Any pricing news for the ADVANCED PRO 0 AXS in Canada?
I hope its around $7300 CAD (2022 TCR ADVANCED PRO DISC 0 ULTEGRA DI2).
A 2023 Cervelo SOLOIST ULTEGRA DI2 is $8500 CAD.
Advanced Pro 0 AXS is $7,899 CAD. More directly compared to the TCR Pro 0 AXS at $7,699 CAD.

It's a big shame we don't get the Propel Pro 0 Di2 in Canada though.

The new propel and the tcr share geometry 100%? Is it expected that in handling they feel the same bicycle? in M/L

Not exactly because you will be carrying more speed going into the curves/turns with the Propel. :D

I ordered an SL 0, ML, in Canada.

Was just told no MLs are coming to Canada in 2023. Sigh.

not the same. Propel has longer seat tube. Compliance will be a bit different and if you're short legged like me you'll be out of luck to ride it.

Can you please explain/unpack your last comment around seat tube length and why you can't ride it?

Anyone got one of these who can tell me if they'll fit a 30mm tyre?
28 is probably wide enough for my purposes but I may run a 30mm on the WR50s I have.

Install 25mm-labelled tires that will measure 28mm mounted… real width is what matters not what is stamps on the sides.

The website says they can take 30mm, doubt you'd find someone who has done it. Not saying you can't or shouldn't, but it sort of defeats the purpose.

The WR50 are 25int 32ext.
A 28 is good on the front but might use a 30 on the rear if it fits.

28 on a 25/32 is likely the best choice on the front.
I have ENVe 4.5 with the same dimensions, and a 30 STR is close to 33mm on it. 28s are just over 30mm. Can be run at super low pressure.
Specialized SW Æthos (2021) 6.1kg
Specialized SW Crux (2022) 7.2kg
Specialized SW Tarmac (2022) 7.1kg
Cervelo P5 Disc (2021) 9.1kg

*all weights are race ready bikes, large frame size.

I spoke to two Giant stores, Giant Toronto & Giant Vaughan (suburb of Toronto).
One dealer gave me price quotes & the other dealer had no info!
Can you pre-order in Canada??

Check out the bike with Di2 and Cadex latest 50mm Carbon wheelset with 28mm tyres. Could easily fit ina 30mm tyre and probably you will be reaching the limit at 32mm(+/-)......I'm referring to actual measurement.....we all knows some brands pf 30mm tyres on a 21-23mm innner width rim will inflate close to 31-32mm

Yeah, dealer orders were due two weeks ago.

I'm cautiously optimistic there will be more available late-summer 2023 based on a few Ginats repeating the same info to me.
