So as I noted in the teaser thread, back in May the BB shell on my Venge Pro schitt the bed on my trip to NC. Died on the second day of riding, which required me to rent a bike for the last two days.

Anyway, Specialized finally came through with a warranty frame for me....and not only that, upgraded me from the Venge Pro to an S-Works Venge. SCORE!! Paint job is a limited release that was only done sold in Asia, so I don't think I'll find too many bikes like this one around here.

Was hoping to take it out this AM for the usual Tues ./ Thursday hammerfest, but we had big storms rolling through today....gonna take it out at lunch for its maiden voyage.

Decided to dump the Di2 from the last Venge and went back to my mechanical Campag Record 10spd stuff....I just prefer the tactile feel of a mechanical system.

Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Pics!


?? Do you guys not see the pic? I have it on my screen....photobucket doesn't allow 3rd party hosting anymore unless you pay the premium, so I tried to find a workaround. If you guys can't see it, then I need to find another solution...

Nope... the pic is a grey square telling you to upgrade your account to allow 3rd party hosting and directing you to go to photobucket.com/P500

Full spec.....

Specialized S-Works Venge Frame & fork
Zipp 404 Tubular (non-dimpled....old school)
Campag Record derailleurs
Campag Chorus 10 spd Ergopower
Mavic SSC brakes
Specialized S-Works carbon cranks w/ Quarq power meter
Zipp Sprint carbon aero bars
Specialized alloy stem
Shimano pedals
Fizik Arrione saddle

Hot tip - if you have carbon aero bars and only wrap them up to the hoods, try Lizard Skins DSP baseball bat wrap. About half as thick as their bar tape and the perfect length to wrap bars like this....and costs about 1/2 of the bar tape (2 rolls required). I LOVE thin bar tape, so it is perfect for me.

Sweet ride! What does the warning label say, on that seat post Bar tape?
