Out of tragedy comes great triumph someone once said, and this bike has a tale of woe involving a previous Tarmac and a ride round London surrounding it.  Story aside this is the latest S Works custom build to come out of our Ings store highlighting just how pretty a disc bike can look.


Featuring Shimano Dura Ace R9000 throughout this Tarmac disc is built for speed, agility and responsiveness as soon as the pedal is put down.


Teamed with a set of Hunt Carbon Wheels and Hutchinson tyres we are reliably informed that it bombs along effortlessly.   The tyres were so easy to setup tubeless on the rims that new owner Lee can’t understand why you’d use anything else now.


Borrowing technology effectively from the MTB world the new front and rear mechs are easier than ever to set up even when you are using good old cables instead of Di2 cables.


Finished off with Specialized finishing kit to keep the weight down the whole build looks great and rides wonderfully.

So thank you to Lee for the frame and wheel purchase and thanks for the pictures of your latest stealth machine!
