Yes, your LBS will have the 2014 catalog if you pay them a visit. There's not much on the interwebs though. Here are a few of the tarmac's

Sweet! If you dont mind me asking, how much does a frame like that from overseas cost?

MSRP is $3500, it's not anything special... part of the 2014 Specialized line, I just got my grubby paws on one in the first shipment from Taiwan? (or wherever they make them)

Picked up a couple of tubes and Co2 cannisters at my LBS. Bought Mavic OPs w/Ultegra hubs and a new Ultegra cassette 12-25 last week - First ride with the new gear was Monday.

I bought a used 54cm Giant TCR bike so my kid's friend can come and ride with us. First ride this past Tuesday that went really well, did 14 miles and he actually got up a bunch of hills. First time the kid has been on a bike in 8 years.

In the photo you posted it appears to be neon-yellow-greenish, but in the other photo it looks to be yellow-orange which would be far more acceptable. Definitely post a color accurate photo when you get it please.

hopefully it's more of a yellow green... It's listed as "Hyper yellow/asphalt/blue"

Whoa! must have!!! I may be hitting the road with 100% travel again in April, this thing would be perfect.

Took a risk, company closed up shop last week. I'm expecting the product to be fine, but definitely a bit of a gamble.

EVOC travel bag. Bought this one b/c it can fit my 29er too.

The thought of bringing my bike to new places where I normally wouldn't be able to even exercise is getting me pretty hyped up. I paid a really good price on Wiggle, so hopefully it ships and arrives on time(its oversized).

OK, thanks. My specialized guy isn't local so it'll be a few weeks before I see him again. I just got a 2013 so I'm not in the market but I'd just like to see the new colors and such.

Those travel bags are awesome! I've never seen those before.

Nice buy! love those giro's!

MarkThailand 08-09-13 10:46 PM

I suppose this would be my latest purchase.

Last month, I crashed into a van - I was riding at over 35 kmh (22 mph) when I applied both front and rear brakes and could only slow down to 25 kmh before crashing. It was a straight T collision and I was on the verge of doing a front wheelie when I crashed. Because it was a van, I did not flip over the van but the impact was spread among the front wheel, front handle bar that dissipated the crash to the frame, and my helmet and the van window that shattered, and my chest and shoulders on the van window frame. I suppose I was lucky in that I could walk away from the accident - in fact, I could have ridden my bike even though the wheels were a bit out of true and the top tube and down tube of my Lynskey Helix OS were bent. My doctor checked me over and said I was okay - apart from my overweight self. I suppose my other sports of swimming, skiing, and judo helped.

I contacted my LBS, Total Access Bikes, and Don Erwin, Lynskey's sales manager within a week after my crash. After studying the photos of my bent frame and after considering the cost of shipping the bike back to the US, of the repairs and of the return shipping back through Thai customs, Don Erwin made me an amazing crash replacement deal and a promise that I would be riding the bike within a month. This included the bright brush finish, custom etching of the logos and my name on the bike and shipping to Thailand. Lynskey kept their promise.

Surprisingly, the ENVE 1.0 fork, ENVE stem, and ENVE handlebar were A-okay as were the SRAM Red shifters. All of the components were moved over from my old Helix OS and I did not change a thing except for the required 27.2mm ENVE seatpost, a 131mm Selle Italia SLR Flow saddle, and a Jagwire brake/shifter cable set. The delrin PF30 cup and one side of the Enduro ceramic bearing BB set had to be replaced. TAB cleaned/serviced the components, trued both wheels, serviced/relubed the wheel hubs, moved over all of the components for the cost of a normal cleaning service. All within a month of the first email.

I now can honestly say that given a chance to redo things, I would change nothing about my Helix OS.

Lynskey and Don Erwin came through - customer service and complete satisfaction not just guaranteed but delivered.

^You've got some sick skills to breakfall into a van ;)

Bike looks sick. Good to hear you're alright and Lynskey took care of you. Definitely respect a company like that.

The 2013's are now on closeout, so I got a healthy discount.

Mike F 08-10-13 02:51 PM

^ I saw that when I was there. They had the black and red one with Ui2 on closeout for $3400 and red for $3100 :)

Put a set of Tri bottle cages for a non stop self supported solo century tomorrow.

Yeah, you just can't be the prices when they start getting rid of the old stock.
