As an incentive, we're giving away a grand prize to one lucky reader - a Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL4 OSBB frameset, courtesy of the Omega Pharma-Quickstep team. The frameset will be provided in the contest winner's size and as an added bonus it will be autographed by the Omega Pharma-Quickstep team.
Valued at USD3,500, the SL4 FACT IS 11r carbon frame features Specialized's highest stiffness-to-weight ratio ever, with tapered head tube, carbon OSBB, and internal cable routing. Included is a full monocoque FACT carbon fork with a tapered carbon steerer, Ceramic Speed bottom bracket with ceramic bearings, 1-1/8" to 1-3/8" headset with sealed, stainless steel bearings and an S-Works FACT carbon seatpost.
Complete information about the frameset is available on the Specialized website.
