2013 Specialized Tarmac Elite Mid-Compact

Specialized's Tarmac has Tour de France and Giro d' Italia wins to its credit. One ride on its FACT-carbon frame and fork and you'll know why! The Tarmac boasts 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's equipped with a 10-speed Shimano 105 component group with a mid-compact 52/36 crankset and quick DT Swiss wheels. Plus, you'll love the Specialized carbon and aluminum components sprinkled throughout this fine road machine, while the super comfy Body Geometry saddle feels great from mile 1-100.

I am using this bike for very long distance rides. It is more aggressive than it is comfortable, but the guys at the shop have helped tremendously with that. When I push the pedal, there is IMMEDIATE power transfer. Getting this thing moving takes very little effort. It's light and fast. The shimano 105 group (sans crankset) is more than adequate for recreational riding. The saddle that comes with this bike is like plywood. That really is my only complaint. For the price, I figure Specialized could have provided something just a little nicer. I love my Tarmac!
