I'm going to buy a new racing frameset and I'm choosing between these two aero frames.
I want to know which frame is better.

Buy the one that matches your shoes. Seriously ask a sensible question dude.

The Venge will make you as fast as the world champion because that's what he rode before swapping it for a Dogma2 but looking at your body type I think the geometry of the 54cm Oltre would better suit you.

As the FNG, you're going to get that here.

I haven't ridden the Oltre, but have friends that ride it. They seem to like it just fine. As for the Venge, for some reason it gets a lot of heat (I suspect from people who don't have a whole lot of hours on it).

My experience to date on the Venge has been excellent. It is almost as stiff as any other bike I have had. With respect to aero, it feels fast, but other than getting some track time, I don't think you will get anything more than anecdotal stories. I am the first to admit that the bikes in my collection are not necessarily indicative of the performance of the stock bike, but in is case, I believe that the bike I am on has a layup schedule identical to the stock bike (ok, it's the McLaren, but at least you can actually buy it).

I am on a 54. The only thing I don't like is that the headtube is really tall. I have heard talk of a flatter top cap, but haven't seen it yet. When we were at the ToC, some of the guys I know were running the Venge without the factory top cap to get a bit lower, which works, but doesn't look so good...
