Hi all,

I am pleased to introduce my new XS Giant Propel Advanced SL 0, pretty much standard out of the box.

Only changes were saddle, tyres, bar tape, cables and different bar/stem size. See specs below. I haven't stripped and weighed so only have total sorry (7.153kg).

Frame - Giant Propel SL 0 XS
Fork - Giant Propel
hanger -
Headset - FSA Integrated
seatpost clamp - none (ISP)
Seatpost - Giant Integrated ISP (Ti clamp bolt)
Seat - Selle Italia SLR Team recovered
Stem - Giant Contact SLR Aero Integrated (110 x 42)
Bar - Giant Contact SLR Aero Integrated (110 x 42)
Bartape - Fizik
bottle cages and hardware - Giant Gateway carbon
Outer Cables - Shimano
Inner Cables - Shimano
Brakes - Giant (TRP) mini V
Front derailleur - Shimano Dura Ace 9070
Rear derailleur - Shimano Dura Ace 9070 (Aerozine jockey wheels)
Crankset - Shimano Dura Ace 9070
Bottom Bracket - Shimano Dura Ace 9070
Chainrings - Shimano Dura Ace 9070
Chainring bolts - Shimano Dura Ace 9070
Chain - Shimano Dura Ace 9070
Shifters - Shimano Dura Ace 9070
Cassette - Shimano Dura Ace 9070
Wheels: - Zipp 404 Firecrest Clincher
hubs -
Spokes -
Rims -
Skewers - Aerozine Ti
Inntertubes - ?
Tires - Continental GP4000s 700 x 25c
Pedals - Look Keo 2 Max
Polar/garmin/computer mounts - Giant Integrated mount, Garmon Edge 500
Tape/glue - Zipp rim tape

Any quick and easy ideas to get to below 7kg would be much appreciated. I want to stick with the major parts (wheels, groupset etc) so am thinking bar/stem, pedals, tyres/tubes etc for smaller but easier gains. I have a set of Crmo Speedplay zeros that I can swap the spindles out on and swap out. I haven't done the Ti bolt swap out yet but think I can gain quite a bit with the above changes.

Hope you enjoy, I also picked up a Trance Advanced 0 and will post pics soon (if you haven't already guessed, I now work for the big 'G' so expect more bikes and pics as the new season goods get released!).

ti upgrade kit for the pedals (a la ebay) would drop a bit of weight. Been thinking about doing it with my own set.

amazing looking bike, mean and LOW!

there are also lighter tires, bar tape, and (probably depending on what you have) tubes, that wouldnt see any sacrifice in performance.

agreed... not usually a fan of stuff made by spesh, trek, cannondale or giant. but this along with a few dales ive seen recently are looking pretty spectacular and less 'run of the mill'.

treks, however, are still the most boring bikes on the planet.

@Quinn039 - yeah, my thoughts as well. Guess I just wanted confirmation I was heading in right direction. I have ordered the Ward spindles so will see what that drops. Tyres and tubes will be next and I will re-assess from there.

@loudtiger - certainly feels fast! Waaayyyyy faster than I will ever be! Have raced it a couple of times and goes really well, haven't really given a full crack in the sprint but hope to get the chance soon.

@bomber - cheers bro, have you posted your new stable addition yet?
