Very nice frame.

From personal experience, the ladies go for a slightly more expensive little black number which they wear once and cast aside.

Is this part of the TriUK sponsorship deal? Or did you have to dip your hand in your pocket, or partially dip it?

Blimey, I can't believe I've even asked this! Rolling Eyes

Very Happy

The wife does know and yes, I guess it was part of my sponsorship deal, but I still had to part with 350 of your earth pounds. Trouble is, I can't wait until next season to race with it!

I thought you were supposed to lose your fashion-sense with age.
Giantman, you're getting faster and using shexier equipment, whats going on!?
It's supposed to be comfort over looks!!!!

Lets have a looksy then.....?

Didn't get time last night but I'll take a digital photo of it tonight before I start building the bike and find a way of showing her off tomorrow. Oh, and your'e wrong Daz. You don't lose your sense of fashion as you get older - you just can't remember what the fashion is!

Sorry Daz, but all the bits are moving across to the new bike and the "old" frame, forks, carbon seat post etc, will soon be the property of your Craig Campion, once his new wheels are delivered from Wiggle.

I've found a photo of the Giant aero frame that I'll happily upload provided that somebody can tell me what I need to do. The photo is on my hard disk at work.

Problem solved. I've posted a photo of my new, lean fighting machine in the "Album" section.

Black and silver.....drool.....my dream bike frame!

You'd better justify it Giantman, because only Batman and the Silver Surfer are cool enough to hop on that!

JMH - No, it exudes quality with smooth welding rather than the fillet jobs you get on the normal OCRs and TCRs. The downtube on the Aero is enormous and the seat tube is teardrop shaped. It just looks soooooo fast! Only hope I can do it justice! The only major differences are the integrated headset and the external brake cabling along the top tube. My present Giant frame has internal brake cabling which certainly makes for a neater job but I have no idea about the relative merits of internal/external cabling in terms of braking efficiency. And Daz, Batman and the Silver Surfer will have to find their own bike. Mine's for keeping!
