Peter Sagan's Specialized Venge ViAS - Gallery

World champion aboard a bare frame to save weight

While he certainly has more ornate options at his disposal, to save the weight of a custom paint job, Peter Sagan is racing a bare carbon Specialized Venge ViAS at this year's Tour de France, where he just won stage 2. But that's not to say that it isn't personalised for one of the peloton's most gregarious figures.

Custom touches include a set of personalised LOOK Keo Blade 2 pedals, a matching Prologo Scratch 2 saddle, Worlds' stripes decals on his Roval wheels, and laser-etched gold anodised derailleur pulleys.

While the look of the bike is certainly pleasing, perhaps more impressive are the fit dimensions of the Slovak cyclist. Despite riding a 56cm frame, thanks to the use of a 14cm stem, Sagan's reach from nose of saddle to centre of bar top is a mind-boggling 62 centimetres!

His seat height is 76.1 centimetres and he spins a set of 172.5mm crank arms. We weren't able to weigh the bike, but only time will tell if the weight saving measures will pay off for the world champion.
