Building up my dream bike and looking for a way to lighten the 160 gram ISP topper for my Giant. I've seen some carbon cradles online on fleaBay which got me to thinking about contacting a custom fabricator to do an entire topper. Obviously the cost for custom quality work is prohibitive unless there is a group buy so please PM if you are interested in participating and also let me know what your cost ceiling would be. I hope to obtain such a beauty for less than $200 and have it weigh 1/2 of the OEM part.

Regards to all and glad WW is back and running!!

Cheers.

Get me one for my 2015 Defy SL while you're at it. I hate that stupid one bolt design and the thing weighs a ton.

Definitely interested if you can make this a reality. Might have a few teammates interested.

Any update on this? I'm in the process of procuring a Propel Advanced SL. So that makes me interested in getting two of these.

Would be interesting but most attempts with the Giant toppers I've seen so far delete the setback/non setback option which is a nice feature (and make the weight reduction a bit pointless to me)

I'm currently using the non setback option on my TCR Advanced SL, guess that's not much of a problem for me. That topper is really a porker, kind of defeats the weight saved on the ISP.
