    Hm...what method are you using in order to run those UT cranks? I'm quite certain that they're not compatible, but I've seen 2 people try two different ways and both failed. One damaged the frame.

    I don't know, I had a shop build it. Let me know what the two methods were and I will ask the mechanic and confirm. Thanks for the information.

    Sorry dustin, I can PM yet...need 10 posts.
    Thanks for the information. Wow...I feel like puking. I just built the bike and it has only 35 miles on it. Not to mention that I spent a couple thousand on the campy. Wow is all I can say... Thank you so much. You likely saved my frame.

    I don't like the pro version that's flat black with blue lettering. Funny enough, my LBS has a Venge built up that is a flat black Pro with white lettering. Looks just like the project black S-works, but its a pro model. Thought it was weird since that frame isn't on the Spec website anywhere. They also have a Green Jersey edition and a McLaren frame, so maybe they can get whatever the hell they want haha.

    The pro isnt cheap enough to justify not going with the s-works imo.

    For me the extra couple thousand $ was enough justification.

    Rather than deal with it, I just bought a Specialized crank. Wanna but a slightly used Campy SR TI crank?

    Got the call this morning that mine is nearly ready. Swung by the shop between meetings and got a quick phone photo of it. It should be done tomorrow. Pity it's raining... No chance to ride anytime soon!

    Will follow up with some better photos once I get it home

    figured it was time for me to post one of mine. i've had it built up for a while now.

    the side view is a shot before i did a little work to clean up the front wiring. i snapped the photo from the front after i did some of that work, but also to give an idea of the frontal profile of the bike. still about 15 minutes of work there to get the di2 wires largely hidden from the front, though the brake lines will be hanging out there.

    comes in at <15# as shown...with no crazy effort to be light. (deep wheels, di2, power meter)

    Hi,
    I'm sorry to use this picture but I find that the matt black Venge just looked like any brandless china-made frame with "specialized" smacked on the tubes. I see others made personal colors to it and it looked so much better. Specialized should give more color scheme for Venge.
    Again, I apologize if I offended some riders here.

    You should tell Cavendish and the other pros that are riding the Venge, see what they have to say. Anyone in the pro peleton riding a chinese made bike?

    No offense, but I doubt anyone in this thread cares about what someone on the internet says about their bike choice.

    I think he was just expressing an opinion about the coloring/styling of the bike, not really about the quality (or other attributes).

    Pro riders generally ride what their sponsors have them ride, with a few choices in a line.

    Anyway, I didn't take his comments to mean "the Venge is a bad bike" -- simply that matte black, to his eye, makes it look less distinctive.

    Then again, matte black happens to be my ideal, which is one reason why I like my Venge & Shiv TT. Then again, if they weren't great rides, the color would not matter (to me).

    If I can tell them, I would rather tell Specialized. Anyway, can anyone confirm the real bikes are not made in China or Taiwan? Most carbon frames even the high end ones came from there. I'm not saying anything bad about the bike nor the riders, I'm pretty sure there will be replicas soon and the last thing you want is people mistaken the real deal for fake.

    Thanks for understanding my point of view more or less. Venge would look different if the matt black frame/ fork is paired with shiny black decals. Or at lease some more designs on it, rather than the current wordings... this is just my opinion, you may disagree.

    My friends who ride Venge got nothing but compliments on the bike which I believe them, coz they are hard to catch up with...

    specialized bikes are made in taiwan, as are most bikes people are riding today (but certainly not all bikes).

    you're entitled to your point of view. anyone who selected a bike for what other people think is focused on the wrong thing.

    i would bet that the people posting in this thread are excited by their choice, and that's all that matters. not everyone chooses the same frame set for a variety of reasons, and even those who do like the same frame do not all choose the same colors & components. there are many points of view one can have in life, and many choices to match.

    I've been waiting 6 weeks for my S-Works Venge with SRAM Red to come in. It's been delayed twice. Anyone aware of any manufacturing issues that may be causing delays?

    Wow! I love the Zipp Vuka Sprint bars on tetonrider's bike. Not available at the Zipp dealer in Malaysia.
