With that build the none integrated brakes looks out of place. Sick bike though!

Super nice! Looks like a very smart build + nice aesthetics. Tell us more about the rear derailleur modification. The pulley wheels look much bigger than stock.



it's a "berner bike" rear derailleur, it's told to save 5,85 watts but that is perhaps a story, philipe gilbert used that derailleur in 2011


Closer to 0.85W. Marginal gains and all that though :wink:

Awesome looking Venge, nice to see one that isn't black for a change.

Very nicely co-ordinated with the Zipp wheels, parts and decals.

Good job :thumbup:

Is this model a lower grade carbon than the S-Works?

If so, it's lighter than I'd have guessed with the white paint. My OPQ 54cm frameset with all the hangers, guides and bosses is 1019g

I personally feel that the Venge should not be built up with anything but 80mm (or bigger) wheels to instigate its purpose. What an astonishing looking bike. Cheers!!

It's awesome only with 808 wheelset!

Did you paint the seatpost or it was white?

thanks for your friendly comments :)

the pro frameset is the 10-fact carbon, the s-works the 11-fact,
the seatpost is custom painted, so that it fits to the frameset like the other versions

Hmm..the seatpost and other details show that you have great taste.

Do you have experience with other Speci models in order to compare?
How its riding feeling?
