    Tarmac SL3

    Is there any drawbacks for a clyde getting a SL3? I m just curious about this particular Specialized bike.

    As long as it fits you, no. Just take the wheels in after a couple hundred miles or so and have them retensioned and you should be happy.
    It doesn't get harder, you just go slower.

    Great bikes, very stiff which is not such a bad thing for a clyde. Had a demo this past spring, put about 200km on it. Very nice bike just didn't fit me very good, felt alright while riding it but paid for it after.
    Best thing about cycling is when I'm at work I'm thinking of cycling, when I'm cycling I'm thinking about cycling.

    I have a regular Tarmac and love it. A little over 4000 miles on it.

    Can't afford the SL3...
