Updated images from Sept. 2011. Now weights 8,4Kg, but is much comfortable and confident on riding and general performance. Waiting for mini i-link and Garmin Edge 500 GPS, so far so good...

It is a rumour that is spread so the popposition use alloy bolts and have them fail in the race giving him an advantage.

I for one would not use aluminium alloy bolts on a stem nor brake discs nor brake calliper nor seat - if those items fail, then the results could get messy and bloody :twisted: . ( but I do have them on gear shifters, brake levers and clamps for gear cables)

Thank you Amaro, it's such a honour to hear that from such a great frame manufacturer like Amaro bikes. Love your atemporal titanium designs, out of trends, that is great.

Yes, that´s a pity...

If you want another rear mech, try Dura Ace because it works with 27 sprocket casetes. As a matter of fact, it works with 32 T casetes as long as you throw in a 10 t upper pulley. :wink:

Nice build! It looks fast standing still.

What is the width of your handlebar? It looks kind of small.

Nice ride. I too am still riding my Giant NRS composite. I just picked up a set of new pivots that should ensure it is good for another five years of riding. Also picked up a 2011 Fox F100 RLC to update the front end too.

nice to hear that. I´m planning to switch to a new frame but not before 2015 for sure, this one is great, not much heavier that a L size frame of nowadays carbon, and fits me very well. The lack of frame sizes now with carbon is kinda akward.
