    To be honest i had fears that my heel may get caught on the stand as it does stick out a bit but had no problems on a short 4 mile ride the other day so phew!
    It does seem sturdy yes but as yet, not tested it on any slopes.
    I preferred this one from the Ursus Wave that Giant suggested. ( http://jumpsport.sk/produkt/106922/stojanek-kickstand-ursus-wave-r81-blk-rear-mount-2-bolts) as it doesn't seem so strong. The one i have came from 'Wildoo' http://www.wildoo.co.uk/shop/pletscher-comp18-flex-rear-kickstand/
    I think it's a bit cheaper after you send it to basket £18 IIRC But this on is listed as supporting upto 50 KG.

    Edit: If you go for the Pletscher from Wildoo send him a quick email requesting M6 x 20 screws as mine came with M5 screws. I sent him an email about this as in the add it's saying comes with M6 screws. He did want to send me a couple of screws but i just popped down to Toolstation near me and bought 50 A2 stainless for about £3.

    I had to replace my screen for a new one (the replacement loom comes with the red connector) after I had water ingress and the display just wouldn't switch on.
    Giant were very good about it, no hassle. one call to the dealer explaining the problem and two days later I had a brand new MKII display.

    Thanks for the links "site pin" I'll take a look at those later.

    Picked up a 2018 UK model on Monday. It is one of a batch shipped in early January.

    The frame has changed. Bottle bosses are missing, Rear stay redesigned so no bosses for a rack.

    Very disappointed

    Hi & welcome to the forum.
    I didn't notice the "bosses" absence in the add pics. How does it ride?

    Now, I am debating getting this bike or the Trek crossrip +.
    IMHO, Trek rode slightly better. Do you guys have experience with that bike (not sure it is available in Europe)?
    I have also tried Giant Quick E+ - it is nice but a bit too bulky (you can really feel the extra 5 pounds on that bike).
    BTW, they have a new Road E+ (at least in the US) with an upgraded computer. It adds two extra level of assist (eco+ and normal+).
    I test rode it but I am not sure whether this is worth the extra $200 they are asking.

    Bloody hell. Giant must have handed over design matters to the resident moron.

    Gordon Bennett.

    Yet another case of an organisation bolloxing up its own designs.
