    Chavanel special paint SL4

    What do you think about the color scheme of the Chavanel Tour de France Birthday SL4?

    http://www.cyclingweekly.co.uk/news/...works-sl4.html

    Personally I do like it a lot!

    You should consider yourself a lucky guy with the Chavanel version. Limited to 50 frames and I just learned none available in 54 cm anymore :-(

    Chavanel special paint SL4

    Seems like I will be a lucky owner after all thanks to the international Conceptstore community and the help of Specialized Europe!

    These are not yet on the radar for US dealers and I've noticed that the frame is no longer listed on the Dutch website. So, is that it...are they all gone?

    Chavanel special paint SL4

    I am afraid so. I know where to find a 56cm (in France) and a 58cm (in the Netherlands) Specialized Europe has none left. Really only 50 made...

    Re: Chavanel special paint SL4

    I have an SL3 with a similar color scheme. I figured that was just one of the Specialized color offerings.
    I got it as a warranty replacement. I do get a lot of crap about it since it looks pink in some light.

    Chavanel special paint SL4

    It's euro 3199 including the saddle. Same price as the Special Editions without the saddle.

    Tempting...which saddle does it come with? Can the buyer pick the saddle size?

    It comes with a 143mm S Works Romin with Orange stitching to match the frame. Color by the way is Inferno Orange as the Chevrolet Camaro. With all other stuff the Special Edition s come with of course.

    What I like is that the Orange is shiny and the black is mat. Very cool.

    If I recall correctly, it was a special edition Romin (143).

    I do think the color is different than the SL3 in Orange and a lot different from the Vino version (compared the frame with it)

    The 58 is what I need but I would do much better on price if it were available in the US. I can't wait to see yours built up!

    Chavanel special paint SL4

    Understand. Unfortunately for you it's a 100% European version. Would only be available in France, but they provided 5 for the Benelux (Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxemburg). I was just lucky in getting my size from France after all. The no 6 for the Benelux :-)

    Frame still needs to get here. Will be build with Campagnolo SR and Zipp parts.
