Weatherman is a solid guy; you can buy from him with total confidence.

He does use mtb pedals on the road though..

I do not believe so--as I understand it (confirming with my shop now) the full bikes are not bb30 setup---only the modules. The crankset is BB30 compatible (not sure on the details), but not exclusively a BB30 setup. Am confirming now........my LBS has the same bike on the floor already (different size). Will update you when I know more. Thanks.

OK, thanks. I'll take them if they will work with my 'normal' frame. let me know if a bottom bracket is included, too.

Indeed--my LBS tells me it is a BB30 setup so please note this "important" piece of information.

Thanks for the interest. :)

IMO you are taking a huge step backwards pulling these off and replacing with Red cranks. S-works are lighter, stiffer, and better bearing....could see it if you hadan SRM or something but to each his own I suppose? :beer:

sorry for offering an un asked for opinion :D

Yeah, you are right and my shop is telling me the same thing, just really had "not so good" luck with the Specialized rings on my SL2 and swapped them for Red Rings last go'round. I'm told the SBC rings are now better/improved so likely I'll just stick with the stock setup as I don't have many people banging down my door to help me put this bad plan into action.

Now, how about those Roval wheels--still need a buyer for those. You won't easily convince me that my Edge Composites/DT190s are a step backwards there.....

thanks for the honest opinion, I've got thick skin.....

:D

Cool, I think you will be pretty happy! I wish I could use the S-works crank on my sl3 but I am a watt weenie and buying a new PM is not gonna happen. Many guys on my current team have the Specialized crank and love them. Wonder if you could retro fit a wired SRM?

Quarq supports the specialized crankset now - although SRM users seem to be fanatics.
