it's beautiful but a bike like that deserves better bottle cages.

 

How does it compare to the SL3? I'm still on the 2 :<

Will only be able to compare the two tomorrow during the league race.

Thanx Dale! The SL3 frame is up for grabs at a good price (R12.5K). I considered the Venge, but the Tarmac is more my style. I liked the all-round-abilities more.

That is just farrrrrrrrr too gorgeous. My Tarmac has a very long career ahead of it before it can aspire to that level. Enjoy, as I'm sure you will. Congrats.

Price Andre?

Frame retails for R25K, but negotiating will land you a better price! Whats actually funny about the price is that everywhere else in the world, the price is between R28K and R31K, but the cheapest in SA!

And, comparison to SL 3 in the heat of racing...

:)

I really enjoyed this bike today on its maiden mission, feels stiffer than the SL3, and although the geometry is the same, except for the top tube set-up, the bike was much more comfortable. A pro would obviously be able to tell detail differences, but generally, the bike just felt more stable, giving a more refined ride. It did not score me a podium position, but if I had the legs and the lungs like the other more seasoned vets, I would'nt have had any excuse not to stand on the wooden boxes marked 1, 2 or 3!

As if the SL 3 could be more stiffer... Amazing.

 

That head tube thang makes a big difference.
