    Tarmac S-works or Tarmac Pro ?

    Hi all
    I am very interested by the new Tarmac carbon frame.
    But is anyone knows the differences between the S-works and the Tarmac Pro?
    Is the price difference justifed?
    What is the difference on the road between the two frame?
    Thanks a lot

    S-works comes fully loaded with higher end components. Two frame choices...All carbon or the splined. I like the looks of the alll carbon TDF colors.

    I posted this response under the Specialized forum a while back.

    "The Frameset for the Comp and the Pro Tarmac is not the same frameset as the Sworks Tarmac Frameset. The Carbon layup is different. The frame for the Comp and Pro is slightly heavier. My friends at lbs went to specialized this year to view and ride all the 2005 stuff and was informed that the frames are different in construction but are the same geometry.

    My Buddy said it was only a small difference in stiffness when hammering. But general road feel could not tell a difference.
