Damn, son, how big are you?


6'4 all legs. That was pre-cut but only 2.75 came off the isp. I run 84ish saddle height with a 10.3 setback. I run the endurance frame to get the shorter tt and tall head tube most importantly. Is a bonus the defy sl is lighter than the tcr sl. It'll be my second defy sl. Had to have the last rabo bike. Great bike. Plus looks v really nice for a 60cm. Eber seen c a60cm roubaix?

The giant bars are nice and light but they have soooooo much reach. Looks like you have it on a 120 stem too. On a long bike. Guess the tcr is a good fit for ya then. Clean bike. Really like the chainrings. ML?

My fair dutch godfather happened to find me a leftover one of these :beerchug: . Is it sacriledge to put Campag on a Giant? Does some fashionista in Taiwan faint at the sight? :noidea:

It's still very much a work in progress, just kinda thrown together at mo w/ DA 9000 chainset but Campag Record running gear and my trusty Neutron tubs on there for the meantime. I can get a 6800 mini group to put on it instead, might just do that even though it'll up the weight a bit, need the Record for another imminent project 8) Syntace F119 stem, PRO vibe carbon compact round bars (but I think I prefer the FSA compact more).

Comes in at 7.1 kgs w/out any weightweenie-ing.

When you mix it with a Dura ace crankset it is!

Fantastic colorscheme :beerchug:

I know, horrid isn't it! 6800 groups going for so cheap right now, but adding 300gr and getting crappier shifting on my best bike just sounds like a bad idea.

I do like the paint, but to be honest, I like yubbers' black and white version even better and + points to him for the orange accents!

Loving that Propel, gosh they look mean....in a good way!
