Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I saw one built up in a LBS: Sram Red + Specialized crank, brakeset, seatpost, stem, handlebar + Zipp 202 tubular. 12 lbs without pedal. That's pretty light.
Price is ~$9K if I remember right.

Hell even the brakes on that sworks are unreal. The pro will be plenty enough bike for me. As for as the crank and the dog, I think she's got her own crank.

Did they weight it in front of you? Cause my buddy has the exact bike with Reynolds carbon clinchers. Bikes is 14.6lbs. I don't really know how 12lbs is reachable with that bike.

I wish someone would tap me with their car and crack my frame so they'd buy me this.

Not saying you're wrong (it does sound too light), but what kind of Reynolds are they? They probably have a pound on the 202s that weigh about 1000g. Did your buddy's have pedals?

Finally finished with the bike. Weighs about 16 and a quarter, but I care more about the ride than the weight. I'll apologize ahead for the crap phone pic, but I can't find my camera.

Yes, pedals included. Why would you weigh a bike without pedals?

Regardless, if that bike is 12lbs, that's pretty crazy.

I got one of those about a week ago as well. The frame was 1020 grams for a size 56. That's pretty respectable... about 70 grams heavier than an S-works SL3 with similar paint and the same weight as my wife's S-works SL2 (size 49) that has a lot of paint on it.

Mine built up under 16lbs with my craptastic Aksium training wheelset installed.

Crappy phone pics:




It's getting a 3T seat post to match the stem a bit better.

Oh yea... I had to get some matching shoes too (Gotta love PBK sales!):

Yes, the "pro" frame comes with a seatpost and headset. The s-works frame I believe does not come with a seatpost.

Just an FYI though, by todays standard the Tarmac is not light.
Careful. There are other versions of the Tarmac. Also, what would you say is "light" by today's standards?

Not that I really care exactly what a bike weighs, but I have a 2011 Tarmac SWORKS SL3, size 58 with pedals: 13.1 lbs. I watched them weigh it twice after the build.

Zipp 202's would probably take it to under 13 I would guess because the Eastons I have on there are supposed to be around 1230 grams I think.

Those reynolds will almost certainly be heavier than good tubies since they are clinchers. Tires and tubes are likely heavier than sew ups too. There could easily be a 1/2 pound of difference right there. Component selection could make up the rest pretty quickly.

+1

My sworks frame did not come with the seatpost. I think they started doing this for the 2011 swords frames, as the 2010 frames and "modules" came with a seatpost I beleive.

how long that seatpost is?, because I'm thinking to buy 56cm frame which has 530mm from center bb to top of seattube, my usual saddle height is about at 82cm, so I'm worry that this seatpost could be too short.
