I ordered this bike and October and finally picked it up yesterday.

I'm 6' and the bike is a size M/L. So far the fit seems pretty good.

Some 'before' pictures:

    Here are the wheel details:
    - HED Belgium Plus 32 hole rims
    - White Industries CLD black
    - Sapim Race black spokes, 3 cross
    - Sapim brass black nipples
    - Shimano RT99 140mm rotors

    If you're looking for custom wheels in the GTA, I had a very positive experience with Corey Wood at Urbane Cyclist.

    The tires are Continental 4 Season 28mm, and there's plenty of clearance for bigger.

    Looking forward to first ride tomorrow!

    Looks good, very long wait time mind you.

    I enquired about one of these a few weeks back at a Giant Store and was told that they are going to have to wait until the 2016 model comes out, a difficult model to find/buy.
    The path of my life is strewn with cowpats from the devil's own satanic herd.
