After our recent detour into the world of Specialized
Gloss Red we're back in the world of stealth black...
This is the ever-popular S-Works Tarmac Disc in the "standard"
Specialized build that is of course anything but ordinary.
S-Works Power cranks as standard, plus the fast mid-section
Roval CLX50 carbon wheelset, running on CeramicSpeed bearings (with
DT Swiss 240 hub internals). CeramicSpeed also provide the bottom
bracket bearings - a pretty impressive statement of intent, this is
not a bike for going slow.
We're also fans of the wonderfully supple 320TPI Turbo Cotton
tyres, they're brilliantly fast rolling and have a remarkably plush
feel (aided by a very modern 26mm width). Those tan walls really
bring the bike to life, along with the super-crisp holo decals on
