The paint jobs on the Roubaix's suck compared to the Tarmac, every single one of 'em. Terrible. That Tarmac Pro frame in gloss white/neon red/black. That is sick.
Yeah, I'm branching out! After amassing $15k of scuba gear over the course of a few years, I figured I needed to find another hobby into which to sink my disposable income!roadbike_moron said:I thought I recognized that avatar. I was like wait, I am on RBR right, not Scubaboard.

Their seems to be no more 9r carbon fiber and some models get the TRP brakes instead of the Shimano or Sram. The price difference between the Tarmac Pro frameset a S-Works frame is $900 but the complete bikes are around $ 2,500 apart. I'll go back and study some more now!
Outside of the Robuaix Di2 frame I have to agree - butt ugly. The Tarmac frame IMHO have had the better looking paint jobs, but that's personal preference.
Sidenote - I find it interesting that they aren't showing the bike prices on the site anymore.
You're definitely in the right place. Some bikes can cost as much as a set of doubles, can light, regs, and that over priced signature tls-350.RJP Diver said:Yeah, I'm branching out!

I take it you're a diver/SB'er as well?
