The title says it all really! I know there are a fair few Specialized Venge's about on here, from the first few models right up to the new 2016 frameset but as far as I know there is no designated thread! I'd love to get inspiration from some others and also advice on setups too.

If you could add model year and frame size that would be great :D

So here it goes for me starting this off with mine:

Beautiful bikes guys! How are you finding the S-Works Cranks? Also, hydro brakes, what's the reason for you choosing them kidkarbon?

The Hydro-R brakes were chosen out of curiosity and nothing else, I prefer them to my disc braked bikes they are pretty good.

I like the S-Works cranks, they feel quite stiff and are an acceptable weight

Still running the stock tensioner on the Sworks crank? I ditched it on both of mine.

For those of you regularly removing these cranks be sure to pull the bolt out that holds the halves together and check it before reassembly, your nuts will thank you.

That Cav edition bike looks mint...

Fantastic stuff guys, preaching to the converted! What rear lights are people using for their aero-posts?

^I'm so lazy when it comes to build threads. I prob have a back log of about 3-4 I should do for current bikes but if I can get a friend to shoot some good pics I will do one for sure.

With chromo (have some Ti on another bike I should swap) SP's, cages and the Garmin mount its right at 7.8kg. Thats with the 4.5 clinchers. Haven't weighed with the 64's. Looking to build a deep set of tubulars for race day.

Glad you like it.
