well god damm--so do you notice a benefit of the Intend stiffmaster headset?

Try the vittoria airliner tire inserts--bit lighter and better bottom out rim protection vs. cushcore.
Also check out Selle SMP saddles--super advanced.

It's a stiff headset for sure. I couldn't tell you if I notice the 10% difference it claims to have, but it's stiff. As far as inserts go, I'm not running Cushcore for bottom out protection, it's more about the sidewall stability and inner tire dampening for me. I'll have to trust you on the Selle SMP saddles, I'm pretty happy with the current Giant saddles I have.

I don't want to make you uncomfortable but that build is sexy as hell. Don't tell my wife!

XL, Alu, Coil, plus cushcore f & r, all under 35 lbs? Hell yeah. As a Giant fan, this a dream bike.

Do you notice the rear brake rub that all the reviews point out?
