I've taken the carbon wheels off the Giant, although I do have a set that can I use on it as well. With all the crap weather of recent, the alloy wheels are easier to live with. The Giant is awesome to ride.

That is so sweet :shock:

Rochshox, Syncro's kit, and gripshifters. Classic mid 90's mtb. It wouldn't of been cheap in its day. Makes me wish I still had my old Kona Explosif :(

How are the seals on the old Rockshox Mag 21?

Yeah I had 2 Mag 21's and put the best working on there, still hold the air ok, not keen on doing a oil change on these so as soon as they had it I still have the original rigid forks so I will stick them on.

Go into Photo bucket, then click on the photo you want to put on here. Once that photo is open, click it and press ctrl+w and then drag and drop the photo into a 'reply' here.

There should also be some handy link type things on the right of the image with the heading 'Links to Share' which give you the image's link as needed in different forum types (ie. in IMG format - which is what is used here). If you click in the URL box the link will automatically be copied and you can paste it into your post. If you don't have this 'Links to Share' box on the right you can add it from your Settings page I believe.

Two great bikes there. How do they differ in performance?

My cargo bike, I based it on the Bullitt but made it short enough to fit on my ute. I built this from bit and pieces I got from the local recycler. I use it to carry my gear to the local Men's Shed. The upright position from the BMX handle bars makes it comfortable for an old bloke.

I love home built cargo bikes, but yours is a step above the usual finish.

Two thumbs up

Not a whole lot different in most cases, except that the Trek feels more nervous in its handling, while the Giant feels like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class of bicycles, steady as she goes but with hidden talents. You can really hustle it through corners with a lot of confidence, but then you've got one as well, so you'd know what they are like. :)

When you get in the hills, you see the difference. The Trek is over 8kg according to the scale on my Prepstand Pro, the Giant (an SL3) tips in at about 7.6kg according to that with bottle cages on and all that stuff. And of course the gearshifts are way different. The 105 is quite different to the Di2 on the Giant. The Di2 is just click click click and the shifts are very dependable all the time. That helps out of corners too, though me getting better is also part of that.

I haven't really ridden the Trek since I got the Giant. But the Trek has sentimental value, it got me into this whole game when I did my typical jump in the deep end throw caution to the wind approach. You have to remember, before I got into this, I didn't ride a bike since I was a young kid. Didn't really do anything much at all in fact, and by a few years ago I was headed towards 90kg, which is bad. As you can probably guess (and from the avatar), I'm not that weight anymore. :D

The Giant got its first work on it on my part, the black bar tape replacing the white stuff, and the saddle was swapped from the Trek.

Cesscargo: Very tidy construction there - looks extremely well finished. :)

Thanks g-boaf. I have had two Giant TCR's and they seem like good all-rounders, between the lively (but enjoyable) handling of my Felt and the limo ride of my Genesis.

That is awesome. I have been contemplating a similar project. I rode one recently with my daughter in the front and she loved it. I would really like to see the other side so I can see how you have done the steering link. Did you follow any particular plans?

Do a search on Google for cargo bikes, click on images, scroll down the page and the bare frame without the box shows up bright yellow on the page. If you want construction stage photos or any tips let me know, happy to help :-)

I did I lot of looking around on the net for ideas then adapted them for my purposes.

Latest Upgrade for my 2012 CLX3.0 - NEW Mavic Cosmic Carbone 40C Clinchers - Store in Adelaide was lucky to receive these from Mavic as Promo and i was asking a few mates to see if anyone had wheel deals available and these came up just the other day, score the whole set with tyres for $2000 - pretty happy with the price as i seen Pre-Orders starting at $2999 on bike exchange.

One thing i didint know was the decals on the wheels actually reflect - was rather spesh when i dimmed the lights, btw sorry for quality of photos was taking with iPhone 5, hope to do a better photoshoot on weekend with SLR

You will struggle to find more stopping power than DA.

What frame size is your CLX 3?

Matt or gloss paint?

Looks truly beautiful to me I really do like the CLX frame shape............. :D
