Specialized Tarmac Pro

Posted

Pros: Super light and stiff. Great handling.

Cons: Front derailleur adjustment

This is my favorite road bike; previous favorite was a Trek 5.9 SL Madone.  The Tarmac Pro SL performs like a sport car; quick acceleration and great cornering--I feel in control of this bike at all times.  The only issue I've had is with the Specialized S Works chain rings and the DA 7900 front derailleur; it is often very difficult to shift into the large chain ring.
