They're the first carbon wheel I've ever ridden, so not a lot to compare them to in that realm. But, I find them to be plenty stiff (more so than my Ksyrium Elites and I'm 6'3" 195-200). They did come in about 75g over advertised weight (totaling ~1750), which was a bit of a downer. Other than the weight and the inability to remove the decals, I like them a lot.

I thought it was ugly.

the geometry is just all wrong.

Not if you're a hipster, then it's all kinds of right.

Too bad the wheels are so heavy and heavier than you were expecting. I wish you could take those decals off, but I fully understand why you aren't trying to take them off if its under the clear coat.

The advertised weight didn't include the decals.

How do you spell "Williams" again?

Rolling billboard, are you sponsored?

I'm partial to Giant, & that's a sexy bike.

Lets see, Williams and Giant, that's two. Too many eh? I like it, looks great!!

Looks good, but not too keen on the ergo bars. Maybe get some tubes with the same stems. I say Hot.

Its not the amount of companies, its the amount of decals/logos.

I'd take it a step further and say that it's not even the number of decals but how visually distracting they are. The frame is not so bad, but the wheel decals are distracting as hell.

Exactly!
12 decals/logos per wheel is a bit extreme.
Giant is know to go overboard on decals, but this one is fine.

I like the bike, but the wheels are far too busy.

Very well...biggest limiting factor is the rider. Plenty stiff for being Giant's entry level carbon. A bit heavy, but then again, so am I.

Apologies for the low-light setting. I'll take better photos at some point. Have at it.

Needs -17 stem for proper hotness, but dang, most beautiful free frame I've ever seen!

Not quite the 700th.

I think the Giant is Hot as well. I don't even mind the wheel logos, but then I've always been on the fringe with that opinion.

I like loud logos too, especially when they are in cursive :thumb:
