The Tarmac Expert with Shimano Dura-Ace finds the optimal blend of value and performance and ups the ante.
Like the S-Works Tarmac iterations, it features a Rider-First Engineered™ design that applies specificity to every tube size and carbon layup for every frame size. This creates the optimal balance of rigidity, weight, and responsiveness, so every frame, regardless of its size, performs just as intended. You'll also find an identical, Grand-Tour-winning geometry to past Tarmacs, plus a high-end FACT 10r carbon fiber construction.
- The FACT 10r carbon frame combines the lightweight performance and compliance of our top-end carbon production methods with our Rider-First Engineered™ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary climbing responsiveness and descending prowess you'd expect from a Tarmac.
- S-Works full FACT carbon fork with a tapered construction provides incredible front end stiffness and steering response for instantaneous accelerations and high-speed descents.
This Tarmac is in perfect condition easily a 9.5 out of 10. Only ridden about 65 miles total, this Tarmac is mechanically perfect and looks and rides like new. There are no scratches on the frame and the paint on this bike is amazing in person and the pictures do not do it justice. You can see in some of the pictures how the paint sparkles like the night sky but believe me it is much more impressive in person and is probably one of the nicest paint jobs Specialized has done in recent years. This is a total custom build and no expense was spared right down to the ceramic hub bearings and ceramic bearing jockey wheels. Total bike weight is only 15.28 lbs!
Frame has no dents, cracks, or any other carbon damage.
Wheels are straight with no hops and no dents in the rims.
The entire bike was just given a full tune up by a professional bike mechanic and everything has been inspected and adjusted. Shifting is precise, the hydraulic brakes are bled and adjusted, and it is clean, tuned, and 100% ready to ride.
Brake Pads: Excellent
Saddle: Excellent, no tears
