Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

I know these a lot of hate towards Venges, (almost as bad as the Trek hatred. ) but I love to the Venges.
This one is HOT!

I know, I apologized afterwards. It's just so easy to throw it up there while in the big ring with Di2. When you don't feel the tension like you do with mech, it just becomes another gear...that's my one gripe with di2, is how you lose that connection to listen to what the bike is telling you. I know, 1st world problems.

HOT!

I'm also running the Zipp version of that bar and love it; although, it IS a bit meaty when riding with the hands on top. Haven't decided if I feel I have a reliable grip or not (my riding gloves are XL so it ain't like I have dainty hands).

That is really a badass looking rig but I wonder whether those bars would brush up against the front of your quads when you are out of the saddle climbing with your hand on the hoods?

You need a big, fat, heavy Kryptonite lock.
You can probably find one that weighs the same as the bike.

In this case, photos of your riding in the drops are necessary before a hot or not verdict can be issued:-)

I'd need a ladder for that drop.
Traction afterward, too.

either your anatomy allows you to push our your hips like a transformer so your arms can go down to the drops, or you knee yourself in the face with every stroke

Based off of what? It will be hard to find a larger frame that allows him that bar drop without a custom or track stem. It's not like he has a stack of spacers.

At the end of the day harun is winning races so I'll assume he has an idea of what he is doing. It woukd be different if he was some newbie who just started riding. Not a set up I can do or would want but its not my bike.
