Get ready for stiff ride in this fully aero machine. Gravel, uneven or broken pavement will be more noticeable while riding this lightweight bike, however, undoubtedly, it's worth it ($$$) to enjoy how the bike easily reaches 30 km/h with less effort. Being an enthusiastic and avid cyclist, I own a Specialized Allez too and oohhhh boy... those 5 or 6 pounds less in the Venge make a lot of difference for those 3 or 4 hours group rides. Keeping up with the Pack at 35~40 clicks per hour is less difficult than before.I sometimes struggle with the Allez while climbing and needed to increase my cadence. Now with the Venge, it seems to be the perfect fit for facing short and hilly roads at lower cadence. Long and steady hills are more enjoyable to go through.On the down side, being a skinny rider (145 pounds), I feel more the impact of crosswinds with the Venge. May be the Roval 45 wheelset I use act as a parachute? Who said you will only get headwinds while riding?. Last thought: Definitely a dream-bike for riders who wants to make their dreams come true at a costly price tag
This bike is noticably faster than my SL3 Tarmac as a result of the aerodynamic properties. It feels like drafting someone half all the time! I would suggest it to anyone who is looking for a competitive edge or to get themselvs the best that is available. Looking forward to the Expert Venge soming which is an afforable retail of $4500!
