Does somebody know what's the difference between the black and the grey/yellow frame or is able to measure it?

Nice! Does the frame come with a bung to cover the di2 junction box hole in the post?

I recently bought a Venge Pro. I swapped the wheels to the CL 64 and did my first ride yesterday. Are the discs supposed to rub whenever out of the saddle? I adjusted the rotors/calipers by loosening the caliper bolts and squeezing on the brakes while tightening the calipers. This my first ever disc bike, so I'm not sure what to expect. The rotors seem true.
Did you get a sollution for this problem? My dad has the same problem with his venge.

While that is the most straightforward way to align a caliper, it doesn't always work. You need a workstand where you can spin the wheel and make sure the caliper is properly aligned. Also make sure to reset the pistons before you realign a caliper as they may be pushed further out on one side than the other.

I didn't really find a solution. I tried multiple things and then it just kind of went away. I'm guessing there is some break in required. Otherwise, it sounds like some rubbing is just normal with disc brakes.

roval clx wheelsets are flexy. try using another disc wheelset to see if the disc rubbing goes away.

Yeah no, they are a DT based hub that interface the same as many other hubs, the brake rub isnt caused by the wheel itself in a disc application, also dont know what wheels you have ridden but I've had several sets of CLX in varying depths and they're all stiff as buggery.

I’m sorry for my lacking technical knowledge - which components in a wheel are so flexy, that they affect the brake disc’s position in relation to the brake caliper? I can understand the concept of a rim rubbing a rim brake caliper, but a disc brake caliper is quite close to the hub and the brake disc is a part of the hub.

This.

The wheels have probably been built by some numpty, like the one who built my Enve 4.5s.

Once I had a proper wheel builder lace / tension them correctly, it was like owning a new set of wheels.
