I would be concerned about the fitting if you have not tried one. You want to be sure to get the correct size. Also I think you will not like the racing seat.Steve, it is critical I can collect (and pay for) the bike tomorrow, which is Thursday. It is because I will travel to Cracow this Friday, have a birthday party with Kalon (and Banshee), then set to a hilly ride for 50 km on Saturday. The dealer is good (and he needs the money); still, it is not in his hands but in the hands of the Giant distributor. I would be weeping if it turned out the bike were unavailable. In such case, no bike purchase until the 2021 season starting in Autumn 2020. Since my Vado wouldn't be released from service by Friday, I might take the Lovelec, which is not a climber but what else to do?
Bad times indeed.
