My new giant omnium track bike arrived today. Will build it up and post picture later in the week
Thank you. It is even scarier when it lights up...
Here's mine in the snow...
It's a 2010 Trance, spring Rock Shox forks custom sprung for my weight, rear shock custom valved for my weight, Shimmy 540's, mix of XT, SLX and Deore components, Ritchey headset, outer chain ring removed so it's 2 x 9 with a slightly wider range SRAM cassette and CNC rings, SRAM X9 front mech, carbon post of indeterminate source, some forged stem or other, 700mm bars, Hope clamp and Ti skewers. It's changed a bit since then, but it's still here, still my favourite all-round use full squidger.
I've got one of those, same saddle on it as well.
Giant ommium track bike
Since last nights session, a few adjustments to saddle height and stem have been made. Also ordered new tyres as the schwalbe skids are utter crap
They are really good bikes
Ready for action...
How are you finding it?
Loving it !
I thought it might be too "racy" or uncomfortable after riding a Defy, but it isn't. Put in a 111km ride in October with ease. I popped Shimano RS10 wheels on it with 25mm tyres and ended up going back to the stock wheels & tyres as they were more comfy, and about the same weight. The bike is very well put together.
@Arjimlad : I ride my wife's Defy now and then and I really like it. It's interesting to hear from someone who moved from one to the other. I do find the TCR position is a smidge more stretched out, but not hugely so, and they're both great. Have fun!
