I've been waiting for 4 maybe 5 days to see who posted about this first. I think you are the winner, unless it's someone in one of the other sub-forums I never go to.

On one hand, Specialized claims the SL7 is 45 seconds faster over 40k than the SL6. On the other hand, that claim was for the S-works build with the Aerofly II bars and Roval Rapide CLX's, and the round bars and shallow aluminum wheels of the Comp build should be quite a bit slower. I could replace them, of course, but that would make it a $6000-$7000 bike.
