    2015 Venge

    When do they normally announce the new ones.

    Probably a couple months before the 2015 Tour de France. I don't think they employ a specific time each year. Just whenever it makes sense based on their forecasted ability to ship bikes.

    The 2015 model year bikes are actually starting to trickle out now. We are about 3 weeks from the TdF, so I would expect to see something sometime between mid July and the fall bike shows (Interbike, etc.).

    There will not be a new Venge this year only the new Tarmac. Next year the next Roubaix will be announced before the Spring Classics possibly followed by an updated Venge.

    I'm inclined to think you are right. Is this inside knowledge or your own educated guess?

    Just to provide some clarification (in case someone doesn't understand the big picture), there will be a 2015 Specialized Venge. It is almost certain that it will not be a redesign this year like the new 2015 Tarmac. It will be just like the 2014 Venge, but will likely have new paint schemes, etc. It may or may not have new slightly different component packages. CL's timeline is consistent with what I have heard as well.

    If we're talking new color options then yes, there will be new paint schemes (which I have yet to see) but as far as a redesign like the Tarmac 15, then no. As soon as I see the new color options I'll be sure to post.

    Pretty much everything there is to know about the new Tarmac, specialized has already put out... there have been endless reviews, etc. and its on their website. Cant imagine that there is more to know.

    If there is no new Venge this year, that would be a little puzzling. It's already a year overdue. But if Cav isn't on one in a week, there won't be a new one this year.

    I have not seen anything on the Ultegra version which is the one I am referring to. Cost and availability.

    I've seen the following colours posted. The red/white/black combo is NOT coming to the UK, the rest are. I'm taking delivery of the black one on Wednesday.

    Nice find. But nothing that makes me want to pull the trigger. Will patiently wait for 2016 model.... hopefully to be released by next summer.

    Sorry no ... only S-Works on that link. Seems very quiet on the Venge, even with the TdF running. You would have thought they would be pushing out the new bikes and colours rapidly right now. Everything seems to be the Tarmac...

    If I was looking for an aero bike I would look at the Giant Propel before a Venge. Better wind tunnel numbers, stiffer, and a better price. Not sure about he Propel brakes though.

    That's a fine looking bike. Simple yet creative color scheme. Easily the best looking aero bike on the market, and probably the best performing.
