Well, finally got the addition to the stable...Specialized S-Works Roubaix SL. Went to the LBS and did final "touch-up" fit / finish this A.M., did the 1st shakedown ride for 20mi. in pretty strong winds. Will give a ride report after more meaningful distance and climbs.
Here's the picture:
The tale of the tape:
Specialized carbon seatpost
SRAM Red group, 172.5 compact crank in Red "Black"
Dura Ace 7850 CL wheels with Dura Ace 7900 11-28 cassette
Ritchey 110 carbon stem
Ritchey 42cm Carbon Curve bars
Selle Italia SLK saddle
Speedplay Zero stainless pedals
Specialized cages (waiting for delivery)
With the cages and pedals it should weigh aprox. 15lbs.
Will trim the steerer when we are sure the setup is settled.
The flat black finish kinda' reminds me of the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird...
What do y'all think?
