Finally took the giant for its first outing, albeit a very short one - to pick my daughter And friend up from school, then wheeled it back with them. I couldn’t tell if the bars were too short or the stem was too long! Or maybe I just need to get used to the feel of it a bit more. Either way, it’s very fun. Surprisingly quick and feels like it could be quite chuckable. Gears need some tweaking as it was dropping cogs a bit, but that’s to be expected with my rather approximate indexing skills.
I think the stem/bars thing is going to be a little bit of a compromise whatever I do, as I kind of want it to be a dadbike/errandwagon/functional thing but also something I can have fun in the woods with. What I have currently is probably going to be the best for both of those things, but the urge to tinker is strong!
@alexd I couldn't be bothered looking a 1 1/8 quill that worked for me so fitted one of these.
You know what - I don’t actually know if my steerer is 1” or 1 1/8”. I was assuming it was 1” but as I got the stem And frame from @bs7 who had been using them together, Id never needEd to check which. Should probably get the callipers out.
Hi whats the zero setback seatpost, please?
On the Giant? It’s just a Brand X one.
Always in search of non-Thomson zero setbacks. got the brand x on my wife‘s caad
I activated dad-mode just now. Handles nicely with a bulky 2.5yo on the back (human, not canid).
looking awesome dude
Cheers! It’s got mainly stuff from you on it so probably not looking massively different to when you had it :-D
