    Hi, yeah i've researched the Ultra Torque cranks on OSBB to death. I don't think there's a piece of material on the net i've not read on the subject. I am a Campag man...full stop. I looked at the S Works cranks and i'm not keen on them and at 700 (UK prices) i think there a total rip off. I can afford them, but i'd just not pay it !

    As far as i hear, Specialized have now ok'd the use of the Ultra Torque pressfit cups in their delrim cups as a workable solution.

    I have ran Ultra Torque adapters previously in my R5 Bbright frame, fitted with loctite and have experienced no problems. I am a light rider at 145lbs.

    I don't wish to disrespect anyone else's experience's as i know some have had success with the Ultra Torque cups, and others haven't. I have used Loctite 603 with Activator 7479 to install the Specialized delrim cups into the frame first, then the same with the Ultra Torque 68x42 pressfit adapters. Used a bottom bracket press and left for 24 hours for a solid cure. All spins sweetly. I'll keep an eye on it, although i don't anticipate any problems at all. If i do experience any issues, i'll simply buy the C Bear adapter and use that.

    Sorted. Full Record 11 on my Venge. Wouldn't have it any other way.

    The New Venge

    Hi Guys,
    Was very happy to finally pick up my new Venge the other day after a 4 month wait on the frame.
    What a fantastic bike! .I pulled most the parts across from my old Giant. The carbon dura ace cranks were very hard to find - though finally found a second hand pair. The Ultegra Di2 works a treat, though needs a bit of fine tuning. Couldnt be happier!!!

    Allez (Project Black) and Venge (PB) ready for 2012

    Custom painted Allez by the great folks at Class Act Painting in PDX. Awesome job and great service. Both bikes shod with SRAM Red and Specialized OSBB Cranksets. Allez weighs in at 15.8 lbs. with Rolf Elan clinchers and the Venge 14.7 lbs. with Rolf Vigor clinchers.

    Sl3

    This is my new SL3 with dura ace gruppo. It is a Saxo Bank team geometry S-Works 58 cm frame that was custom painted "Project Black" style by the folks at Carbon Fiber Repair. Haven't decided whether I will add graphics back as I am so digging it without.

    With the new wheels....

    Took Cosette out for a quick ride today, and loved the Ksyrium Elites. Feels like the wheels are up to the level of the bike. Now if only I was up to the level of the wheels...
