The build process however has been less than ideal. I see multiple areas that are going to be really annoying for the life of the bike. Maybe some of you have already found workarounds and this can hopefully be the thread to share them. Here are the issues I'm aware of:
1) brakes: the rear brake specifically (as has been documented) does not adjust well. I did manage to get it centred using the primary centre bolt, and used the spring adjustment bolts to fine tune. However this was all done without the big plastic fairing. Once the fairing is installed, it appears to put pressure on the black adjustment/lever thing which causes major brake rub.
2) more brakes: the black adjustment/lever thing at the calipers does not go easily in and out of it's slot. This is going to be a major problem during a race if I have a flat. This seems to be a design problem. Does that slot work well for anyone?
3) Cable routing front end: why why why didn't Giant use the 5 port junction? Also, I'm positive there is going to be major brake housing and Di2 wire rub/wear due to the routing through the head tube. TBH I am dreading taking that front end apart in order to find some way to cover those cables/wires.
4) Has anyone travelled with this bike? Packing it up in a bike bag seems like it will be impossible. Which bike bag do you use? I have a Shimano Pro bike bag that worked great with all my previous bags but playing around with the front end of the Trinity seems like it should be avoided AT ALL COSTS!
5) Where have you hidden your flat kit?
6) Does anyone go from using race wheels outside to using trainer wheels quite regularly? I think it's going to be a nightmare switching from Carbon pads to regular pads and different rim widths.
To finish, this bike is awesome. Every bike has it's weird quirks. It's clear this bike is built purely for speed and aerodynamics, potentially at the loss of ease of use. I'm ok with that, but I'd love to hear how you all make it work!
