    Specialized Tarmac Pro 2013 vs 2014


    I am currently with the opportunity to acquire one of these bikes, the Tarmac Pro Race 2014 or 2013 with SRAM Red

    My doubt is which one is more balanced, the 2013 has the edge in transmission using a mix of SRAM Red and Force, the 2014 has the edge for what seems to me the level of wheels.

    My profile who likes to roll but above all to climb, this'm leaning more towards the 2014 now.

    For you what is the most balanced and that justifies the investment, the level of values ​​are very approximate, leading to 2013 a slight advantage for less.

    Sorry for the english but I'm from Portugal

    No contest, IMO. Get the '14. It's got SRAM 22 and Roval CLX 40 wheels. And, the '13 appears to have the old 10sp Red, not the newer 10sp Red with YAW FD, Aerolink brakes, new shifters, RD. No real advantage to the old 10sp Red Black except for slightly lighter component weight.

    For me, I'd try to get them to swap out the cranks for 34/50...but I'm old and feeble.
