Here's my new Giant Trinity SL - (bottom of the range model) :(

Only change are the wheels for my cosmic carbones.

  • bottom of the range or not, it's still an awesome looking bike! what were the original wheels on it? :)

    thanks Dr!

    I'm really pleased with the aesthetics :D

    The original wheels were just alloy semi deep rims - not bad wheels but certainly not as light as the mavics.
  • blue black and white suits TT bikes, makes them seem faster lol!

    oh, was just wondering if giant put shallow 30mm rims on!

    nice to see that they come with aero chainset as well!

    p.s. nice bench!

    I had one of those frames, and very good it was/is too. :wink:

  • Stunning looking bike.......and matches my kit too. Bottom of the range or not, I suspect 95+% of people on this forum would love to own/ride it!!!!!

    thanks guys :D

    did a 10m TT this morning (still recovering from a cold too) and knocked 1minute and 3seconds off my previous best time on only my second ride on the bike :D

    I'm only a TT noobie though, 26.35 was my sluggish time compared to most but im pleased with it. :)

    This is a great looking bike, ive been a Giant fan for ages. Ive had my eyes on one of these for a while.
  • That looks really nice.
    It's got some real visual impact, and from riding a similar one a friend owns, I'd suggest it's a very very capable weekend warrior bike. Those tend to handle very well, and are pretty indestructable as well. Very difficult to find anything else even close for the money.
    It's got great stance, and I'm sure with the wheels spinning it only looks that much better again.
