Hi all, this is my custom 2014 Giant Propel Advance SL. My goal was to make it come in at 6.8kg and I got it to 6.95kg with Garmin 810 and pedals on the first try,

Front derailleur - Sram red 22

I had to make my own out front mount for the 810 since nothing on the market will fit enve aero bars here are some pics of it, I banged it off in an afternoon and its not pretty but it works really well and is solid, also weighs 39g

Sweet ride. How do you like the bars? I considered them for my bianchi but decided on a more traditional bar. They look good on the propel.

I really like them, it was a toss up between these and the regular enve compact drop, I am happy with my choice.

Best looking giant I've ever seen! :beerchug: The color coordination on that thing is stellar. You've really outdone yourself. Also as much as everybody likes to rag on the giant carbon stem I think it looks great in the this application.

Love this Giant. Almost non-visible decals on Easton wheels is nice touch as well. It suits the frame quite nicely. That thing really looks fast!

Everything lovely.

Just don't like the handlebar profile :(

But it's a racing machine, no doubt!

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!

I'm not usually a fan of many aero frames but this one looks the business! Very nice build and glad everything worked out for you with the color scheme. Personally, the jury is still out regarding how I feel about the brakes. The cable routing for them is probably the one thing that I notice. Either way - looks awesome!

The brakes work really well, maybe too well I have to be super careful not to touch them too hard or I am skidding. I don't mind the cable routing for the brakes so much but the shifter cable routing is terrible as its designed for electric, I will be upgrading to Nokon housing pretty quick I think.

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?
