Wicked! If my local shops had a medium in stock I might be on a Propel right now! Great build!

Glad to hear the brakes perform that well! It's still a bit far away but the new wireless SRAM group would be a nice fit, skipping all the cabling. If i may, I highly suggest the new Jagwire Link cables. I have them on both bikes and have been extremely happy with the look and performance. They are also very easy to instal.

That's out of control hot.. straight speed. I didn't see a weight on the Enve bars.. couldn't those drop you below 6.9?


The Enve bars are 240g by my scale. since they also cost $400 and I really like them they will be staying on the bike. I can replace the stem nut with a glue in version that will save a few grams, maybe the odd Ti bolt, Nokon cables, maybe grind some extra material off my Garmin mount but without doing a major change up to the build kit I don't think I will save much more weight. its by far the lightest bike I have ever owned or ridden and I love the way it handles I really don't want to buy a bunch of super light parts over having a solid bike that preforms top notch!

Also already considering the wireless Sram once its available and I have seen some positive reviews, as long as it isn't super heavy.
This current group will go on my other bike a Defy Composite that is built up with 10 speed Campy. link included below...

Yes its the SL1 technically, but the only difference is colour between the SL0 to the SL3. in Canada Giant doesn't offer this bike as a frame set so we had to jump through some hoops to get it and right up until a week before it arrived I thought I was getting the black/blue one, The all black was my first choice though so I am stoked how it worked out!



Awesome they sourced you the SL1 colour scheme. I bought an SL0 late last year and managed to talk the store into frame a swapping for me - probably handy that they were a Giant factory store not just a dealer. The black frame really is the better of the two (albeit not company colours).
