The manual says Barfly accessories fit... I was under the impression the supplied mount accepted Garmin, Wahoo etc.. Spec part #S189900104
The mount kit has just about everything you need, adapters for Garmin, Wahoo, Bryton, etc.

I've just ordered a Specialized Venge Pro, does the computer mount kit definately come with the bike?

Thanks.

Does anyone "hear" when sprinting with high power or climbing with higher power (end of climbs) that disc pads are rubbing calipers ? Is this normal ?

Pads rubbing rotors? Yes. If the pads are rubbing the calipers, you have issues.

Not normal, but common if you don't take a few necessary steps.

1) Align your caliper perfectly
2) Make sure your rotor is true
3) Make sure your TA is torqued down to a consistent value
4) Make sure your hub has no play / appropriate preload

I've had the following sources of rub during my first few weeks; Axle torque too loose, pistons on one side moving less. Both these lead to bent rotors.
Tried cleaning and excercising the pistons as per Park Tool instructions, but they are still slow on one side so I'll let my LBS have a go and possibly flush the hydraulic fluid to clean the piston seal.

I think my next bike disc brake bike will have Campa, they seem to have more features for preventing disc brake rub (magnetic return, floating rotor).

Has anyone tried using a normal stem with their 2019 Venge?
I have a -12 Stem on my 49cm and the bars are still too high for me - short legs, and long arms.
I'd want to swap to a -17 or -25 stem, but unsure if the spacers would get in the way of the steeper stem.

Yes u can use a normal -17 degree stem or -25 degree one (never seen one before). U need to use a different spacer cover (provided by the frameset) in order to route the hydraulic cables into the frame.

too much preload and the wheel will not spin very well...
too little and it will spin fine, but may not be very round or spin true = brake rub

I understand the mount is manufactured for Specialized by Tate Labs (Bar Fly) hence the compatibility of adapters
