I'm finishing building up a 2019 Venge frameset (Bora colors) that I bought recently. I'm reusing a Rotor 3D+ crank with a Power2Max power meter and 54/42 Q-rings from my previous bike (I live in flat country).
I have run into a clearance issue: the front derailleur can't be moved high enough to clear the 54T oval chainring. What are my options? I have read about braze-on adapters but I've never used one - they don't seem like a solid solution. Go back to traditional 53/39 round rings?

Rotor offers some kind of shim for this I think.

Does this seem like a bad BB on my 2019 Venge Pro? Bike has about 6000 miles on it.

https://photos.app.goo.gl/nmkL88JVq1ufvR5J8

The BB makes noise when I spin it - this noise reverberates through the frame. It's not a grinding/clicking/creaking sound... just a draggy/whooshy sound. Forgive the ambient noise. I will try get a better video later.

Has anyone replaced the stock Praxis BB30 BB with something else? I'd go for a one-piece if I decide to address this.

If it makes grinding noises it needs at least servicing. Anyway the resistance is a bit too high but could be a too high preload

Who has the Venge Pro in back matte satin (di2) with holographic decals?

How is the paint and decals holding up after 1-2 years of use?
Thanks

Haha. the discussion right above your post about a noisy BB is from my matte black with holographic decals that I've owned since September 2018. About 6k miles.

Paint is great. Couple of small scratches here and there. It is harder to clean than a glossy finish though. And tubeless sealant is a pain to get off it.

Looks/sounds fine to me
This video has less ambient noise -- https://photos.app.goo.gl/HHtDeaJCvtcvJbNe8

I reset the preload before taking this video. I also pulled the crank and felt the bearings. They feel smooth. However, I think the drive-side one is the one that is a little noisy. Maybe dry?

Sure, mainly the flat top section, prefer the feel of round bars, secondly they're heavier, lastly I can't fit tri-bars.
What bars are you using?

You should be fine using a front derailleur adapter. I have tried the Osymetric front derailleur adapter on a Venge together with a Praxis 56/42t combo without issues. https://www.bike24.com/p271907.html

Yes, I did just that. Ordered the Osymmetric adapter, installed it and went for a long ride today. It seems to do the trick. Shifts OK and the derailleur doesn't interfere with the chain when not shifting.

The 2018 onwards bearings are the same as one of the ones used on the Vias - can't remember which!
As RyanW says, follow his link to Airevelobearings, these are correct and the ones you need. The guys at
this company are very helpful and will sort you out
