Thank you. Unfortunately, the seller did not comply with my request for no logo on the saddle. It's a wider 132mm version, so it's not a 1:1 copy, but I don't feel too good about it. I think I'll try to remove it somehow...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's against forum rules to share these links.

Hi,
I finally finished my absolute dream bike.
Amazing build with a much higher than usual attention to detail.

You should post it in the Introduce Yourself / Gallery subforum

Some minor recommendations:

for the radar / light mount I can recommend concentric cycling

Weights for my SL6 version:

Also I'd keep an eye on rear shifting quality. Personally I like the more solid ones which are stiffer to resist shifting forces and are not that much heavier. Silca makes a Ti 3D printed one while pilo (europe) and wheelsmanufacturing (USA) make great machined hangers.

Thank you for your kind words and recommendation. I was actually thinking about rhinoworkshop's r-works hanger, but I'll consider your recommendation. My Varia mount is not necessarily the stock one ;) I bought it from https://www.ebay.pl/itm/375170663533 and used the stock rubber band which turned out to be lighter.

Fantastic build and impressive low weight, wziel! I was not aware that a Hylix seatpost for the MY19 Venge is available. I will grab one too :-)

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.
