2012 Specialized Tarmac Compact

Specialized's Tarmac Compact boasts a Tour de France-winning FACT-carbon frame and fork. It will only take one ride for you to appreciate the supreme combination of low weight and ripping power transfer that's evident whenever the road tilts skyward or your friends pick up the pace. Component-wise, the Tarmac is adorned with a compact Shimano 20-speed drivetrain for conquering any ride, and wind-cheating DT Swiss wheels for oodles of speed over any terrain. Plus, the Tarmac comes with grippy dual-pivot brakes for maximum control and a fine helping of Specialized's quality aluminum components.

Features and Information

  • View the geometry chart.
  • Specialized's FACT (Functional Advanced Composite Technology) carbon frames and components are made from the finest materials and utilize a unique manufacturing process that creates amazing durability, awesome efficiency and super-low weight.
  • This frame’s head tube is 1 1/2 inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8 inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems and not adding much weight.

        Comments:

        I have been riding this bike for three years now. Is it comfortable? Yes. I often ride 70 miles or so at a stretch. Is it fast? It will go as fast as I can pedal it. That's all I can get out of it. Is it responsive? Quite. I have no complaints, and neither do the four other riders I ride with that are on Tarmacs.
