Spread The Word

The Specialized Tarmac SL4 Pro Racing Road Bike 2014 has been designed with one of the lightest, stiffest frames on the market. This SL4 FACT 10r carbon frame has been race-optimised and uniquely shaped with a tapered headtube and OSBB for pure, unbridled speed and power. The frame has been matched with the 1 3/8" tapered, full-monocoque FACT carbon fork for ultimate steering precision. In a nutshell, this bike will make you go faster, and you'll feel it as soon as you push on the pedals.

The Roval Fusee SLX 23 on this racing road bike is one of the lightest alloy wheelsets out there and it features DT Swiss internals and an asymetrical rear rim for an outstanding combination of performance and strength. The wheels have been paired with Specialized Turbo Pro 700x23c tyres for an incredible package which offers low rolling resistance and superior traction at an exceptionally low weight. The tyres have BlackBelt protection to reduce the risk of a puncture so you will be able to ride flat-free for longer.

The Tarmac SL4 Pro also has a Specialized Pro FACT carbon chainset for maximum efficiency and power transfer. The Shimano Dura-Ace 11 speed mechanical drivetrain has been implemented to provide you with precision shifting at an incredibly light weight, creating one of the finest parts kits available,

Download the Specialized Road Bike Sizing Guide PDF

The right size bike for your body size is essential to ensure the optimum experience, comfort and enjoyment as you ride. With sizing varying between the type of bike, the brand and even the model, getting the perfect fit can seem daunting. That’s why we’ve compiled a handy guide to help you get the correct size.

Measure Your Height

Our handy size charts match your height to the appropriate frame size so you need to be sure you’ve measured your height accurately.

  1. Take off your shoes and stand with your back against a wall.
  2. Make sure legs are together and your shoulders are back.
  3. Place a pencil on top of your head and mark the wall (the best and easiest way to do this properly is with a friend to help you).
  4. Measure from the floor to the pencil mark you have just made with a tape measure.

Range of Reach

For most people to get the right frame size, measuring your height will suffice. However, you may find that your height is on the borderline of the range we suggest for a particular frame. If this occurs you need to measure the range of your reach or “Ape Index”. This will ensure you get a comfortable distance between the handlebars and your saddle.

  1. Stand up straight with your back against a wall.
  2. Life your arms out horizontally either side of you.
  3. Measure the distance from fingertip of one hand to fingertip of the other. This will give you your arm span.
  4. Subtract your height from this figure to get your Ape Index.
  5. If the result is positive (your arm span is greater than your height) you should go for the larger size of bike.
  6. If the result is negative (your arm span is less than your height you need the smaller size.

Stand Over Height

You should also consider your inside leg measurement when choosing your bike to ensure adequate stand over height. Stand over height is the clearance between the top tube and the bottom of your crotch. For mountain bikes we recommend a distance of 2-4 inches and for road or hybrid bikes 1-2 inches of clearance is required. This will ensure comfort when you’re stopped and standing astride the bike.

Our bike sizing charts take stand over height into consideration but if you have a particularly long or short inside leg measurement in relation to your height you will need to bear this in mind when selecting your frame size.

Riding Style

The way you ride and the type of bike you are into will also impact the frame size you should choose. For example, a trail devotee looking for an aggressive ride may prefer a smaller, more manoeuvrable bike size. It all comes down to personal preference and how the bike feels to you.

Our sizing charts aim to be as specific as possible so you can look up the particular type, make and model of bike you’re looking for. Remember, the sizes given in our guides are suggestions and should be used for general advice only. For the best possible fit, we recommend popping in to your local Leisure Lakes Bikes store, or call 0800 083 0888 for expert advice tailored to you.
