Wow! I love that S-Works. I've got an earlier model S-Work which I really like. Never seen one in black though!

OK,

In the spirit of 'I'll show me mine if you show me yours' Since you showed yours.....here's mine: Here a couple of shots of my Giant Trance X0.

Please note the finish details in the second shot: The shiny top area very closely matches the finish on my 19CCD, and the lower portion of the frame is ball-burnished for a matt look.

Weighs in at 24.7 lbs with full XTR. No upgrades.....yet!

Ok, Lew... when you have a bike completely spec'd with XTR, what... exactly, would you upgrade TO?

Nice bike!

Roger

Thanks,

A couple of years ago, I would have added lighter carbon bars and seat post, tubeless rims and tires, and what ever other farkels the shop had available. I really like this one right out of the box, so I just might go the carbon bar route and skip the rest. It's already pretty light and reducing weight from here gets mighty expensive!!!

Ok, in the same spirit, here's MY latest additions! Complete with flashing red and blue lights! They're not XTR, but they're fun!

I actually wouldn't mind being pulled over by a bike cop! Might actually be fun

Actually, we're still getting used to them. We've literally only had them two weeks. Life as a cop from the seat of a bike is very different from life in a patrol car. We aren't using them for daily patrol, mostly special program stuff, but they really are fun. And we get a LOT of good PR with them.

Lew, nice m-bike. I'm not sure I would ever have upgraded but my s-works tires and rims came tubeless right out of the box. Now that I've tried them I would highly recommend going tubeless. I've definitely been spoiled and don't think I would ever go back! BTW put a few ounces of stan's tire and rim sealant in and you'll NEVER have another flat!

Interesting!

I use another product called 'Ride-On'. Been using it in all of my vehicle and motorcycle tires for years. Haven't had a flat yet, but did have a nail and a screw in the Moto tire.......never even know it!

I put this stuff in the MTB tires also......but NOT the road bike. At just under 16lbs., every ounce counts!

I can name a few upgrades to drop a pound or 2. Stans aluminum rotors 59grams each, ZTR tubeless wheelset 1210 grams, NoTubes The Crow tire 370 grams.

my Mtn bike is a Stumpjumper Carbon Pro in limited production nude carbon and gold trim as found on their Tarmac.

Wow! Bike design has come a long way in ten years. Those are amazing and gorgeous bikes!

I took a minute this morning to snap a couple of my bikes. (These two are actually mine, and neither has red and blue flashing lights... ) Neither is as flashy as what you folks have. The first bike, the green and blue one, is the '98 Trek Millenia HT mountain bike frame rebuilt as a commuter/tourer that I just finished, and is all '02 or '03 vintage XT. I have a pretty nicely equipped bike shop in my basement. The second is my stock 1996 GT RTS-2 in LX/XT from the era.
