After few Orbea bikes, I decided to have something new. One of my good friend was selling the bike getting a gravel bike so we traded them and we both are quite happy with the decisions.

I went for a trip in Europe just after I got the bike and rode it 1500km around Krakow/Poland and Bergamo/Italy. Amazing handling, feels really fast and even with my rubbish cornering skills, I am quite confident with the frame.

Here is build list;
Giant Propel Advanced SL Frame (Size M, with RideSense sensor)
Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 groupset (50-34 / 11-28)
Vittoria Elusion Nero wheelset and Specialized Roubaix Pro tires
Selle Italia SLR Team Edition carbon saddle, Giant Contact stem (120mm) and Giant SLR handlebar (42cm)
Time xPresso 10 pedals and Arundel Mandible bottle cages.

Weight is around 7250 grams thanks to heavy wheels, tires and the stem. I am really happy with the wheelset but in the near future I'll get a 50-60mm carbon tubulars for fun. Tires will change quite soon and if I can get a bargain about the stem, I'll upgrade it as well.

Here are the photos;
