My new ride - loving it so far!

Sitting at just under 8kg as pictured (minus bottles).

Next step is tubeless, but think I'll run these tires into the ground before I do that.

Those brake calipers look cool. What brand are they? Do they work/adjust better than the OEM SRAM?

The calipers are Hope RX4+.

Thanks guys!

Yeah the callipers are Hope RX4+. Power is fantastic, better in my eyes than the Etap calipers but fiddly to setup and get appropriate clearance. But they look great which is why I got them!

Two shots of my Tarmac SL6 in the Gloss Chameleon colorway with Cyan Blue logos. It's done more than 16k miles in the last 2-3 years, and will likely stay as the primary bike despite an ongoing Aethos project bike build.

SRAM Red AXS /w Quarq; ENVE aero stem, handlebars, and 3.4 AR wheels; Carbon-Ti rotors, but I'm swapping them back to CenterLine XRs for noise reasons. Weight is around 7.2kg.

Getting my S-works Tarmac SL5 all ready for the upcoming season.... new chainrings, cassette, chains, cables and brake pads... also have a new set of Corsas to chuck on too.

Forgive this question if it's dumb but I have this same frame and I'd like to add some color to it, particularly to the decals, can I just apply the new decals I get made/purchase over the existing black ones that seem to be under a coating of some sort? Thanks for the help.

Yes, they just go on over top.

Just built up this 2021 SL6 (Sagan edition) as my second bike. Wasn't going for a lightweight build but happy with the weight (with cages and pedals). Still need to replace the saddle with a Berk Lumpina (as this the Selle Italia SLR Boost is not a good shape for me). I also want to paint it over the winter which I know will add some weight but TBD.

Not a great pic but had the bike (post above) repainted and P2M powermeter installed. No other plans for it other than wheels at some point but I'm not in a rush to do more with it.
