Hi all,

Here's a couple of shots of the latest acquisition - a Specy S-Works Venge Di2.

Sweet bike, if you've got the legs!

If you've got the legs to reach the pedals?:)

Ok, that's nice. Could use some cages, too. The Zipps would look cool with silver logos (or without).

Jman: True! I'm blessed (?) with a 38 inch inseam, so maximum seatpost is the rule :lol:

Geoff: Yep, added some Arundel Dave-o cages a week or so after these shots were taken. I take your point about the Zipp stickers, but the white ones will do for now (until they get all torn up - which, given the paper-thin quality of them won't be long).

Awesome bike. Needs Zipp decals that match the frame.

Found my Exposure under seat mount always snapped. The elastic bands would always start to crack when exposed to bad weather.

deltree: two solutions (one facetious and one practical) A. Don't ride in bad weather :P and B. Try using the industrial rubber bands that come with Garmin mounts (if you have any)... they're nice and black, cheap to replace and last a fair bit longer than the rubbish that Exposure provide!

As I said earlier, I'll get some new Zipp decals when these ones die. Which they inevitably will.

Well done Velovecycles. Really like your build. Those extra red bits really make the build pop.

Looking at the pictures agin, with the frame size and saddle height, I think you need to get some 808FC to help fill out the frame some more. :)

I agree with 53, get some 808's on there. For some reason just doesn't look right with the 404's you have on there.
