    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

    I'm sure others have mentioned, but a lot of mechanics say that proper installment requires a spacer above the stem. I'm not a mechanic though.

    It's acceptable to use a 5mm or smaller spacer.

    Depends on the headset...cannondale says no spacers...the "rules" say if one must be used a 5mm is acceptable.

    There is like 20mm, if it was 5mm or less, it would be OK. The bars don't do it for me, NOT hot.
