Put the hammer down on Specialized's Tarmac Comp and go wherever the road takes you, fast! Its Specialized FACT carbon frame and fork boast the awesome combo of feathery weight and maximum stiffness for ripping power transfer that you'll appreciate whenever the road tilts skyward or your friends pick up the pace. Its Shimano Ultegra 22-speed drivetrain with Praxis Works crankset always gives you the perfect gear for the road's ups and downs, while the smooth-rolling Fulcrum S4 wheels deliver road-blistering speed. Plus, you'll love the Specialized aluminum and carbon components sprinkled throughout this incredible road machine.

This frame utilizes Specialized’s advanced FACT IS (Integrated Structure) construction method. By separating the frame into four main parts — the front triangle, seat tube/bottom bracket, chainstays and seatstays — Specialized is able to optimize each carbon piece for its specific purpose and create a structure that’s incredibly light, impeccably stiff and impressively strong.

This frame’s head tube and fork are 1 3/8 inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8 inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems without adding weight.

    After riding this in several crits and some long rides, I'm definitely happy with my purchase. At under $2000 it's a great deal. If you're gonna be doing serious racing, which 99% won't, you might want to upgrade the wheels. 105 works flawlessly and breaks allow me to stop pretty quickly from 40+ mph.

    I was the fist bike that I tried in the store and it was the only one that was now to stiff or to weak. It had all the right stuff that I was looking for. Carbon frame, fork, and seat post. A full set of Shimano 105. The bike handles great on hills witch I do a lot of. I also added Look Keo Carbon pedals. A great addition to the whole set up. If you have the money; I highly recommend this bike and pedal set up.
