To the people with the beautiful GLOSS CARBON / VIAVI MAGANTA GOLD / CHAOS RED PEARL / WHITE color. Are you rocking skin wall or not? Pictures of both please <3
Yepp.
Not the best pictures. But here it goes.
I already gave 1200 kms on this bike and didn't have the time for a good pic session
such a beauty!

Is this the GLOSS CARBON / VIAVI MAGANTA GOLD / CHAOS RED PEARL / WHITE color color just in a better light?

Edit: noticed the no carbon layers in the paint, so I guess not.

Which of the 3d printed Spez saddles would you get for a sworks SL8? Currently have the saddle that came with my SL8.

Haha, well said. Both the romin and the power shape fits me actually. Which one tends to be the most used?

Frame arrived at my local deal! Can pick it up on the 17th. So excited to build it up!
What kind of DI2 Cable length do you recomment for a 54 frame? I'd assume 500 and 850 should work fine?
And lastly: What kind of (light-ish?) bar tape would you recommend?

Looks more like a custom build of the Gloss Solidity/Red to Black Pearl/Metallic White Silver they sell as a SRAM Red build in Germany

Agree! Really excited to see the maganata gold in real life though. Upgrading from a pro SL8. Stupid? Yes. Excited? Yes!

Anyone know anywhere in the UK that sells decent S-Works decals in Chrome effect? I know speedydecal is probably the best but any alternatives out there?
Also looking for SL8 Pro decals preferably in the UK.

Looks like it's a shop. If it's an authorized speci dealer, don't know. You should contact the shop. English shouldn't be a prob.
