I hate the font of "Venge" on the seat tube.
the paint scheme on the white venge is looking pretty similar to recent treks. That's not a good direction. still hot but it is on a slippery slope with that paint.
I kind of dig that white/black/grey Venge. I've seen some pretty fugly Venge color schemes.

I don't care, about valve stems orientation, or white garage doors, or what gear its in.... but, I'm sorry to say, the white venge looks like it was assembled by a PBS employee ... saddle in tri-like position, front QR wrong side, handlebar rolled up, like old guys do with dt shift bikes. ( from that perspective. )

As much as I think the Defy Advanced is a well-riding & comfortable machine, that one aint dressed very pretty....and this thread ain't for the thin-skinned....

Thanks, a kind soul at last. Its my first road bike, when i replace it i want something less....colorful.
True, but it was on sale, I'm beginning to see why. Anyway, perhaps replacing the red cage with a matching white one would tone it down a bit. Last time i listen to the dork at the lbs.

That's good advice thanks, next replacement of tape will be black (originally it was white and I hated it) and I'm definitely replacing the red cage with a matching white one. May wait on the saddle for a bit but when it's time it'll be black. Thanks for the advice, its very much appreciated.
