    New Year. New Design. S-WORKS Venge Vias REFLECTIVENGE 2.0

    Decided to make a little change from the previous design. Still a work in progress but here's a sneak peak. Also picking up the new brake calipers tomorrow so will be interesting to see how they compare.

    Mile2424. It looks good and looks like it going to take a lot of time to do the whole frame. Question, what new brakes are you referring to? Do you have a part number? My LBS doesn't seem to know anything about the new brakes.

    I'm a fan. Any pics of the whole thing or aren't you done yet? Gonna reflect up the wheels too?

    My Mavic Cosmic Carbone wheels have reflective logos on them, but they are black and almost invisible without a bright flash/light source.

    Not done yet. Hopefully will get it finished and built back up within the next 2 weeks. I will probably leave the wheels alone like I did before. It's a cool idea, but the frame will already be plenty busy looking so I think I prefer the more subtle wheels.

    Little update on the project. Decided to add the clear coat over the design to keep it protected from the elements. I also wanted the glossy look instead of the stock matte black. Little teaser for now, but should have the full bike assembled next week....

    Did they make you pay anything for the brake update parts?

    Good... I was just wondering. Finally bit the bullet now that I can get one for half the initial cost. Previous owner had not done the brakes yet. He's doing them before shipping though as it was unclear to me not just whether they were charging original owners but second owners. Recall is for everyone but that doesn't seem to be the word they are using for the brake parts.
    Previous owner said he didn't have any issues with the brakes before the mods, just FYI.

    Nice congrats! Ya I think it's one of those of things they aren't really advertising but if you ask for it they should replace. It will be interesting to see the difference if any between the brakes. I heard it's more of an ease of setup thing. If the original brakes are set up correctly then they should work just fine.

    That's pretty awesome - and pretty visible too - would be interesting to see how it reflects in car headlights.

    Have you given any though to putting some reflectivity on the wheels?

    It should reflect to car headlights pretty similar to the video. That's just an iPhone LED with that reflection but should be something similar on the road.

    I thought about doing the wheels, but didn't want to mess with those and thought I'd leave them as is.
