    Tarmac Expert

    I知 still riding a 2003 Trek 5500 and will be getting a 2018 Tarmac Expert SL5 with DA shortly. I assume I値l feel a big difference in the ride. Just wondering if there痴 been any issues with these bikes that I should be aware of. I知 looking forward to getting it!

    Have you taken the SL6 for a spin? If I had to pick between the experts I would lean towards the SL6 despite it dropping to an ultegra setup. Components can always be upgraded, the frame is harder to upgrade and the SL6 is a great frame maintaining or improving just about every aspect of the SL5 frame. The weight loss on the SL6 will probably be a wash because of the heavier ultegra components but it will be more aerodynamic and a more comfortable ride while maintaining all the good handling characteristics.
