I know the Profile Design F35i's won't work (plastic). There's another thread that says the alum ones should fit. It also looks like Profile Design's F40 or F40TT's should work. All those pads are >100 mm wide.
The F40 (to be renamed Boom) is basically a pad with the extender built in. Hence the alloy construction.
If you place these in the widest setting (the top set of holes with the way the image is oriented) the outer edge of the pads will be at 291mm, vs 275mm for the stock pads. You get a lot more granularity for reach and width adjustment too.

Travel - I use the Scicon Tri Specific bag and can have the bike packed in under 5 mins; only requires taking the wheels off.
Puncture kit - I used a plastic cylinder tool kit thingy and place it either in my jersey pocket on longer rides or rear bottle cage (mounted behind seat) on shorter rides. For races I tape CafeLatex to top tube.

I removed the crankset and took some pictures:
Has this happened to anybody? How did you fix it?
1st post as i've only just found this forum :) . Before Christmas I picked up my Trinity "TT Edition" on eBay. She's got a few sexy parts and was priced well.
Searching the internet i've really struggled to find information on the bike so I was glad when a google search turned up this thread.
I'm traditionally a short distance triathlete. So far i've done 3 duathlons on this bike and i'm impressed. It's my 1st proper TT bike.
The reason for my post is a question. I've entered a 70.3 in France this year and I want to add extra hydration / storage onto the bike. I'm struggling for information on if I can fit the Tri spec bike bento box and front hydrayion box. Does anybody know? If not what would be the best front mounted drinks system to use?
Oh, 2nd question. I have the frame number, if there anywhere I can look this up to see what year the bike is?
I am not sure about the difference between the two models, but the front bottle bolts up as well. You may need a few different pieces to get that to bolt up as well.
Could you post pics of the front end? I could composer it to mine and let you know.
Since it the black paint, I'd assume it's either 2016 or 2017.

I've got the front end apart as i'm servicing the brakes and going to replace the cable running to the rear.
Looks like the bento might fit but I I fear I may need a new stem (hopefully not too expensive) and forks (probably very expensive) :( . All of that would make the job pointless and i'll look for an alternative solution.
This the latest bento? http://www.giantbikespares.com/...oduct_detail/3-42956
Thank you. I'm pleased with how she looks, that's the main thing ;)
That all looks exactly the same as the TT version.
Of course, your fork is different, but everything bolts up to that nose piece, so the fork does not matter.
And yes...that is the latest version of the bento. The previous one was utter crap. If you can also source the new front bottle, then the bento will fit it perfectly, better than the dsw. If you are unable to get the front bottle and use some nonspecific bottle up the, the dsw would work great. (While the new, split-top giant bento is better, the zippered dsw is better yet.)
The bottle here: http://www.giantbikespares.com/...oduct_detail/3-43132 looks like the old version, but hard to tell in that tiny pic.
The old one has a smooth bottom.
The new one has a notch on the bottom and an additional piece that slides onto that notch.
I can get pics of all this if it helps.
