Gorgeous as always, another special specialized for the collection! How are those Sram wheels working out? See you went with the Tour edition Red chainset you mentioned.

Wheels are nice they spin nice but were a little sticky for the first 100 miles, I guess just the grease they were made/packed with loosening up as it got hot. Yeah Im pleased I always loved the HTC team colour scheme but I couldnt get one when they were out so I was delighted to find one BNIB. SRAM red Ive had before and I thought it was OK, still prefer DA or Ultegra but its the lightest group out there and I wanted to build a light one as the Venge is a bit lumpy for what it is.

You say the Venge - isn't that the Tarmac?

I almost bought a Roubaix frame last year in that colour way but the Specialized store wouldn't give me a discount so I didn't bother.

My favourite Specialized colour way though.

G R E A T colour matching on the frame, components and wheels. That crank is the piece de resistance.

The cool thing about the colours is you can always say in 4-5 years when HTC has faded into memory that it refers to the jerseys at the TdF.

And to cap it all of, cross-your-heart cables! What's not to love about that?
