Hello guys and gals,
As of last Friday I've been waiting for my S Works Venge to arrive at the LBS. I have to say I am very very anxious to see how my dream bike will ride once it is setup. It will be a "custom" build to what I thought was good for me. I will use it for racing this year and to crush local club rides .
The bike goes as follows:
* 2014 S Works Venge Silver, black and red Frame
* 2014 Shimano Dura Ace 9000 Complete Group 52-36 / 11-28
* S Works Aerofly handlebars
* Zipp 404 FC Clinchers
* Powertap G3 hub
* Specialized Romin Pro Saddle 155mm
* Stem: waiting for fit
* Bar tape: ???
* Tyres: Michellin Pro4 Service Course
* Brake pads: ???
The total build will hopefully come at around 15#s or maybe less and will be one heck of a fast bike!
I've been reading about the Venge in previous posts by BF members and most discussions tend to favor other bikes over they Venge but I have my heart setup for it. Please feel free to point out the things you like, dislike, what would you do different, what would you change, how does it compare to other bikes you've owned etc.
Now that people have been riding the frame for a while I'd like to see more up to date opinions.
and happy 2014!
