Wait, do you mean on the base tape, or do you mean on the *inside* inside?!? I’m confused (and possibly impressed).

Dad: Yeah... well... now his body’s fine, but his mind is gone.

So Christmas came and went in my household and "santa" left me a huge bag of bike goodies to upgrade my 2017 Giant TCR:

Pro Vibe Superlight Aero Handlebars - Wow, these are beautiful. Struggling a bit with the DI2 installation, even though there are pre-installed cable guides, the cables (DI2 and brake) are still quite tight - I think this is down to the strengthed areas in the bars. I did actually pull through one of the guides after it had detacthed itself from the DI2 cable. It was a struggle to get it re-threaded but it's back in place. Just waiting for an extra 500mm DI2 cable to finish off the build.
Ultegra R8050 DI2 gearset upgrade - Upgrade from 105 stock fit. DI2 seems to be a marvel. May decide to upgrade the cranks and brakes in future.
Ti and carbon skewers - 44g down from the 140g stock Giants (First real Weight Weenie purchase)
Dura-ace BB86 Bottom Bracket - Simple upgrade from the Tiagra stock BB. Shaved a few grams off too.
Supakaz Bar Tape - Feels great and looks awesome. Perfect colour match with my bike too.
Hutchinson Galatik Fusion 11 Tubeless Tyres - These will go on my aero racewheels, not fitted yet but looking forward to giving them a spin out. Currently running Schwalbe Pro One V1s on my climbing wheels. They've been ok, but I have had a few punctures that haven't sealed and they're also quite permiable, so I do lose quite a lot of air. So decided to give the Hutchinson a roll.

Will post some pics of the full build, but so far very impressed and I'm hoping to come in less than 7.5kg for the full bike weight, which feels pretty good for a few fairly low cost updates.
