    Just built up a new old stock 2011 Secteur Comp frame with bits from the shed.

    Some 28mm Roubaix Pro tyres on the old Aksium's and it rolls quite nicely.
    An oval Garabuk 42t chain ring and 9 speed 11-34 cassette will do me for the time being.
    It's running some cheap 3T Aeronova clones which are great for general riding and the invisible tri bars are more comfortable than some proper tri bars, but are too flexy for standing climbing in the drops.

    Wheel upgrade to my Tarmac. Went from Farsports 50mm clinchers to a set of Campy Bora One 50mm clinchers. After I got them mounted up, I think I should've went for the bright decals. Oh well, at least they ride great! (Yes I know, eternal damnation for not having the chain on the big ring...)

    Threw 32s on the Diverge and tooled around today. Unfortunately, they're no match for the sand. Time for a fat bike?

    Here's a look at my new Tarmac Expert with stock DTSwiss Rims and Hubs.
    Running Vittoria 28's and the ride is fun, but looking to add an alternate upgrade wheelset. I don't race and top priority is handling and style over pure speed. I think the current spec from Specialized is very competitive vs other manufactures' spec on similarly priced models.

    Anyone ride any of these?

    -Fulcrum Zero's (had a set of 5's long time back and loved the way the rolled)
    -DT Swiss Oxic
    -Dura-ace C35 alum rim
    -HED Ardennes (seems similar to current)
    -Reynolds Assault (possible custom build with nicer hubs)

    I'm struggling btw custom or manufactured sets; if I go custom I'd really want a pair with either dura-ace or CK hubs.

    Also, I'm large: 6.1" 220 - 230 lbs
