Good to see the bike finally found a new owner after being forever on the for sale pages.
It's build for riding and by doing so you'll find out what works and what doesn't

Hi Sharkman,

Not the most promising comment, but still thanks.
The Tune Skyline ZFS quick release did not work, so I replaced them with AC14. They work well.

Wow. Personally I find it's rare I see a Giant that makes me lust, but that has some real sex appeal - well done sir!

Haha, thanks for all the reply.
The suggestion for carbon chainrings triggered me.
Maybe I will consider Fibre Lyte in the future.

Hi Arthuro,

Welcome to the forum. This is a great bike and a lot of the tuning is already done for you. In your first post you mentioned that the Tune bottle cage isn´t working for you. How come? did you know that with those cages you need to use the conical bottles from Tacx? if the cage then grips to tightly smear some wax on the inside or undo one bolt a bit and mount that part of the cage bit askew.

You made this into a great machine, maybe think about changing out the tubs for something more reasonable for road riding.
