    Sweet - I would love me a Warbird! Kind of a stumpy stem and a little high on the spacers, but still hot.

    Funny that you say that... I do find myself schooching my ass back off the saddle when I go into the drops... So I am feeling a little crowded... Maybe a longer stem will help out a bit... I'm not sure about the stack height yet... I am a Clyde at 202# 5'10" so when the gut goes I can probably go lower...

    The bars look like they're pretty shallow in the reach and drop department, too - not that there's anything wrong with that, just keep it in mind as you take your time getting everything sorted out.

    Man, add a pair of in-line brake levers and that would have made a killer city bike for me when I was in BK.

    Seat post looks kinda out of place. The white Giant decal doesn't help.

    The shadow on the stem makes it look matte but it's glossy and matches the seat post quite well along with other glossy accents. Agree with the white sticker. HOT bike!

    Thanks for the feedback gang. This my favorite build yet.

    I love it so far. I've setup both Force and Red22 setups and, aside from the weight, the performance is extremely similar.

    I actually agree with the white sticker as well. Hopefully I can find a Vector seat post with a black Giant logo. I may want to keep a little white in the logo just to tie in with the small white spots on the levers and crankarms.

    I know what you mean by depth of the drop but, what is reach exactly?

    What advantage would the inline brakes deliver? I'm only on the top of the bar when climbing...most of the rest of the time either hoods or drops...I did 5 miles in the drops yesterday as part of my ride...working on my posture.

    thx for the info..

    Reach = how far forward the drops extend. If you switch bars and stem at the same time, you'll want to take both in to account - don't assume reach will be the same.

    For me, in-lines would have been nice in that the few extra inches of height made a noticeable difference in traffic - just a little easier to see over the tops of cars and anticipate, particularly when filtering through slower traffic in Manhattan. If it wasn't a bike that I'd be in traffic with frequently, I wouldn't bother with 'em.
