  • Nice work, think i may have gone for the black Red chainrings though
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles

    I mostly like tan sidewalls, but on this bike they don't do it for me!
    But lovely bike nonetheless, was in my top 2 to buy (the Ultegra di2 versions though), but chose the Rose x-lite six instead!

    Lovely one looks fast, how tall are you ?

    Power meter is Dura-Ace specific, it will look really odd with any other chainrings... :cry:

    Thanks, and it does feel fast! About 2 metres. Usually I go for 2XL, but this one is a perfect fit.

    Got the frameset from Canyon and built it up from there as I had most of the kit, just needed the groupset. It came out really cheap in the end, much cheaper than a full eTap build from Canyon.

    Very nice, liking the gumwall tyres too.

    It's also nice to see another Giant who's bike looks like it has 20" kiddies wheels in it. I have the Aeroad and I'm also 2meters tall and as you the 2xl is a perfect fit.

    Enjoy.

    I was considering the Aeroad at first, but was a bit unsure how I will fit/feel on it, although 2XL Aeroad is almost identical to a XL Ultimate, reach is 5mm longer on the Aeroad. Played it safe and got the Ultimate. No regrets! And there is plenty of room to go lower!

    That's an extremely nice bike - but it is a bike rather than a horse.
