I've switched over to 34/52 on my Venge Pro disc di2 ready for Tenerife. However it won't shift up on the chainrings now. Doesn't seem to go far enough. Any idea what's wrong??
I have been running 52/34 with 32 cassette on my R8000 climbing bike for the Alpes and it works fine. I'm interested in your issue because I wanted to put a 52/34 on my Venge Pro to use for climbing. I also find a 52/36 with 32 cassette still might not be enough for tired legs in the mountains.

DI2 can restrict using certain gears, have you tried shifting up chainrings from different cassette sprockets?

Technically.. you're outside of the range FD range. It is supposed to be 16 teeth, which is why 52/36 and 50/34 exist. I have heard of people running 52/34 though and it working, so perhaps there's some adjustment? which gear did you change? Did you move 50 to 52 or 36 down to 34?
Changed 36 to 34, it'll only be there for a few rides before I go to Tenerife.
Did you move the FD at all or simply swap on the smaller inner ring?
There was some adjustment of the FD (manually) and I used it really bad weather on Saturday and it shifted well going up, shifting down was def fast.

I am switching to a wheelset with a mutch quieter rear hub (FFWD F6D), which brings a "problem"... I will need a bike bell. Question is - where do I put it? You know the bar on the Venge, also the stem, also the garmin front out mount - all standard that came with the bike, and I love them so don't want to change a thing.
But then again - where do you guys put your bells?
Unfortunately I can't scare off people or at least let them know I am around with my rear hub sound anymore.
Thanks in advance!

How is your Venge compared to your Aeroad?

I elaborated on this thread a bit earlier, but to summarize - I love the Venge and don't regret for a second changing from Aeroad! First of all it feels a lot stiffer around the bottom bracket, so you can actually tell where your watt are going. This is not to say Aeroad is bad in any way, but in Canyon terms Venge relates to Aeroad SLX like Aeroad SLX relates to Aeroad SL.... Different class. Since I rode the bikes back to back in two consequent days obviously my fitness level did not change. Rode the same route as with Aeroad and got multiple PRs... And the wind conditions were worse for the Venge. And the power on the same segments was around 1-2% deviation. Maybe it was just my excitement from the new frame, who knows...
Anyway - love the S-WORKS Venge.
Hope that helps a bit

That's the thing.with axs... It's really heavy (when compared with the competition). I'm still to be convinced that axs is actually an improvement over previous 11spd etap group.

That venge is still a very good looking bike. Damn!!

AXS is pretty heavy yes, but the DUB cranks are actually some of the lightest out there.

Interesting article here from Cycling Weekly from March 19 comparing Red AXS with DA Di2. All that extra weight eluded to amounts to about 123 grams, depending of course on the configuration. Obviously this isn't a true comparison as it's with Shimano's 11 speed offering not 12. I don't know how the weight of the original 11 speed Red eTap compared with DA, maybe that's a lot closer or the eTap might even be lighter. I guess once Shimano 12 speed is available, we'll have a better idea, in the meantime i guess you pays your money and takes your choice
