    Gorgeous as always, another special specialized for the collection! How are those Sram wheels working out? See you went with the Tour edition Red chainset you mentioned.
  • Wheels are nice they spin nice but were a little sticky for the first 100 miles, I guess just the grease they were made/packed with loosening up as it got hot. Yeah Im pleased I always loved the HTC team colour scheme but I couldnt get one when they were out so I was delighted to find one BNIB. SRAM red Ive had before and I thought it was OK, still prefer DA or Ultegra but its the lightest group out there and I wanted to build a light one as the Venge is a bit lumpy for what it is.

    You say the Venge - isn't that the Tarmac?
  • Yep thats a Tarmac but I have a Venge too (for now!)

    I almost bought a Roubaix frame last year in that colour way but the Specialized store wouldn't give me a discount so I didn't bother.

    My favourite Specialized colour way though.
  • Still havent rode this yet....Shocking!

  • G R E A T colour matching on the frame, components and wheels. That crank is the piece de resistance.

    The cool thing about the colours is you can always say in 4-5 years when HTC has faded into memory that it refers to the jerseys at the TdF.

    And to cap it all of, cross-your-heart cables! What's not to love about that?
