    I've got the seat as far forward as it will go on a zero setback seatpost to compensate for the seat tube angle.

    Stoker puts her elbows on the aerobar pads, and holds on to the captain's seatpost. The top of her helmet touches my butt. Quite aero, not a great view.

    Tonight's TT is the first time we've been able to measure power front and back, so we'll see how much power.

    Thanks. I replaced the stem, seat post and bottle cages, so just minor upgrades. I was curious what the consensus though.

    the matching stem/seatpost (and cranks) is actually what solidified the "hot" for me. I don't know what your bottle cages were before, but the white/black looks right

    Only thing that would make this bike any hotter would be a non-arched top tube. Friggen blazing.

    This Venge is as nice looking as they come. Ok, tell me if I am nit picking but the top tube / head tube junction is so massive that it makes the bars look out of proportion.

    I think it works with the size of the downtube.

    I'm not a fan of compact bars in general (from a comfort standpoint as well but especially from a looks point of view). I think aero frames just make them look worse. I think this bike is an absolute stunner as long as I don't look at the bars/stem.

    Great bike, great shots. Way to not follow the "rules" and really show the bike in the best way possible. White garage doors/walls get old real fast...like years ago. Brave move balancing that machine on a rock.
