.....The Venge is steering different then the tarmac is. The venge is pushing you more forward from a certain point of speed. The tarmac doesn't have this feeling and so is the tarmac less sensitive to corrections when cornering.

Thank you for the comparative feedback, very useful. How does that steering feel on the Venge translate into stability on descents? Does the bike still feel stable and solid at high speed even with the quicker steering?
It feels very stable on quick descents and very stable on high speeds and it's much better then the Vias but it is, how would I say it, less fragile/less responsive/slower then the tarmac?

I'm surprised that you say CLX64 are way stiffer then CLX50. I get it, it might be a little stiff, but so that it affects comfort? I don't know.
I currently have Allez Sprint X1 (61cm too) on CLX64 and Tarmac SL5 disk on CLX40. Should I expect decrease in comforn if I put CLX64 on Tarmac?
