Pro:
- Great looking bike
- Good aerodynamics
- very stiff frame, great power transfer
- accurate steering due to big 1 1/4" steerer and steering tube
- racing geometry with long top tube and short wheelbase
- light, but still stiff wheels, although 55 mm high, with DT Swiss hubs, tubeless-ready
- Seatpost with integrated 25 mm/-5 mm setback by turning the crown
- RideSens ANT+ sensor integrated into left chain stay, transmits speed and cadence

Con:
- Brakes need constant maintenance. Difficult to adjust the centering, setting moves with each braking, when brakes are dirty. But still good bite point and braking
- Brakes have wide/narrow rim-setting, but ex works it is set to wide, so no quick on-the-fly adjustment, if one pad is rubbing
- Carbon-dedicated Brake pads with good performance, even in the wet, but are wearing out very fast
- very stiff frame means a harsh ride, nearly no comfort
- DI2 cable entrances poorly sealed
- Matt Orange finish difficult to clean, seems to be magnetic to greasy dirt
- OD2 (1 1/4") steerer means only a limited number of stems, top caps, etc. available

It's the original Giant, but the PRO fits as well and has a better expander. Look for PRO Gap Cap Expander short, Part-No. PRHS0080 for 1 1/4"

Hi Mike Where did you find the 1 1/4" top cap for your steerer?
