    Need some help. I'm looking at the above, used bike. Seems to be a really good deal; however, I'm 60 years (pretty experienced cyclist), and have pretty much ridden endurance road bikes. I'm thinking about getting this bike for the speed/aero. However, I'm not sure how this would work out for me. I've always had Trek bikes.

    Any advice?

    Why would your previous brand matter?
    Your body can't read logos.
    Position, gear ratios - that's what makes a bike rideable/enjoyable or not.
    If you're an experienced cyclist, then I bet that the differences in fit descriptions between your Treks is every bit as big as the change to the Venge.
    Take some measurements off your current favourite. See if you're likely to get comfortable on the Venge.
    Test ride, buy, or not.
    However, if "aero" is important, getting a disc brake bike is a so-so choice. Rim brakes can be more aero than discs.
