Sweet

Beautiful bike and build. I have to admit disc bikes are growing on me now. This one is top notch.

Spec is killing it.

I get to rent new bikes reasonably often, and i am ALWAYS impressed when i get on a spec road bike. Their geometry just works for me, and i just love the way they ride. It's sometimes fashionable to hate the big brands, but putting aside all of the corporate BS that goes on, i think a very talented group of people work at Spec and they have the engineering, R&D and budget to design and build the very best bikes on the planet.

yours looks great.

there's a local bike shop here in NJ that does a lot of s-works builds, and they posted this one on insta today, i like this paint too!

add me to the list of people that is glad we have moved on from the black black black bike look!

good for you if you live somewhere flat. OP has disc brakes so not sure what the relevance of your rim brake set up is here.

Agreed. People hate on all sorts of stuff - but every Specialized I've owned (actually owned more SWorks bike than any other brand) have been solid. Funny thing - I don't really notice the politics of the brand when I'm on the ride! :shrug:

And yeah, that's probably my current favorite paint job. Really loving my Mint though - just wish I could actually take pictures that better represent the color!!

In other news, the new Schwalbe Pro One TLE tire is fantastic

Inquiring minds as I'm not seeing any logos -- what tubs?

And awesome looking ride indeed! Well done.

Did I say "no climbs" somewhere? I said significantly less climbing than where I used to live (Willamette valley) and lots of dirt.

I just did a 70 mile loop and only 1700' of elevation gain. Granted, my Garmin tends to read a few hundred feet short of everyone I ever ride with - but that's not a lot of climbing. I'd do more than that within 8 miles of my door - almost every direction - from my last house.

Not complaining...

I say that you are lucky to have both options. Often areas with lots of climbs have few flat paces to ride.
I am in Bend right now- Seems like Bend, Redmond, Sisters all have multiple options for vertical and flats.

Thanks! Sounds like a great choice.

Love the choice of components overall -- both the look and the capabilities.
