Why are you swapping? S is too big for you? This chameleon/flip/flop color is interesting, that thing was popular in car tuning some time ago... But I have to say that I like the red one maybe even more :)
I just prefer the more aggressive geometry of the smaller frame. And yes, the color too. The bike is complete. Final weight with pedals and bottle cages is 14.03 lbs as pictured.
but you don't even have the stem slammed on either... what is more aggressive about an xs then? slightly longer stem?
Usually downsizing brings a higher saddle-to-bar drop, ie. a more aggressive position.

yea i'm just pointing out that it is weird that he hadn't made the old frame as aggressive as he could

Great looking paint and build. Giant usually screw their bikes with awful paint but this one is stunning.
How are the wheels? Have you thought about putting there some tubulars and save 300-400g?

This paint almost swayed me to go for this frameset. Giant’s paint jobs are usually pretty meh, but this is brilliant.

Stunning.. small frames always look so good.

May I ask what you think of new the cosmics? Are they the SL version?

Yes, they are the Cosmic SL UST's set up as tubeless. Wonderful wheels! Super stiff yet comfortable.

Yeah the El Rosado's go well with Chameleon colored bikes. You have the regular or direct mount?
