Yep, it's a skeletor. These things are unreal.

Bomber aluminium frame and edge/enve fork for a very good price.

He's now got a BB30, model called the Havocstaff that's about to come out of production.

(AT) Mezla: I think some think the colour is a little out there. One irridiscent purple frame is enough no?

airedale, I've found a couple of candidates for your next bike.
One with a nice boring neutral coloured frame:

And one with a little splash of yellow:

I have seen a similar bike being raced at Lansdowne?

Any chance that people can post pictures they've take of the bikes they actually own?

Otherwise I'm flooding this topic with pics of the Venge that I've ripped off from the Specialzed website!

Not a mad carbon fibre bike like the other beauties in this thread, but I installed my SS Tubus Cosmo rear rack a couple of weeks ago and just installed my new B17 Imperial this morning and wanted to show it off. This is now my shopping/utility bike, I have a pair of red/black Ortleib Back Roller Plus pannier bags to go with it. Still need to get some proper mudguards, but no major rush as it is now coming into summer and there wont be many wet days ahead (apart form today).

Hopefully I'll have the Raleigh ready for action in the next couple of weeks.

My LBS has a Venge in it's display window. It says Gggrrrr every time I walk in and my Tarmac gringes and tucks its' tail between its' seat stays.

Have you seen any Kuota road bikes? There's a LBS down the Gold Coast that stocks them. Some of the models are similar to the Venge and look sweet.

Thanks. :)

It's crazy though, the accessories on that bike combined are worth more than the bike.

It recently developed a weird knocking sound from the BB/crank area that I need to sort out soon, as it can't be good. Started when I started to use the panniers to haul shopping around. The bike isn't really suited for this purpose, it's more for cruising along the river paths.

Square taper BB elStado?

Tighten the crank bolts sooner rather than later or they'll be suitable for beer can production and nothing else.
Hopefully that'll fix it. *xfingers*

That's what I thought too when I opened the box, but turns out to be pretty comfy saddle. It flexes so much

Thanks mate, compared to the big boys, FUJI is pretty humble i guess :)

What's that seatpost baralah? Might just do the trick to centre my Swallow Ti on the rails...

That guy's an animal. It was way to fast for me. First race in about six weeks, I was hoping to dip my toe in the shallow end, but with him and TurboStudio at the front, the elastic snapped way to early.
