    Tell me about your Tarmac

    Coming off a carbon Colnago and an aluminum Eddy Merckx (all Campy) last 10 years. The new TARMAC SL7 has my interest in the disk version as soon as they announce it's release. I'm also looking at the carbon Wilier Cento 10 PRO.

    How do you all like the SL6 and what -exactly- do you like about it that may convince me to run from the Italian and Belgium fetish? The press seems to love it, but they also dig the Wilier also. I'm torn and haven't ridden either. I hope to find a Tarmac to ride before I buy.

    Thanks. Post some SL6 P0rn pics if so inclined!

    I went from a SL5 (no slouch of a bike) to an SL6 and I love it. As a clyde I find it to be a very good descender, predictable with not a whole lot of front end twitchiness. I mean it's very responsive to quick movements without being sketchy. It's also pretty strong on sprints.

    I've never had a problem with it going up hills, but I'm not exactly setting the world on fire in that department. Out of the saddle I find it to almost disappear beneath me though (in a good way).

    I'm running mine on tubeless 28s with no problems. Between that and the dropped seat stays, I find it to be a good all day bike. I like it so much I have this one as well as a Pro in blue.



    Looking forward to seeing what they do for the SL7. Will the line between Tarmac and Venge continue to blur? I hope not. Anyone have any solid rumors?

    Someone at my LBS said they got a peak of the new Tarmac and it's jaw-dropping. IDK??
