Tarmac SL7 Release date

Upgrades: SRAM Red power meter crank, and Enve 5.6 disc wheels (tubeless Pirelli Cinturato 26c with 40ml Orange Seal).

The crank upgrade cut roughly 0.5 to 0.7 pounds:

No idea about the wheels, but likely cut some weight there too.

After visiting the fitter I’ll put the Enve aero handlebars on.

Great! I got the Expert – same carbon as the pro – I already had the CL50 Roval wheelset. Waiting on the Rapide aero handlebars. The bike is tanstastic! My setup comes just at 8kg. Favero pedals are heavy. :grinning:

Mine is at 8.4kg / 18.5lbs :biking_man:

My 2020 SL6 comp di2 and enve 5.6 disc are an amazing pair. Love it everytime I ride it. Was back at my parents and brother wants to buy it from me when/if I get an Sworks SL7. Told him ok but I am keeping the wheels.

Yesterday in the mountains I ran the wide 32mm external Bontrager Aeolus Pro 3V wheels with Conti 5000 TL 32c tires. This is the width of tires inflated, tubeless with Vitoria Air-Liners:

About 34.5mm and I still have about 5mm of clearance on both sides of the chainstays. I’ve got a gravel event coming up, and by ‘gravel’ i mean dirt roads with a small amount of loose rock. These wheels should be a great all-around set especially on some of the fast windy descents in canyons that we have out here in Cali.

New “Speed of Light” collection includes a new Tarmac SL7 color/set-up, if you have 15K (!!!) burning a hole in your pocket.

I would get upset but now there are just two reasons that I can’t get it. Hope it makes someone happy.

Fortunately it’s completely not my style because then I would be sad that I have made many bad life choices and not having 15k usd for a bike.

Only if they had di2 and was in stock? Haha kidding… sort of

Thank you for not wanting Comp Rival because two weeks ago I needed a bike and in stock for the win. Best/only win of my season :rofl:

As salty as I am about limited stock I managed to find a Comp Diverge in my size. Gravel gang apparently.
