Found out last night they've dropped the frame price on these. Assuming i can get it by Weds, i can't see any reason i won't have it built and ready to roll by Friday this week. Only downside is the Pressfit bottom bracket which isn't my favourite thing in the world. Will probably buy it in Orange today.
Bought in a Large and in Orange...
Looking forward to getting it built up this week
Just bought a BB converter to allow me to run my HTII cranks. Also have a HOPE Headset on my desk that will be going on it.
Debating the cranks configuration but for now will be running 1x10 with a Superstar XCR chainguide until i decide.
Cranks are off the Giant and ready to be fitted. I've swapped out to Singlespeed chainring bolts and running just a 32T middle on this bike. Up to now i'm still using a ramped chainring as it's in transition/testing phase, but will swap to a decent 32T Renthal etc if i stick with this config.
So off to the LBS tomorrow morning to get the headset fitted and discuss the BB options. I've bought the BB Adaptor kit from CRC which allows me to run a standard Shimano HT II bottom bracket as i have an XTR BB here unused and spare. However depending on what the LBS mechanic rekons i may just fit a standard Pressfit BB30 bottom bracket.
The Hope headset is all ready to be installed. I have noticed though that my cranks are silver !!!!! Which i'm not exactly happy about so may have to invest in a set of black cranks lol. Then again, a nice set of orange Raceface cranks may have to go on
