S-Works McLaren Tarmac. The best road bike you can buy?

By Faiming_low on 12 Jul 2014

Attached Image I must admit I am not really interested in bikes but the sheer beauty of this $30,000 road bike sure caught my attention. The S-Works McLaren Tarmac, a joint effort by McLaren and Specialized Bicycle Components, was probably born for those who seek the best.
 
Attached Image Utilising McLaren's knowledge and expertise in carbon fibre, the S-Works McLaren Tarmac's frame plus fork weight is reduced by 9 to 11 percent with the help of an exclusively developed proprietary carbon layup process as compared to the standard S-Works Tarmac.
 
Attached Image The CLX40R tubular wheels (which is 90g lighter than the standard set of CLX40 wheels), crankset, and handlebars also receive the new carbon layup process and manage to shave off more weight too. EE Cycleworks brakes further reduce weight. 

Attached Image McLaren's Special Operations team also lent a hand in developing a custom paint scheme for this bike and each of the 250 units that will be made will come with matching S-Works shoes and helmet. Of course, when you pay such an exuberant price for the bike, it is only right they build the bike according to your body size via its Body Geometry Fit consultation. 

Attached Image So will you spend 30 grand on a bike? Not for me, but what do I know?
