Just another SL7 Tarmac

52cm Tarmac SL7 Expert - Ultegra Di2.

Mostly stock, but have since added the Fizik Adaptive saddle, Enve 5.6's, and Aerofly 2 bars. Since the photos were taken I've changed out the stem from 120mm -6deg to 110m -12deg.

It’s a nondescript building in Brooklyn, near the navy yard. I loved the lighting there tho. Next time I swing by I’ll take a peek at what it is. Thanks!

No complaints, she rips and is responsive and fast. Most of my riding has been on track bikes so I don’t have a good basis for comparison

How do you like the 5.6's? I have 3.4s but I'm considering going deeper.

thats kind of funny, I was going to ask if you in NYC lol. For some reason I feel like I took pictures of my bike there but it wasn't in the navy yard, that said somewhere similar lol.

Bike looks great.

They're really nice. It's a great balance between aero and weight. Really suited for NYC riding (mostly flat, rolling hills, a few punchy climbs). I just picked up a set of Zipp 303s for my crit bike so it'll be interesting to see what the diff is.
