Amazing how switching from white saddle/white bar tape to red saddle/red bar tape seems to change the personality of a bike.

I was really beginning to feel that this bike was looking pretty dated, but I have to say this example is pretty darn sweet looking. I'd be happy with that.

No it was a very good copy. The carbon was T800 insteaf of the T1100 for the original. The frame was light, aero. The only probleme was the lack of rigidity at the back. But it doesn't prevent me to make some podiums, even if the finish was in a climb.
For your guidance, I paid this frame 360€ unused.

But having SWorks and Specialized stickers on a Chinese copy is a bit disingenuous. Ride it for what it is, a open mold Chinese frame.

Undeceives yourself it was not stickers but laser letters. And It doesn't matter to ride on a spé or a copy : it's was just for the name of the bike.

Damn, what team truck did you rob to get your hands on that thing so quickly?!

Sweet as. How are the brakes?

Rides great, brakes feel fine, a tiny bit more 'lag' than the other bike I have been riding (DA brakes), wheels are ridonkulously wide.

Couple of rides, 1 for 2 hours, 1 for 5 hours. Ride quality feels far superior to my old Venge (comfort and handling), brakes took just a few minutes of getting used to (no better/worse than any other brakes, just different). KOMs/PRs were set, whether that's because the bike is fast, conditions were good or I was just pedaling harder I cant really say (although numbers show higher speeds at lower power for most of them). It definitely 'feels' fast, was actually riding with a teammate who is also on the new Venge and both of us commented on having to touch the brakes quite a lot while freewheeling in someone's draft. As deep as the wheels are, felt remarkably stable even on sections where it was pretty gusty. I'm using the riser bars and riding on the tops is not *that* comfortable (was on the Zipp SL70 Aero bars before).

Went back old school after selling my old Tarmac SL3 and Cervelo S5 Team. Saving up while using this ride for the next year or so...Not the newest tech, but it's still pretty fast. Will convert it back to a roadie after a short olympic race next weekend and throwing up Zipp 60's. Race wheels are Enve 65's with Chris King hub. I thought about 808's, but the brake track and wheel might not have enough clearance since this is an older frame. Even these 65's were on the wider side.

Agreed.... Why are you faking telling everyone that you have an S-works? If you love building your own bikes, then design some decals for yourself. Don't pawn off a bike as something it's not...

Is it because you have sponsor obligations?

Updated in preparation for Hawaii. Added an 808 rear and still looking to swap out the bars to something more integrated.

Looks great! Not sure what you are going to get from swapping out the bars except spending more $. Currently looks very clean, and I like the ski bend bars. Better investment, get an 808 up front! Good luck in Hawaii....

Thanks! I opted for the 404 up front mainly because of the crosswinds in Hawaii and it's a minuscule time savings between a 404 and an 808. As for the bars I'm looking to get the extensions tucked up under the cups so I have more rise from my elbow to wrist. Plus they bars on there now are the alloy version of the devox bars, so I would ideally like to find something with nicer cable routing. I was thinking the new vuka aero from zipp or missile pro if I can find out how to route the brake cables with the fixed stem.
