Picked up today, I know need slamming etc, but happy with how it looks, ultegea 11 speed, decent giant components and internal cabled aero frame for £1650

    Wow that seems cheap! It's the first red one I've seen and I think it looks cool

  • Stunning ! My market got ugly colors for 2015 otherwise I would have moved to Giant myslef with a Propel instead of staying with Specialized.

    What size is that ?

  • Have you had much if a chance to get out on this yet? What's your thoughts on the stock wheels?.

    Nice. I have a 2014 Advanced and have to say the 2015 colour schemes are far far better.

    That will look lush with deep rims, slammed, black bar tape and saddle.

    But that bike at that price? Bargain.

    Thanks for comments, slammed stem now and seat is higher (after bike fit) ddone 300 dry miles on it but thats it till march april now, very nice ride, quite stiff and stable, will have diffent wheels on it next season but to be honest the giant ones are quire nice, not sure whether to go black on seat and bars or just stay white, really happy with bike though.

    If you go black tape, bars, bottle cages and deep rims it'll visually compact the bike up and make it look as mean as fuggery.

    Do it. Do it. Do it now.

  • Great bike, congrats. I have been looking at one of these myself.

    What does the standard bike weigh in at?
