Haven't been around for a while, but this is my new ride. Custom Build, full Super Record. Thought I'd share a shot of it before it's maiden excursion.

Nice Bob!
likewise, here's my 2013 OPQS Venge, with standard mechanical 7900.
Yes I know it needs dish wheels.

I'm about to go pick up my Venge DA build and have the same wheels! what an ironic surprise to come across your pick.

I'm looking forward to this bike. A big step up from my Madone 5.2SL.

Anywho, nice ride!

Awesome ride! I wish you the best. Are you sure you need the saddle so forward?

Saddle looks fine. Some people, myself included, have proportionately short thighs

Thanks for the replies. And yes the saddle is perfect like that & I know my fit and measurement extremely well. All my bikes are setup similar to this and I do have shorter thighs and prefer to be foward. I could flip the seat post around, but it does look weird. I really need 0 offset, but I have never bothered before.

Ride report back from this mornings ride........OMG. I bought this frame purely on the basis of looks, marketing hype, the fact a mate runs a specialized shop :mrgreen: and quite a few of my buddies ride specialized. Now some may say kiting out a bike like mine without sitting on let alone riding one is mad, but I'm an avid researcher and know what I like the look of and what suits me.

I'm very pleased to say that on two fronts that it's not all marketing. A) the frame and B) the wheels. I know it's early day and NBS (new bike syndrome) hasn't worn off yet, but this is an exceptional machine in all aspects. The fit is perfect and it's super comfy and bloody quick. On my normal Saturday bunch ride, which I might add is one of the quicker groups around although small which makes it tougher, I felt extremely in control and quite a few commented on my extra pace it wasn't real windy, but there was a stiff breeze and it felt better than both my other bikes with low wheels.

One happy bike builder / owner :thumbup:

Dave

Oh and how could I forget, this is weight weenies after all it weighs in at a bees d!ck under 7kg (15lb 4oz) including everything even my Garmin. I'll measure it Monday on another set of scales to verify. I know it's not real weenie, but it is solid and a size 56 or Large. Also if anyone wants any individual weights on anything on my bike I have a book with everything written down and I mean everything. :shock:

Dave, who did you get your Venge thru?
I went through bike now in Melbourne.
I agree with the weight too. It's heavier than my Fuji SST but feels a lot more nimble.
