The zipps are just fine on the Colnago. Just peel those stickers off. Great combo. But which one do you prefer to ride?

Wonderful bikes!

You MUST tell the difference in how they ride.

Alright, one can not post such a teaser pic and then just walk away. That is just mean!!!!

I am sure that specialized rides real nice, but damn if it aint UGLY. I'm sorry, but it is - it's a damn chopper with silly tube shapes.

With that said, I wouldn't kick it out of bed for eating crackers.

You must discuss the ride difference in frames.

That was mean, I know, I'm sorry...

Truth be told, I was in Amsterdam for the last 3 months since moving there from Chicago and took the C59 first. With no seat time on the Venge as it was winter and I was injured before I left, I came back to the states, road it for a few hours and then did two crit races on it yesterday. (Finished mid field but my training and I had a cold.... eh, my training has been poor this season), I'll bounce back.

The review is simple:

VENGE = Stiff, Porsche GT3 Track car gutted with roll cage.
C59 = Audi R10.

The Venge corners wonderfully but is twitchy.
The C59 is the perfect balance of stiffness and comfort but has a longer wheelbase so it is not as agile.

The components play an important role as well.

Enve's are stiffer but do not brake as well as the Zipps.

S-Works Toupé saddle is a race day saddle while the Selle Italia SLR better suits me for centuries.

Campagnolo SR mechanical is great on the Colnago while I have no regrets specing Ultegra Di2 on the S-WORKS.

If I had to pick one, the choice is clear, the C59 hands down, but I have to say I find the Venge oh so pretty to look at.

I'm keeping both for a while. There are tons of projects I would like to do (BMC Impec, S-Works Epic) but I'll probably sell the Venge in a few years for whatever new toy is out there.

I need something to put these on anyway...

Cheers!

I'm debating removing the white graphics on my MTBK C59 to expose the black underneath. I'd change out the Zipp wheel decals as well.

It would be like having a MTBK frame with NERO lettering and would be the only one like it, (that Ive seen).

Am I crazy, should I just leave it be?

Id say just leave it be, but since this is WW and people here worships experiments and home modifications, then do it!
