Love the bike, not so much the assembly service

This is a great bike and I love the Tarmac SL7 design. But there’s an assembly issue with the breaks. I paid for specialized delivery which includes assembly and delivery. After a couple of rides I noticed the break pads are rubbing against the break disc rotors. It’s seems like the break calipers weren’t assembled correctly and nobody at the shop aligned them. That’s for front and rear breaks. And I have I noticed this on other people’s brand new SL7s too. This is not acceptable for this kind of bike. Make sure to check the breaks at the time of delivery.

Great bike overall

The bike feels and ride spectacular.Best frame set that I’ve ridden, stiff and responsive. Rival group set is known for its good value for money, truly wireless and reliable even if a bit heavy. Wheels are a let down on the spec side considering the price tag. Upgraded to zipp 303 and tubeless tyres.

Great Bike

Shopped around for a while looking for an upgrade. Could not be happier with this bike. Shipping to local dealer was easy and they went above and beyond putting it together. It rides great. Love the look of it too.

Unbelievable feel

Back to riding after thirteen years and three knee surgeries and I couldn’t be happier! Reviewed and looked around all winter and it came down to the SL7 in the exact color scheme I was looking for. Extremely happy with my first ride it was like the bike wanted to take off without me; a lot has changed since I rode last, wheels feel light and fast and as I said I’m coming back from a long break and I am more than happy with where I landed!

Would Recommend?
Yes!

beware of fork/frame color match on white model

Great bike. Far to expensive to have alloy wheels which need to be upgraded but it is a great frame and rival works well-although front derailleur stopped working after 4 months… After one year fork has become a sort of yellowy cream and frame remains original color. I’ve noticed this on at least two others so its not just mine. Pity for an expensive bike. Spoils the sleek look a lot

I love the new frame

I love the new frame nimbleness and stiffness, 28mm tire capability and disc brakes, non of which my old bike had. with the relatively low cost comp configuration I also upgraded the wheels which is pretty common. I got a great deals on a new alpinist cl wheelset and s-works shallow drop bars and total weight is 17 lbs. The bike of fun and fast.

I both the bicycle on

I both the bicycle on the site and shipped to the bicycle shop. The process to order the bicycle was relatively easy. If you never built a bike or don't have the time..., well, that is the best way to do it plus you warrantee to receive a dialed-in bicycle.. The bicycle is sexy, the bicycle is fast, and responsive when you apply power to the pedals. I upgraded from a 2017 allez spring 49cm on a shimano 105 to the SL7 comp. The electronic shifting is crisp and easy to adapt to. If you wonder about the weight, the total weight with the assioma duo power meter and “S- works bottle cages was 8.49 Kg. Currently waiting on my Roval C38 wheels on tubeless. She will look even better.
