    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.

    Last week I finally gave up on finding a 54cm TCR SLR. I know it's a stiff frame, does it liquify your insides?

    Auckland traffic is far from the worst in the world. But, even here, I would value inline levers if I was commuting on a regular basis. Fingers wrapped around the outside of the hoods or the drops makes them the first point of contact. I would much prefer having something between my hand and the car. I was out riding with a friend last weekend who runs bar ends on his MTB commuter rig for no other purpose than as urban Bash Guards.

    A most serious tire mounting faux pas. If you were to mount them identincally, you would be able to keep the valve stems align in either the upper or lower position and read both Schwalbe and the model in upright script. tsk, tsk, (suck in through teeth)

    It looks tall 61cm or 63cm? If it were shorter it would be warmer. Any chance of a surgical shortening in your future?

    And it shows. But, it does present well for such a tall frame. You've done an excellent job of disguising the giant.
