British sprint star Mark Cavendish will start the 2014 Tour de France — in England — aboard a custom-painted Specialized S-Works Venge. After previously riding a 52cm frame, Cav switched to a size 49cm frame and is now using a 140mm stem to get low and long.
Specialized partnered with McLaren for the sparkling paint job, which matches Cav's car, team officials said. Compared to Specialized paint jobs of the past, the logos on this frame are relatively subtle.
Handlebar tape is from Supacaz, the company run by Specialized founder Mike Sinyard's son, Anthony.
