I'm always amazed how fast this bike is. I ride my English 90% of the time as I'm doing a lot of hill climb training but when I hop on the Venge I'm always blown away how quickly it gets to speed and holds it.

I'm intrigued by the new Pro stems, might be a nice alternative to the sl7 or Venge stem with a nice little weight drop too b

Finally got around to building this up...few pics....

Might swap to a plain black stem since I'm an old man with those spacers. Also might change the turbo cottons to black.

But for now....

Looks great!

Has anyone used the Chinese Aerofly bars?

I have 440mm bars at the moment, but I wanted to buy 380 or 400 and originals are hard to find

anyone going to try this to their venge? seems like a good option to save weight especially in the stem area

Out on my Venge again today after a couple of days on the trusty tricked out C59. The latter will always be a luxurious ride, but man, the Venge is just awesome. Like the Colnago I reckon it's just going to get up gunned for the next decade. The incoming Melee has a lot of impressing to do...

A bit tempted to try more narrow & quite a bit lighter. But it's not the most cost-effective weightweenie choice, I think...

Bontrager should be even lighter and I'm happy with how that one fits my Venge
