philipBer, your Giant is bloody gorgeous! I've said it before but the Shimano hydraulic shifters are so much nicer than SRAM's offering. Pardon my ignorance but how does the quick release work on the front wheel (that's if it is a qr!)?

Thanks mate!

Was in a specialized store some days ago and tested the SRAM hydraulics... no way that I will change to the SRAM stuff... ;)

As for your question, the Giant has QR only at the rear wheel. Up front is a 15mm thru bold axle.

Started out as a Transition Rapture.

Colour is a bit hard to capture. But it's neon-pink with glitter!
