Maybe with you on it ;)

Hi, here's the race rig with the SRM:

Looks a lot different, doesn't it? ;)

Beautiful.

Wow....!

Very nice Cleave!:thumb:

Man, that came out nice! :thumb:

AzTallRider 04-28-13 05:10 PM

You have great style sense, Cleave...

Red Rider 04-28-13 09:48 PM

Cleave, that bike says "race me, race me!" Good job!

Cleave 04-28-13 10:55 PM

Hi All, thanks for the kind words about the bike. Part of why I love this sport is the equipment. Bikes are just cool piece of machinery and the way we use them to go fast is just plain fun for me.

Propel in training mode (awaiting delivery of the racing wheels). 15lbs 9oz, a bit heavier than the Madone:

AZ, every time you post pictures I always think 'that is one tall dude'. I hope you have many happy miles, looks great.

Hermes 05-06-13 11:40 PM

I like that bike a lot. The fit looks more aggressive than your other bikes.

chasm54 05-07-13 02:05 AM

Quite a drop. You must be pleased to have it at last, AzT

revchuck 05-07-13 03:54 AM

Dang, that came out nice! :thumb:

shovelhd 05-07-13 07:17 AM

Those wheels look like 650's.

Nice ride. Enjoy.

Allegheny Jet 05-07-13 08:01 AM

Nice bike! Giant is somewhat apropriate.

AzTallRider 05-07-13 09:06 AM

It's definitely more aggressive, with a drop of about 6 inches. I'll ride it awhile before I cut the steerer tube. With the greater drop, I think the stock 120mm stem will work fine, and the fitter concurs. I'm playing with the saddle height a bit. Fitter set it to 90cm from BB to saddle top, to ensure I keep my toes down. That causes some issues, even at yesterday's recovery pace, and so I dropped it to what I have evolved to on the TT bike, and the max I've been comfortable with on other bikes: 89cm.

Bike is definitely stiff, and the handling seems quicker than the Madone. Will know more after the practice crit tonight.

Bike = Propel
Rider = Propellant

Cleave 05-07-13 12:16 PM

AzTR, that bike looks very aero -- especially for a big bike. It's also really light for something with that much carbon fiber. I presume your race wheels will be at least 0.5 lbs lighter.

Moving your saddle by 1 cm sounds like a lot. It would be a lot for me, but I am MUCH shorter. I raised the saddle on my TT bike by 4 mm in 2 mm increments over a couple of months. Still not sure if that was a good thing.

Looks like you need to be pretty flexible to reach your water bottle. ;)

Ride fast, ride carefully, have fun!

AzTallRider 05-07-13 02:13 PM

It's. lot easier to reach the bottle with more drop. It's a b**ch reaching down on the Gunnar. A cm is a lot, but it's getting me back closer to where I was. And it's in the range where it feels good, though I may try to ease it up a touch over time. What the fitter wanted was too much of an increase all at once. Knee was complaining...

That's what I meant. :o Not the fact that you moved it down that much. Need to check my posts for clarity. ;)

got it built today. that's why I rode the fixed gear for four hours. I can't read my spreadsheet without my SRM.

Ain't it the truth. On the one I'm having built he is puttting the bottle cage bosses 40mm higher than standard so I can reach down as easily as the little guys...

nice bike. Suddenly I feel fashionable, riding a Giant. That hasn't happened before. On the other hand, mine is six years old...

AzTallRider 05-07-13 02:42 PM

It's the day for Giants... in any color you want so long as it's black. Looks great, G. Love the stealth wheels.

shovelhd 05-07-13 02:43 PM

Nice frame, g.
