Any feedback from your friend? Curious about the ride quality. So little actual information on these.

I test rode a Venge this weekend and while the ride was rough, it made me smile. I wish there were some comparisons/reviews on the standard build V3 as the pricing is quite attractive for an Ultegra DI2 build.
Check out the Parlee RZ7 if you want a smoother riding Venge.

Ride quality..... sublime.

I ride in the UK where road surfaces are at best ....choppy.

Wether it's Kamm profile seatpost, wether it's dropped seatstays or 28mm tyres or even the polymer insert in the headset, this is is the most comfortable carbon bike I've ridden. The fact that it comes in 1cm size increments and the geometry is well proven means it handles how you expect/want it to.

Comparisons and reviews are just someone else's opinion, you need to try for yourself. I bought mine based on previous Colnago experience and couldn't be happier.

Forza!

Wonder how the V3RS will compare to the Tarmac sl7 in weight and aero terms. The Tarmac optically does look quite a lot like the Colnago.

That is exactly how I would have built it if it was mine!

It's all downhill from here, except for the uphills.

Mine should arrive next week, can't wait.

V3RS with Etap Red Axs.

Will be a nice addition to the Merckx and the Aeroad. Will report as soon as I have ridden it a few times..
