So new bike day is very nearly here. I just need to build the thing!

I've just received my brand new 2020 S-Work Venge and have a fairly complete build list which I'll put below.

The only really question mark is which handlebar to go for as the Specialized Aerofly ii is out of stock until at least October in my size. Are there any other options that will allow for fully internal routing? Preferably with a shorter reach than the Aerofly as well. Let me know.

Anyway, looks to be heading towards 8kg which isn't too bad. Some room for improvement though, suggestions welcome.

Thanks

LOVE that color. A bit jealous.

My handlebar recommendation would be Pro Vibe Aero. I've run one for a few thousand miles and I've loved it. Building up an S-bike myself though so I'll be going Aerofly II.

Very nice! Pro vibe aero incl. Superlight version is a great alternative

Will the Pro-Vibe allow for fully hidden cables up front? Cheers for the recommendations!

Pieces are pretty much all in now! Excluding the bar...

Looking at building it up with an alloy bar and swapping later...ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Not broken, just without the mount fitted.

The build is FINALLY finished. I had huge trouble getting a hold of the Aerofly ii bars which delayed things a bit...

But still, here she is. Will post a full build list below. Image

Very unobservant! I do apologise.. in that case even more keen to know the weight of the frame with out the fork, and also if anyone has a competing 58 weight for a black one... planning to pull the trigger in the summer on one and it needs to pull double duty as a rolling course TT rig and a mountain goat rig with enve 7.8s and roval Terra clx's
