I thought there would be several people out here who agree that these sticker sizes went up to a point where is is not important if they are black or white otherwise I would not have mentioned the king size black Meilenstein LW stickers.
So either you do the marketing job for them or you have to take them off.
Whereas I would like other people would have to look twice to realize a small molded brand name within the carbon or have to ask .

I think with the white tape, saddle, housings, & wheel logos/spokes...

It is one of the most well balanced builds I have seen (with Enve or LW).

Great build and congrats on the win.

thanx guys!

it's the machine who did it ;-)

There was one guy who did better, but his reputation was not in his favour: I'm talking about Emmanuele Negrini who did 5h50min on it some years ago ; afterwards he has been suspended for the rest of his days while he as been 'busted' a couple of times using EPO and other illegal stimulating products; not only during the cyclosportives, but also in the period when he was pro rider the years before

I've been training two weeks in the Alps before the Marmotte; sunday before the Marmotte I participated at the Vaujany cyclosportive (5h29min over 173km; 6 min faster than previous record); the Prix des Rousses at wednesday in the pooring rain (1h41min, 6 min slower than last year)

back at home I'm driving my specialized sirrus pro 2009 with backrack and mud fenders to go to work; a very smooth ride while working on my endurance

But think how much faster you would have been had you not opted for the special edition Ventoux, with all that extra weight from the painted spokes.

Congrats great work!

What seatpost and stem are you using? Is that Vittoria Pitstop on the back of the seatpost?

As winner, were you subject to doping controls?

Is this a repaint? I like the minimalist graphic treatment.
