My new S-Works WC46 56cm Venge. Numbered 15 of just 200 made worldwide. Matt finish, gloss text. Rotor 3D+ chainset; 170mm arms, 53/39 chainrings, 12/25 Dura Ace cassette, Rotor chain (KMC), Rotor chain catcher attached, FFWD F5R C tubular wheel set, Vittoria Corsa tubs, TRP 970 SL calipers, S-works bars/stem and 143 Romin Pro Saddle, Look Keo carbon pedals, Dura Ace shifters, front and rear mechs, s-wrap classic tape.

This is a 40th birthday gift to myself. All parts excluding BB30 chainset stripped from previous bike, cleaned, made good and re-used. Red ferrules added to cable ends as a little touch. Ideally, would like a little less red on the wheelset but I have balanced that out with the white saddle and white bar tape. I normally only ever use black on the contact points but felt that the white lifted the colour and tied in the theme nicely. Before the build I was cautious it would clash, but now I love the 4 tier colour way of black, white, red and silver (silver found inside seat and chain stays as well as forks).

I know the Venge has its detractors but I absolutely love it and thankfully where I live, those deft Roman cats left some lovely roads behind which my bike will love :D

Thanks for looking. Finally, weight as seen 15lb 6oz.

Love to all x

Really nice looking bike, I originally went with white saddle and bartape with white hoods, but after 12 months switched bartape and hoods to black, as the white looked awesome when new, but became a mission to keep clean.
Just a thought - some custom black on black wheel decals might look really good on your bike.
What is the weight, and more importantly a review on the ride.

I hope Specialized know what they are doing ... TRP 970SL calipers are not entirely compatible with DA 7900 brake levers, that's why TRP brought out the 979 range of levers. http://www.trpbrakes.com/products.php?catid=183

I cant, under a clear coat finish. FFWD are releasing some black on black decals which are due into the UK sometime soon.
