434 miles last week, 10,000+ miles since I bought the bike.  This is why I take the time to keep my bike clean…  It’s worth the effort.  A clean bike is a quiet bike.  A quiet bike makes its owner happy.

    Hi Jim, just wondering; any issues with your Venge after 10K miles? Upgrades? My 2009 Roubaix has been practically bullet proof but. I do change the chain around 1 – 2K miles and the cassette every other time. The factory bottom bracket has been the only issue.

      Well, that depends on what you call “issues”. The wheels that came with the bike sucked and were excessively heavy. Those got broomed first. The crank is what I had problems with… it would collect dirt and “clunk” over time. It had to be cleaned every time I rode in wet or damp weather. I upgraded to the S-Works crank, no more dirt collection issues. So, other than that, it runs as quiet as the day I bought it. I would spend the money and buy the bike again if I had to.
