Reviving the thread of My Custom Camo-fade Giant Propel Advanced Pro

I've had this for about a year now - started out as a 2016 Giant Propel Advanced Pro and I have heavily upgraded and changed different bits and pieces around since then. Now, I am toying with the idea of selling and moving onto something else, or upgrading to to Dura Ace Di2 with a fresh paint job...

Fresh lick of paint, courtesy of 'Chris Custom Design'....


New Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon Exalith...


Built up.....


3T Aeronova carbon bars....


Saddle change....


Picked up a set of Mavic Carbone 40 Elite....


40 Elites fitted + Rotor InPower crank-based power meter and Q-Rings....


Have to be honest, I think I prefer the look of the deeper Exalith wheels.

All in all, it weighs about 7.5kg and now I am stuck on whether I should change to an S-Works Venge/Tarmac, or just upgrade this to Di2 and give it a fresh paint job (candy apple green).

    Unfortunately you can no longer share images from photobucket unless you pay them lots of money. May need to look for another site to host from.
  • I've switched to Imgur - wish i'd done it ages ago, less ads and way faster to load etc.

    It's been a long time since I updated this thread so old pics have been updated and new ones added, courtesy of Imgur.

    P.S. Thanks to 'Oddball1313' for the Imgur suggestion!

    So I toyed with selling this and decided to just upgrade instead.

    - Reynolds Strike SLG 62mm
    - SRAM Red Etap wifli

    The bike feels a million times better. Crisp, reliable shifts and so much stiffer. Wheels catch the wind a little more but they carry speed so much easier.

    What a weapon, and that gold chain rocks.

    Thanks mate, I'm pretty happy with it. 7.3kg as it sits too, surprisingly!
