Taking a simple children’s arts and crafts concept and attempting to make it as professional as possible. @im_tom_cruise threw his tarmac at me and said “do something you’ve been scared to do, I don’t care if you fuck up.” Here is the result. The biggest risks reap the biggest rewards. Huge shoutout to @collinchappelle for always making my work look even better on ? . . . #tarmac #specializedtarmac #sworkstarmac #tarmacsl6 #savetherimbrake #zippspeedweaponry #srametap #iamspecialized
This amazing custom marble-finish S-Works Tarmac SL6 has blown the collective minds of BikeRadar HQ.
The incredible custom finish was created by Tyler Marchesano — the wonder-mechanic behind the Di2shifter/PlayStation button mashup that we wrote about last year — who has recently branched out into paintwork.

- Is this PlayStation, SRAM and Di2 mashup the ultimate mechanics hack?
The risk has clearly paid off. The rich grey-ish-pink-ish marble finish is stunning and we’ve enjoyed ogling at this and Marchesano’s other work all day.
Exactly how he has pulled off the paintwork isn’t clear, but to our minds, the mystery only makes it all the more alluring.
