I was going to say a similar thing about how the red on the CK hubs laced to the Enves are picked up in the touches of red on the saddle rails, rear derailleur, and shift levers.
But I agree about the Lightweights. I don't usually love the white spokes, but they work well here!
It's nice to have options! Awesome that you can go either way and still look so good!
this machine will essentially be used in French and Austrian Cyclosportives such as Marmotte and Otztal Radmaraton
first test some days ago in the Belgian Ardennes (165km and 2800m uphill) with the enves was a success; ride was not too harsh, braking power was more than fair enough and the bottom bracket stiffness felt as good as my previous s-works SL3 tarmac;
the bike had a lot of succes with the other participants, or was it just the 'zooming noise' of those massive carbon clincher wheels...?
in resume, I'm very happy with it and this kind of timeless paintscheme is what I was looking for at Specialized since the time that scott came up with their stealthy black addict R1 version (2008)
But I like your bike and only with the LW setup. The white spokes look good in combination with the white S-Works logo and white bar tape,saddle.
But I really hate these king size,super-duper "here is your ENVE" stickers on your with no doubt great other wheels.
If these are blue shaded or declared as "smart" I really do not care.
Why is it so difficult to make a great wheel set as already regarded by many cyclists but step over to a new (old) understated trend.
Why not molding a small one placed logo into the rims like AX-Lightness did on their pedal arms of their crank?
This would even underline Enve's self confidence about the quality of their wheels.
Hmmmm... well "less aero" but nobody could sticker that off. And if there are customers who want the "ENNNNVEEEE" look then supply them with twelve!! stickers per wheel so that the message gets to the rest of the world.
Same can be addressed to Zipp, Campagnolo -Reynolds or Easton.
Refreshing "Lightweight" sticker sizes despite other rim dept but the Germans are also on the wrong path with their "new" "MMMMMEILENSTEEEEEIN"
Enjoy your ride.

The bike looks awesome with the LWs though. Nice job
Stickers can always be removed anyway, regardless of sticker/color policy on any particular model.
