you have definitely become a better photographer spytech, but this beauty definitely needs a clean backdrop, white or the photog's choice: 18% grey (but take those pedals off for the shoot!, they remind me of a Prince Charles quote, referring to a new building he'd seen: "....a monstrous carbuncle on the face of a dear old friend...."

Spytech is right about the FSA being stiff. I use their pro cranks on my MTB single speed (after having them geared for about 2000miles) and they still kick arse. Just make sure you get a good BB for stiffness as well.

I have heard nothing but good things about the AC BB's. The problem is availability. The ISIS is not available at the moment. Square taper only

spytech. I had a thread with another WW recently. They rejected most of their 2003 ISIS BB's due to tolence's not being tight enough. The best I have heard is April but that was from a LBS. Check their website and email them.

By the way going with your recommendation on the tufo tub/clinchers. Putting them on my 404 clinchers for training

As a Giant-Weenie I think I have to ask if you shouldn't have bought a larger L frame. Use a straight seatpost, one 5 mm spacer an a -6 stem. The result would be a bike that looks much cleaner - no MTB like seat post extension and stuff. The longer toptube would fit you much better.

If you do exclusively time trials/triathlon, well then it's ok.

i have tried the Large frame and it is too big for me, it is 58.5 top tube, i would ride a 58 but i would prefer smaller frame than a larger one. the compact frame in a med. 55.5 in top tube an 130cm stem is a fine ride for me.

i like the synapsi bars, they are heavy not a weight wennie part, but i like the flat top, if your not going to use the aero extention, i would say go for the alanera. i was thinking of getting a more tradition bar, but man i like the bars. my next setup will be sytace f99 with schmolke sl bars, if i choose to change my bars.

No problem. i am glad you got them ok, i have never shipped to germany. post pics of your bike with the FSA superlight cranks.

i might get another giant if i can get the advanced with the integrated seatpost. i can not get it here in USA, but maybe the the NYC giant rep. can get me one.

Just happened to be reading the comments on the AC BB and I must say that I found it to be the flexiest BB Ive ever used. I went with the FSA ti and it was stiffer by far. It surprised me a great deal. Having said that, if anyone wants one I have two I can sell!
I ultimately swithed to Dura Ace with my Campy setup and havent looked back!
