New Giant Roam 0 Hybrid, added a set of Vittoria 700X35C Hyper foldable road tread tires, Cat Eye wireless commputer, tool/saddle bag, seat of my choice. Fine tuned the componets and bike fit to my fit specs and she is good to go. I have put about 60 miles on her so far and the Roam 0 is a sweet riding little Hybrid. The Vittoria tires are great for road riding.

Ride Safe All,
Bill G

Nice looking bike. I cross checked your rear deraileur cable pic with Giant's website and you seem to have a very sharp bend. Does that hinder smooth changes? Maybe an avid rollermajig would improve it even more.

That's a very classy looking bike. I see you have Sammy Slick tires, were they fitted standard? I have them myself and know how light and fast they are.

Very nice I have the 2012 Roam 0 that's the model at the top of the food chain here in the states and I love it. We can not get the XR 1 models here in the United States. Nice ride enjoy...

Ride Safe,

That is a beautiful bike. Is there any immigrations laws that would prevent me from driving to Canada and buying one of these and bringing it back to the US?

I have finally started riding again, after a bit of a slump. Since commuting is not practical at this time, I decided to just ride for fun. Crazy, right? I heard people do this.

My new bike for this is a Trek 7.2 FX, geared up with my old commuting racks, a Brooks B17, and Nashbar Trekking Bars. I am fortunate to have some flat, quiet country roads nearby, and have had some great rides of 8, 15 and 30 miles already. A stem swap and lots of tweaking to the bars and seat have got me pretty comfortable on it.

Looks like a great set-up for some touring.
