Very nice build, I do own a venge as well and was thinking on switching the oe stem/bar combo to EXS Aerover, on yours I do see somekind of spacer between the handlebar and the headset topcap that doesn't sit flush, can you elaborate on that pls, is that the spacer (transition) that exs provide for the venge or something you put yourself?

regards
it doesn't sit flash because I don't use the exs transition spacer. The fork steerer tube was cut to a minimum for the OEM stem by the previous owner. The stack on the exs is a bit higher than the OEM, so I decided to "gain" some of the steerer tube by removing the transition spacer. TBH I like a lower position, so this worked for me.
Ok thanks for the info, at this time I have: oe headset cap,5mm spacer and transition spacer for the -12 stem, I believe the EXS kit might work.
Yes it will work.

Nice! One piece bar, Deda Traforato, and Galfer Wave would get you in the 6.7kg range.

My 58cm was a similar built and ended up around 6.9kg. You really don't need to choose between light and aero if you pick your parts carefully.

Also the chain rings but I just wanted to stay under 7
But..
Is there a one piece bar that match the spacers flawlessly?

I used the sub-300g RSL VRC with the spacer for standard stems and it looked clean.

Impressive weight, I may have missed it but what are the components to get you under 7kg?

Swapped rims over to low profile Roval C38 with Galfer Road Wave Rotors and Vittoria Corsa. Crosswinds no longer an issue on fast descents
