This is a brand new 2012 Tarmac SL3 Expert Mid-Compact with less than 70 miles on it. It does not get any newer outside the show room floor. Unfortunately for me the sizing (at size 58) is off and I need a size 56 instead.

The bike is fantastic; stiff and responsive and surprisingly comfortable. Also, you'll have to get use to people checking out the bike as you ride past them. Not kidding. Had at least 4 people do double takes on a 15 mile ride! This is without a doubt one of the best performing and looking bikes available.

Bike is completely stock with standard specs; nothing has been switched out. Full details on the bike build and geometry can be found on the Specialized site: http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bc/SBCProduct.jsp?spid=61557&scid=1101&scname=Road

I paid $3,900, looking for $3,449.

Too bad you can't trade it back to the shop for a proper size. That's a nice bike
