Specialized Venge 11 speed DI2

Zipp 404 w/ custom decals
Sprint Shifters in the drops
fizik bar tape / saddle
All Dura-Ace
Zip Stem / Handlebars

Weighs in just under 16lbs.
Put the bike together myself.

To do: Fit the bike.
Cut the steer tube down.
Find a lighter seat.
Possibly replace the handlebar tape with black - I don't like the shade of green - what do you think?

Not much to say - nice bike and build.

The guy with the pick up truck needs to work on his parking skills though.

That is nice, really nice. I like the Zipp wheel decals.
One small thing - black bar tape or green that matches your decals would make it perfect.

Holy drop!

Keep the green bar tape. No one has green bar tape. It's my favorite part of your build.

*edit*

Put it in the big ring.

Black bar tape!

Usually dislike rim decals but they work great here. Cool bike.

I say keep the green bartape but loose the wheel decals. Reminds me very much of my buddies de Rosa merak.

What is most important to show. Car or bike?

I agree that trying to share the spotlight with the truck doesn't do the bike any favors... or the truck, really.


Also... you (fully) wrapped Zipp Vukasprints..??
