[Wheel Upgrade]
A good customer of the store purchased this 2009 Giant Trinity Alliance 1 a few months ago to do some time trials and the occasional triathlon. Fairly quickly, she decided to upgrade the wheels to improve the performance of the bike as well as her times. We built her this wheel set using the newly introduced Edge Composites 1.45 45mm tubular rim previously shown here in the news area. Hubs were DT Swiss 190 with ceramic bearings, and the spokes were DT Aerolite bladed in black. The new wheel set weighed less than 1150 grams and dropped over 2 pounds off the weight of the complete bike!
