Specialized Deceuninck – Quick-Step LTD Tarmac Disc carbon road frame set

Specialized officially added disc brakes to the Tarmac in 2018, a frame that has since seen plenty of action on the professional race circuit. 2019 has been one of the biggest years for the Specialized-sponsored Deceuninck – Quick-Step, with over 66 victories total. To celebrate, they’re making 200 custom painted frames – with the No. 1 frameset delivered to the team at Giro d’Lombardia. That leaves 199 for customers, who can buy one for $5,500.

Check out the press release below for full details.

  1. $5500…such a deal for a mass produced, big brand bike frame. So $1200 for the frame and $4300 for the paint.
    I guess this a way for Specialized to get their sponsorship money back

  2. Another occasion for Specialized to make even more money on stock frame with “special edition” paint job. In this way they should celebrate more often. Lovely marketing. Well done Specialized!

  3. I still have and ride an 09 Tarmac Pro frameset built with 10sp Record, Eurus tubeless and EC90Slx bars. I never removed the team Quick-step sticker on the top tube. Perhaps I can fetch an extra grand for it on the bay?
