Just finished putting this bike together yesterday. My Allez is still going to be the crit bike, but the Venge will see longer circuits and road races. I haven't had a chance to ride it yet, but will this weekend. The frame is 56cm and was fit exactly like my Allez (BG fit): a 5mm spacer was needed under the stem as the Venge has a shorter head tube but a taller bearing cap.

I'm usually not a big fan of rider bikes (you won't catch me riding a Jens Madone or a Spartacus Domane). However, this bike just works. Really nice setup, without being a carbon copy of the pro bike.

It also helps that my only other exporsure to this frame is here locally (South Texas), and the shop that set the guy up really did a bad job (there's only one Specialized dealer in this area). Poor fit, poor component choices; it looks like they took a guy with more money that sense for a ride. Your bike, on the other hand, looks really nice. Congrats!

Wow - that is a great looking paint job - absolutely love the metal flake, I'm sure it looks awesome when the eight catches it. Perfect component choices, just a really solid build.

I have been looking for one of these frames in Australia. Size 58. I love this frame though no one seems to have one.

Really nice bike mate, you have done well.
