Very happy, finally. Performance and beautiful blue-tint!!

Started road cycling about a year ago with a Giant Defy Adv-2. Over time me and the bike kept getting slower, putting in so much effort for little results. So back to the drawing board, and also going down a size to a 52 (I'm 5'7""), I landed with the Tarmac Sport. Already my speed is up and the bike is fun to ride as it is very nimble, headwinds are not a huge deal either anymore. Cant wait for the next ride!!

Really love the Sagan Superstar color. Made the difference for me when comparing to the Elite! The handing is smooth and responsive. The bike just screams make me go fast!!
