    I totally agree & i was the finishing touches that mad me buy the Gaint. I have got some Red Ultremo's on order which
    will emphasise the red touches & bit more. Funds porvided, i may get some white RS30 next year.

    Does anybody know if they do any differnent colour hoods for the tiagra range?? I have seen them for Ultegra shifters.

    Cheers.

  • Are the tiagra hood covers the same size as 105? I have seen Red hood covers for 105 shifters.
    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.
