Bought a new Bike

Through a team buy I bought a 08 Tarmac Pro. The deal was too good to pass up. I wanted an S-Works but the deal was not as good on that purchase. I will pick it up in about a week so you will have to wait for pics. This is a bit different then the expert I bought a few months ago, I got a compact crank on this one as a clibing bike. It also comes with those weird specialized star roval wheels which are supposed to be really aero.

But it looks just like this one

Do you have any room in your place for your bikes? You have enough to open a bike shop.

Flip it. Are the specs the same as the website for the Tarmac Pro in Raw finish? Looks like a killer ride!

It is flipped. Some of the components may be different. The Specialized Carbon crank and wheels are new on the 08. But I think the site has the current specs, so yes. All Dura Ace except the brake calipers and fron derailer.

I wont get the bike till next weekend. Then I will post some pics. But the raw carbon looks pretty sweet. Im most excited about the wheels. They say they are really fast and aero. I already checked and they are definately stiff.
