^ THIS.....I would think the full tape negates the aero benefit. If you want to ride on the tops get a round bar.

I thought the truck was going to run over the bike. That's what they do around here, usually with the rider on it.

I'm guessing you don't cycle to save the planet then? (that truck!)

The truck is better than the "garage door" pose
Nice Venge, I quite like the green, it is different to the standard stealth or black, white and red combos most manufacturers go for.
I have to agree with @btompkins on the bartape on the tops for aero bars. Wrap just past the hoods, and leave the tops exposed. They are wide enough to be comfortable without tape, and any hard riding will be on the hoods or in the drops where you have tape for grip/padding

Love the truck. It needs a green pinstripe to match the Venge

You should consider SRAM Red w/the green decals, don some green hods with glossy black bar tape!

Your truck got more attention than your bike :D

As mentioned before, the green tape does not fit with the green of the frame. Also fully wrapped aero drop bars, does not look cool.
I think black tape which wrapped till the tops will look better. I also would go for double tape. Porky drops looks better IMO and also has better feel on sprinting.

Thats what I plan on doing. Just need to pick up some tape.

I have a 56 and 58 SW Venge. I like the 56 a lot more and I'm at 6'1.5", but you seem to have really long legs or are even taller than me.

I gotta ask your saddle height. I'm at 78cm center to top.
