This bike wont be for everyone, it doesnt have DI eletronic shifting or disk brakes or carbon wheels, so still working on rim brakes and cable gears, BUT its still a beautiful road bike, in excellent condition, shod in the highest specification running gear on a road frame that is as near as anything to a pro level bike (of its day)This is a 2016 Tarmac SL5 frame, which is in top notch condition – it was my best bike only ridden from March to October and only ever in the dry. It is quite simply the bike which sold me on specialised frames, (I now have an S-works and an SL7). Quick to spin up to speed, great on climbs and utterly faultless on the descent – you will want to get this on a long twisty descent and let it rip becuase it will go exactly where you point it. When i bought it back in 2017 this frame was worth £3500Here is Road Cyclings review of the bike which said:https://roadcyclinguk.com/gear/specialized-tarmac-expert-review.html
Ride quality of the frameset is excellent, just as you’d expect. The Tarmac is a performance road bike but it’s not a full-on race beast like the Venge, instead throwing a little comfort into the mix. Handling is sure and sharp, just as you’d expect from a race bike, and although you wouldn’t describe it as comfortable in the same way as, say, the Roubaix, it’s a comfortable enough ride that you don’t need to be a pro to spend multiple hours in its saddle.
Its shod in high end Campagnolo running gear, mainly chorus but the gears are record – but all of it carbon based.The wheels are Fulcrum Racing Zero which retail at around £900 and have the Cult ceramic bearings so spin up incredibly quickly and smoothly. see this review by bike radar which said:The stiff construction transfers every watt of effort into forward motion – get out of the saddle and put the hammer down and you instantly shoot forwards……That said, the ceramic bearing hubs are a delight to roll on. Accepting the lack of aero performance, the ride quality is superb, while freewheeling does feel ‘without drag’.https://road.cc/content/review/fulcrum-racing-zero-2wf-293399The tyres are Continental GP 5000 (but Im including a spare set of colour matched Michelin axial pros which just finish the effect of green/black rather nicely – so yours to choose what finishI can throw in a set of either SPD or Look Keo matched pedals depending on your choice of cleatI can add in a couple of cheap bottle cages as wellPosting is possible but likely to be pricey so would prefer pick up – and i would expect buyers would want to look her over before handing over the cash
