So, first world problem annoyance, but on these it annoys me the fork spacers for the stem..........the bolt countersinks aren't perfectly round. So the bolt heads don't seat right from the factory. They loosen and fall out. I bought replacements and blue loctite, the removable kind.........but still. C'mon.....

Has anyone tried putting 28c GP5000's on the bike? I know they'll fit on the front fork, but I was wondering if there's enough clearance in the rear.

Bonus points if you are running a set of HED's belgium/ardennes/jets.

I just picked up my 2017 Advanced Pro from the bike shop where I paid to have Di2 installed. I provided the schematics from the GIANT manual on how to route Di2 cables and the required lengths and asked them to route the wires internally as shown. When I went to pick up my bike today, this is what I got back. The tech said that he tried to route the cable internally through the handlebars and the stem, but that there was no way to get the cable back to the bento box, so he did it as shown below. From everything I've seen, I thought that there was a way to route the Di2 cables through the aerobar, around the neck and below the stem and up into the bento box. Could anyone tell me or provide a photo of how you were able internally route the Di2 cable? I'm happy that Di2 works on my bike, I just thought it was going to look like the other Trinitys that I saw.

There should be a junction box under the risers on the headtube of the stem. Some of the extensions and brake shifter wires go to that with one somewhere inline with the Bluetooth thingy.

From there, a wire goes thru the oval hole in the frame that is at the top behind the metal headtube spacers on the fork. From inside there it pops back up thru the hole by the bento at the junction with the button on it.

Not even cables in the stem per se. Its all behind the metal stack fork spacer things.

Don't have any advice, but I'd be frustrated if that was my bike. Why didn't he send the wires through the bar ends? Did he creat a hole in the side of the bar?

Hope you get it resolved. Was the mech an experienced one? Did he pass it off on someone else?

Thanks, that makes sense now that I look at the bike and watch some videos online of Di2 installation on the Trinity Pro.

It's a pain to do, but the wire for each extension goes thru that hole that's on each side of the little aero stack spacers where they meet the basebar. From there they go inside the basebar to the center mounting point for the basebar and out the bottom of the basebar towards that front headtube area to meetup with the jn box. Forgot to mention that part if you redo it.

I had mine 100% apart in that area to install my Carbonwasp bars and for what you have there you could do it yourself if you had to. I would assume the hard part is whatever is coming up from the downtube to meet that button j-box in the bento. The stuff from the basebar/extension/brake area IMO when I've done it is about a 15-20min job.

The shifters make most of the journey in the base bars? If they at least make it to the first hole near the stack spacers you can use a longer o-ring style "pick" to pull it the rest of the way into the basebar and out the bottom center to the headtube front.

No idea but do know the "giant bike parts spares" website sells it as a whole "UCI upgrade kit" including fork, basebar, stem.

That would lead me to believe the answer is you cannot. I bet the fork's steerer metal piece is a different height for the same frame size fork.

Yes its a different hight, the Tri steem uses 2 bolts and the UCI one. But the fork is cutted at the factory "Giant" told me so its possible to cut it once more. But also heard that the UCI fork have different angle (?) compared to the Tri fork. Hence the Q if someone have dared to try and hack it.

A 25mm isn't even close to causing problems. 26mm should be fine. But I have to ask, in terms of CRR and aero, why a 26mm tire? I cannot think of a 26mm tire I would run in training or racing for multisport or for single sport time trial.

If you're buying those tires, I'd be curious what they are and why versus just going GP5000/Vittoria/Michelin TT tires. The Specialized and Pirelli's are on down the list of CRR, and I don't see any real benefit to using them over the other offerings that are in 25mm.

Good question. I have always used conti 4000's (clinchers) but have slowly migrated over to tubeless. I have a set of Conti 5000's (TR) on my current race wheels (disc + 60mm front) but I am doubtful they will make the transition to my other set of rims. Used tires are so bad in my experience to reinstall tubeless, so I already have a 26mm S-works at home (new). I will attempt the conti's but if it's unsuccessful I will go with the s-works.

Not sure how scientific/reliable this study was but I used this chart.

See if this works. I changed the bars to Drag2zero so they were too long for me to route the wires through the basebar - stem - toptube. That is is the cleanest setup so I have the two wires coming over the top of the stem. Still pretty clean.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
