2011 Specialized Tarmac Comp Double

Specialized's Tarmac Comp Double is the tool of choice for weekend-warrior hammerheads and racers alike. Its Specialized FACT-carbon frame and fork boast an 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. It has a Shimano 105 20-speed drivetrain with a 53/39 crankset perfect for speed freaks and racers, while the Fulcrum Racing wheels slice through the wind. Plus, you'll love the Specialized aluminum and carbon components sprinkled throughout this fine road machine.

    Comments:

    This was my first purchase for a serious road bike to ride with others that have been riding for quite some time at cat 3 and below level. They guys at BC took really good care to fit me which makes a HUGE diff in enjoying your ride. Regular shifting to harder gears is very smooth. On hill climbs and when I need it most, it is quite difficult to always downshift and I end up in a half gear quite often. I am chalking this up to riding this for 4 months straight, everyday for at least an hour with no adjustments. I have had ZERO issues with this ride! No derailments, no chain drops, no flat tires, no loose spokes....NADA. Spectacular performance for my purchase. Would recommend this to anyone. Would suggest keeping the gear adjustments checked as the chain begins to wear and think about lighter wheels if you have the money to spend
