expense in the build, as even the cables and housing are Dura Ace. It is definitely an SL4 made from Specialized's Fact 10R carbon fiber. The entire frame, fork, and even the steerer tube are carbon fiber. The steerer tube has been left at maximum height, so there should be plenty of room for adjustment, should you so desire.
The bike is in superior condition. Thus, none of my bikes get a lot of use, and none get beat up by a heavy or inattentive rider. The bike has never been raced or crashed.I'm 68 years old and have been at this sport for more than 45 years. I know how to take care of my bikes. Just look at the photos. As mentioned above, most of the drivetrain and major components are Shimano's top-of -the-line Dura Ace. This group is from the 9000 series.
Even the cassette used in the build is Dura Ace, is 11-speed, and has 11-28 cogs. The crankset is the major exception to the Dura Ace line-up, being Specialized's very high level carbon fiber model in matching red, no less! With 172.5mm crank arms and Specialized mid-compact 52/36 chain rings.
The rings show some wear, but certainly not a great deal of wear or "shark tooth" profiling. The wear is mostly that the anodizing on the teeth has started to wear.
All of the bike's components are in excellent condition, mechanically and cosmetically. I used these wheels because they are among the lightest clinchers out there at a bit over 1400 grams, which is lighter than most all of my carbon fiber wheels, including my Zipp 303s. These wheels also offer a 19mm internal width, which gives an excellent ride and lower rolling resistance than narrower models. They also are tubeless compatible. Last, these wheels have mid-height toroidal profile and bladed spokes for very good aerodynamics, including stability in crosswinds.
The machined braking surfaces provide consistent braking. The wear indicator on the rims show that the wheels have received low use. If the American Classic wheels are not your "cup of tea, " I have various other options available, including wheels from Zipp (as shown in a couple of the photos), Reynolds and Roval.
Most, but not all, of these are carbon fiber models. I even have several sets with PowerTap power meters. Shoot me a message if you would like some options and upgrade prices.
Handlebar, stem and saddle options. The Specialized handle bar shown in the photos is a full carbon, "short and shallow" Aerofly model. Otherwise, the bike will come with a standard shape carbon model. I have 80, 90, 100 and 110 mm stems available. Not all are made by Zipp, but they are all from quality manufacturers, like 3T, FSA, etc.
The saddle shown in the photos is a Bontrager Ajna Elite (titanium rails) in 144mm width. Like the situation with the stem, I have other saddles available, including other Bontrager models in 128, 138mm and 154mm widths, and some of the Specialized models, like the Toupe and the Romin. I have a Romin that is black with red trim and undercarriage that looks especially good with the bike. There is no additional charge for substituting one of the optional saddles. The Specialized bottle cages shown in the photos ARE included in this sale.
The Speedplay pedals that appear in some of the photos are EXCLUDED from this sale. Though we can talk about including them as an upgrade/upcharge if you are interested in them. Local pick-up here in Austin is available, and is free, or course. You will find my packaging to border on the obsessive!
I have been asked the weight of the bike. It is 14.64 lbs.On my digital bike scale. This includes the bottle cages, but excludes pedals. This is a VERY light-weight bike. It is a rocket in terms of acceleration.
