The yellows stop in the dry but are grabby, noisy, crap in the wet and require frequent rim cleaning or they become even more grabby and covered in yellow stuff.

that is right for the "race pro" but i use the "flash pro", not noisy and no requiring of frequent rim cleaning (that's what i hate ;) )

What an amazing bike mate!, for me is the most beautiful Venge i ever seen!, could i ask you a question???, did you paint the seatpost in white or is possible to get it in that colour from Specialized, i saw the Venge Pro frameset in white with the seatpost in matt black
Enjoy it, is a really really great bike!

hi, thanks for the compliments and sorry for answering lately,

yes, the seatpost is painted white and i made black graphics like the white ones before,

i think the seatpost is part of the frame, especially of the aeroframes with extra designed posts
so the color and design of the seatpost should be the same as the the color and design of the frame

I fall in love with your Venge!!!, i have a Tarmac and i'm thinking to change it for a Venge frameset, but i have some doubts, my Tarmac has a BSA bottom bracket and i use similar crankset than you(mine are Rotor 3d+), the thing is that i have to replace the bottom bracket for a BB30 of Rotor, i saw in your bike that you installed spacers between the bottom bracket and the arm of the crankset, do you know the length of it???, because there are many sizes, 11.35,8.5,5.5mm....., Thanks a lot for your time, it's an amazing bike!, i couldn´t upgrade it!

there are several possibilities of mounting your 3d+ into a osbb-frame

1. you use the normal pf30 bb which comes with the frame and mount your 3d+ directly with the 11mm spacers on both sides
2. you can use bb-cups from www.c-bear.com, they replace the spacers and you don't need any pf30-cups
3. you can use an bsa-adapter (also from c-bear) and use the ritor bsa-30 cups (this is my solution)

i use the 3d+ in five frames with different bb's.... so cool!

How are the Exustar pedals? Are they as reliable as Look pedals?
