The original battery, no longer holding its capacity, is rated at 700 mAh. This new one is rated at 600 mAh, which calculated 85% of capacity from the original but still better than what the old battery is capable of currently (lasts for 8hrs at best). I tried finding a 700 mAh that would be pre-wired but searches came up empty, which is frustrating.


I thought you just sent it to the factory and they did an exchange. If this is a DIY project please post instructions and pictures please! :thumbup:

Sweet, please post it in the Gallery. We don't often see Giants with Campagnolo.

A house, which means you'll probably never see me posting on this thread again.

New bar tape. Haven't had a chance to ride with it yet. Initial feel is great though.

Least you got to buy it yourself.
My wife came home one day and told me "oh by the way, I saw a really nice house today, and bought it". Seriously.

Haha thanks for the comments guys. I do intend to turn one of the rooms into my own "servizio corse", so I'll be sure to post pics of that in time...

I came home one day and found the pelmets my wife "had to have" 12 months earlier, now in a nice pile on the drive way for the verge clean up!

She decided they were no longer in vogue.

I got her back by buying a TT bike.

She got me back by inviting her mother over.

Pair of 2013 Mavic Zxellium's size 42 for a steal of a deal. Currently have a pair of Sidi Wire's 42.5 that I do like but always like trying something new and Mavic is one of the few major shoe companies I haven't tried. (Tried Shimano R320, Bont Vaypor, Spec Sworks, Gaerne Chrono, Giro Prolight SLX)

*not my photo, just needed a stock one since I don't actually have the shoes yet...*
