Now, we don’t really feature much bike stuff here on AJB, but currently myself and Mik are in training for a 840 mile charity cycle ride, so this post seems pretty apt! Bike gurus Specialized have teamed up with F1 world leaders (ish!) McLaren for the S-Works+McLaren Venge.

S-Works McLaren Venge Bicycle

Now, we don’t really feature much bike stuff here on AJB, but currently myself and Mik are in training for a 840 mile charity cycle ride, so this post seems pretty apt! Bike gurus Specialized have teamed up with F1 world leaders (ish!) McLaren for the S-Works+McLaren Venge.

The Carbon fibre Venge is the original brainchild of Chris D’Aluisio, McLaren however didn’t jump on board until 09 / 10 and helped with the final stages of development and testing. The bike it’s self is touted as the ‘world’s fastest UCI-legal road bike‘ and features FACT 12R Carbon, 1 piece bottom bracket / chainstay, internal cabling, FACT 3:1 airfoil fork

The bike took part in it’s first race at the 2011 Milan-San Remo Race last Saturday, and although Mark Cavendish had a puncture which out him well down the field, Team HTC-HighRoad teammate Matt Goss took full advantage of the new bike to win the race.

The Specialized / McLaren Venge will be available to own, with a release expected in the UK during 2011 and later for the US and other markets. Price wise you are going to be parting with around £5K, but it’s a hell of bike!

In the meantime, we are happy to accept a couple of prototypes for testing and our ride ;-)
