Hi all,

Just wanted to share some pics of my Stevens Ventoux Di2. I just glued up some Corsa CS's on the 9000 C35's and took her for a spin. Coming form C50 clinchers, these wheels are much livelier and responsive. Weight is now down to 6.72kg, which is nice I suppose :-)

Nice.

Really like the lines especially with 35 mm wheels, and the setapost completes it perfectly IMO.

Thanks for the nice words! Seatpost is nice indeed. Quite comfortable and light. Funny thing is, I was disapppointed with the front end comfort until I switched from the carbon Pro Vibe stem to the aluminum PLT stem. This really is one comfortable stem, and plenty stiff too. Weigt of the 130mm PLT is exacly the same as the 120mm Vibe when I switched over the ti stem bolts.

@ Rene: Haha, yeah, I'm surprised it took 4 posts for someone to complain about the valve extenders ;) Truth is, I have previously used the short ones you are using on your Scott (beautiful build by the way), but it's a hassle to inflate the tires with my pump which has a brass head without a clamping device; It relies on friction between the valve stem and the rubber seal ring inside the pump head to stay put under pressure. It barely seals the valve if I use the short one and keeps popping off. These longer extenders are hassle free, but I agree it looks kind of bad.

About the ride: Very powerful, with amazing bb and front end stiffness. Frame weight (size 58) is 981g, fork weighs 316g cut to size. The geometry makes for an agile bike: wheel base is short-ish: 995mm, with 73,5 degree angles. Effective top tube length is average for the size: 570mm. The 130mm stem makes the overall handling close to neutral.

The thin seat stays make for a very comfy rear end. I used to get numb hands with the all carbon cockpit, but since I changed stems the front end transformed into being quite comfortable as well. It truly is a very nice ride indeed.

thats a nice looking bike :)
It looks kinda "normal" but with a little twist. Only thing i do not like are the crakns as the are looking a bit to "big" for this bike.
