  • Nice looking bike there.

    You'll have to let us know about the wheels. They look great.

    That looks like one of the old Burrows designed seatposts, I had one on my TCR2 from a while back, nice pieces of kit and shame it doesn't suit.

    Nice bike, I like Giant road bikes.

    Lookout for what ? You don't need a new seatpost.

    I think you're supposed to cut the carbon down to fit... your LBS should be able to help with this. Obviously you need to make sure of the fit BEFORE you do this.

    Nice bike BTW :wink:

    Thought the hinges on the sideboard were some addition to the spokes on the front wheel :oops:
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    Not on that one (it's not ISP, it's a separate post, he will need a new one as it can't be lowered any further!)

    If it was mine I'd ditch the aero seatpost and get a normal one. It looks odd with a non-aero seat tube.
    More problems but still living....
