Just showed our area shimano rep the seatpost and his response was "that's cool, but as soon as you forget to close that cover in crap weather; warranty claims"

No different to anywhere else on the bike. If you're stupid enough to drown it then theres only one person to blame.. No doubt they would have been in consultation with Shimano over the placement of it due to how strict they are on supply limitations, who remembers SCS to get around their chainstay requirements?

What's the benefit of that placement though. That location is definitely subject to a ton of spray if the road gets damp. What's wrong with an integrated downtube junction?

Don't worry, the saddle bag will shield it ;)

I actually like the current Venge but this one looks even better!!
And much better than the Tarmac!

Looks like they used similar headtube routing design as BMC SLR01 Disc. Finger crossed for standard stem and bar support.
Looks like they're using a 31.8 bar with some wedges that gives it that massive airfoil look. Pretty clever if so.

Yep, it's a standard stem + aerofly bar, with some kind of fairing to fill in the gaps... Pretty neat solution to the adjustability problem of integrated bars

BSA 68mm BB - Yaaay! :D

Looks like we might be on the road to finally getting rid of that press-fit cr@p.

Looks very pedestrian compared to the old one, not necessarily a bad thing going by the weight and assembly 'quirks'. I'm sure it's superb though. Aero frames are definitely all following the same design cues nowadays, it must work I guess.

“SCS”... spell it out for me again. Is that where they had the proprietary hub requirements to accommodate for the revised chainline due to dropout width for discs? That wasn’t that long ago, right? Kind of like Cervelo’s proprietary cranks to accommodate for the revised chainline, except Cervelo changed things up front and Soecialized changed the rear. It’s getting harder and harder to keep track.

The Specialized pro teams always get threaded BBs on their bikes. Consider it “pro issue” only.

Rest assured, they aren’t going to put BSA on a production bike when it needs to accommodate 30mm S-Works carbon cranks. They could install those oversized shitty external cups, but won’t.

Hey guys,
Its not a threaded BB... its a ceramic speed outboard cup model for shimano cranks.. I have the exact same BB on my 2016 Sagan camo tarmac. Now saying not threaded, it does actually thread together in the middle since its 2 seperate pieces...

Prefer my old one in terms of looks. Wonder if the new one gets down to 6.8 kg though?

Yes. My Crux has a 12x135mm thru-axle and it was a huge PITA to get another wheelset. I even went back to Spesh to get a second set of stock wheels and they were sold out of literally every SCS wheelset they made, from $250 up to $2400. I had to buy the stock hubs and get wheels built or spend a fortune with Hope hubs. I told myself I didn't need another set of wheels for it, but then I went out and immediately sought one out.
