Very nice build rené!! I like it that there is no red in the frame colors, silver is better.

Nice bike.
Are you running those tyres with yellow tape and sealant?
What about overall wheelset performance?

The tires are with yellow tape and sealant.
The overall performance of te set is very good. Specialy when accellerating out of corners.

Awesome design on the frame, the white fork works well with it.

I prefer the specialized. It is a lot stiffer than the Giant.
