Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Set this up with aluminum campy CX 11s parts (chorus shifters), pacenti rims/CX Ray/Industry nine hubs, avd bb7 road sl, conti cyclocross speed 35c tires with latex tubes. Fantastic bike, I'd never been able to beat the guys on CX bikes on the local gravel roads and trails on either my road bike or my MTB, on this bike I have 21 Strava KOMs in the first 500km of riding. That says it all.

Update: after a season of riding, I still love this bike. I think eventually everyone will probably move to thru axles for both road and cx discs. There is some flex because of using QR instead of thru axle on this frame. Other than the occasional rotor ping when standing and hammering up short steep rises, there is no other symptom and it's not objectionable. Still a solid five star purchase as far as I'm concerned.

I think that like saddle fit, helmet fit is clearly a very individual thing.

This helmet, for me, is the most uncomfortable helmet I've ever tried. I have a 58cm noggin and the helmet is a size medium. For me, the foam at the front of the helmet instantly digs into my forehead and is instantly painful, even having it on for a few minutes leaves impressions in my forehead. It's not so much that the helmet is too small, I can stuff additional padding in there and it helps, but no extra padding is provided (what's there is very minimal ~1-2mm thick strips). I've tried contacting Giro to see if they have any extra padding kits etc or can offer suggestions but they did not reply. So a big thumbs down from me on this one.

I would recommend trying one first hand in a store before placing an order, if you have anyone in your area that stocks these. If your head has the same problem as mine does with this helmet you will know it instantly!
