Thanks for the complements guys regarding the photos. For those that care, I shoot a Nikon D700, and the lens is a Voigtlander Ultron 40mm f2 SL II. Yep, that's right, manual focus. The Voigtlander renders a cooler colour balance than my other lenses, so it was perfect for this particular autumn/winter shot.
Without having ridden the new bike yet (aside from on the trainer to help set up the bar and shifter position), all I can confirm is that the Yaw front derailleur is quite easy to set up if you follow the official SRAM instruction video on Youtube, and that there is indeed no chain rub even in extreme crosschaining. I recently completely serviced and recabled my Litespeed, so my old Force groupset is running like new and is beautifully smooth - the new Red will have to be something damned special to beat it!
Speaking of my Litespeed, here's a photo. It's a 2000 Tuscany, bought used as a frameset in 2005 and has been in evolution ever since. Just like my new Giant, it's been build out of used parts. The drivetrain, as mentioned before, is SRAM Force from back when SRAM first released its road groupsets. Since I moved to Australia 4 months ago, I've been riding to work instead of buying a car. As I'd left my old Fuji home in New Zealand (to ride when I holiday back there), the Litespeed has become a daily bike - hence the Giant as my new weekend ride.
