Black and White and Red all over

I picked up my new 2009 Tarmac Pro SL this afternoon. It seems like a nice ride so far. I took it on a short 25 miler this afternoon. Still dialing in the fit. Everything is looking good so far. I am pretty happy.

Specs:
2009 Tarmac Pro SL 61cm
SRAM Red Group
Easton EA90SL wheels
Ritchey WCS Cockpit

Sorry for the blurry picture, I just grabbed a couple of quick shots.

Congrats, looks like a nice bike.

Question though, why did the bike shop leave that much steerer tube sticking up past the stem?

I think the guy at the shop stated that the MSRP for the frame is $1900?? Something like that. As far as the steerer tube, that will be cut when I determine exactly where I want the stem. I am looking forward to a longer ride tomorrow.

Questions...

Hey bpalk,

Sweet looking ride! How do you like it so far? What were you riding before. How tall are you? What's your inseam? I "think" this might be my next bike (frame), but I can't seem to find a 61 cm tarmac to check out for sizing.

Also Blade Runner - if you read this... How did you BG fit go? What did they do, how much $, would you do it again, etc.

Thanks

Hello tjco,

I am enjoying the bike so far. I had a Cannondale CAAD 8 63cm before this and the ride on the new bike is more stable and just smoother that the C'Dale. My height is 6'5" and my inseam is between 36.5" and 37". Obviously I would recommend that you pick one up. I don't think you would be disappointed.
