What do you have against ENVE?

Purely visual, the products look dated rather than timeless , how to take your bike back half a decade ..minimum

I can appreciate that paint job, but there's something off about the silhouette, standover maybe, fork offset maybe, shock position maybe. Something about it makes me question if it will ever actually be ridden on dirt? Cool garage decor though.

I am 100% into this. I don't think you can ever go wrong with a black frame and polished parts.

I like that bike a lot but would look way better with black fork legs IMO.

As for the ENVE wheels I do see what you are saying. They have stayed with that same tri pattern design for a really long time and now that you say it it does look dated. I have a set of the AM 30's and I do think they look a lot better.

I've seen more photos of AB rings singing flat than any other ring Wink

Enve needs to drop down to just one logo sticker and make it 3/4 the size of the current ones. Then they won't look dated. But them everyone won't instantly know you run Enve.

Yes, that’s significantly better. Can’t stand ‘shouty’ for at least 12months of the year lol I’ve seen some really good custom ones that are both appealing & unique.
Largely, I think the enve monopoly on wheels at the time made them somewhat ubiquitous for many, most certainly myself , appearing on many unimaginative builds, where the wheels, no matter how good, just didn’t suit the bikes actual build . Not an issue now thank f*ck, but still you see an anomaly (rizzo - in this instance) coming in from another antiquated Enve timeline on some cyclic loop
