New Giro build
Thought i would share a pic and some info on my new Giro. I got a corsa ss a few months, it was a very nice bike but the lack of 650c sized tires bugged me. My ultimate goal was to have a bike I could ride on gravel and still be fairly quick on the street if i put some fast tires on it. So i decided on a new giro 20 frameset and the carbon fork they are putting on the basso. 700 -451 vuelta lite wheelset. Right now it has a 700x35 gravel king on the back and a kenda small block 451-1 3/8 on the front. I think this setup will work good on packed gravel but rough dusty roads i might need something different on the front. Who knows its too cold out to really experiment right now. Drivetrain is all the xo sram stuff off the old corsa, carbon cranks and carbon seat. It weighs right at 24.9 w pedals. A lighter set of tires might bring that down a bit. I had a really good time building it and i finally got to ride it this morning. Its amazing how low the pedals feel compared to the corsa. Its not a bad thing, I felt immediately comfortable on it. Now we just need some warm weather!
