I purchased my dream bike, a Tarmac SL6 Disc Pro, from The Pro’s Closet a little less than six months ago. The bike in general has been everything I wanted and more, but from the start the front brake never felt quite right.
Bad. - Rain made the bike/run unpleasant.

I tested a tarmac SL6 today. It would be a nice upgrade for me. It's more aggressive than my current entry level endurance bike.

IS THE "ENTRY LEVEL" BIKE DEAD? 2021 SPECIALIZED TARMAC SL6 ($2500) TOO MUCH MONEY FOR TIAGRA?
Guys, let me know what you guys think about it. This is the Specialized Tarmac so Six retail is twenty five hundred dollars. This is the cheapest model they get for a carbon fiber road bike for a tarmac

Canyon v. Specialized
I'm a Specialized fanboy through and through, but even so I have to say the entry-level Tarmac SL6 with the round seatpost is nothing to write home about. The frame is pretty heavy for a carbon race-oriented frame, and the componentry on it is pretty awful for the price.
What to look for in a new wheel. (SL7 Tarmac Expert)
Btw I have Tarmac SL6 (S-Works disc) and the Roval Rapide CLX 50s are great (tubeless with the GP5000TL tire), and they are reasonable in wind. Might be able to get those much cheaper than new ENVEs.

Well, they were happy to order one for me, should only take about I dunno, 8-9 months? Well I couldn’t wait that long so I headed over to the other store in town and was able to buy a Specialized Tarmac SL6 Comp off the shelf. Well, recently my local Trek store got a surprise shipment of 2021 Emonda’s in, with my size available. This is the bike I originally wanted!
