Giant Riders Unite! Show off your Giant!

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Giant Riders Unite! Show off your Giant!

what didn't you like about those new giant wheels? And what do you see as the benefit from going to the Boyd's.

Depends on the wheels, but the 202fc weigh in at 15.25lbs, size medium.

I just ordered di2 upgrade for the bike, so it should lose another 60g.

I don't ride the 404's that came with the bike, as they are up for sale. If I want to go deeper I have a set of enve 6.7 powertap tubulars. But that adds additional weight.

I rode a TCR advanced sl3 previously with red 22 and it came in at 13.9lbs with reynolds 46 tubalars. But honestly at that weight, the be was begin blown over by a slight gust of wind

What does your weigh?

Mine is Orange and black
The Giant P-A2 wheels though aero they are heavier than the Boyd Vitesse. They do hold speed very well and good against the wind. The Boyd's are light 1500gm and makes the bike feel faster/quicker.
Those P-A2 have to admit look much better on my Felt F5 since it's all black.

It's a normal TCR SLR frameset but they paint it a unique color and only offer it to bike shop employees. We are obligated to keep it for a length of time, write a review, etc...

the industry only thing is fantastic, but one wonders, why would they not offer a bike in that color. as a giant owner, i find some of their decisions on paint choices to be extremely frustrating.

Beautiful bike!

I was after this frame big time because I lost a ton of money recently from bicycle-crash surgery. Apparently it wasn't advertised and it's a choice race-frame for lots of people because it's cheap and supposedly very good.
