2023 Specialized Tarmac SL7

 

2023 Specialized Tarmac SL7

with

SRAM Red eTap AXS

The Specialized Tarmac is for those who quite simply want one of the best road bikes available. An aero road bike built for speed yet comfortable enough to spend all day in the saddle, all in an extremely light package.    

We use the bike, in this instance more like a fine wine being paired with a insatiable cheese. Something like a semi soft Gruyère or Comté and a nice Pinot Noir. The Tarmac and (bias opinion) best cycling saddle bag are a winning combination.

We had the fortune of borrowing the new 2023 Tarmac to use in a photo shoot for our bike saddle bags. The good folks at Cadence Cyclery in Encinitas let us borrow it for a few hours (Thank you!).

2024 Belgian Waffle Ride California 

As the dust settles from a beautiful day touring some of North County San Diego finest roads and gravel, hopefully all that's left are fond memories. In addition to the great weather there was also outstanding performance in both the Woman and Men's races with Sofia Gomez Villafañe and Matt Beers having domante rides.
