    What is Giant in denial about? My 2018 Giant Propel Advanced SL 0 Disc with Enve 5.6 is faster AND lighter than my 2015 S5 with Enves.

    What is the weight/size of each bike?

    They are both size 54. The Propel is 16.1 with pedals, cages, computer mount, timing chip, clinchers w/tubes. The S5 is around 16.5 with everything from before but no computer mount.

    Is 54 what Giant considers a "small" or a "medium"? I ride a 51 S5 with 530mm stack- the small Propel is 529 and medium is 545. I read one review that had a medium at 16.1 lbs, which is really impressive given disc brakes, 65/42 wheel set, power meter, integrated cockpit. Your S5 seems really heavy though? My 51 is 6750g, 14.9lbs, and I didn't put anything lightweight on it. Rotor 3df crank/rings are like 700g, my November Rail 52 wheelset is 1500+, fizik 00 saddle at 130g is the only lightish part...and by today's standards that's not even light, what with Trek selling a 68g saddle.....

    The S5 is a 2012, the rear of a Enve 6.7 set and the front of a 3.4 set, a fairly heavy SMP saddle, a Rotor 3df 54/39, Zipp Vuka Sprint bars, Vittoria EVO CX, Speedplay X1 pedals, Arundel cages, EE brakes, Vrederstein tubes. The Propel is a Medium and has Enve 5.6 w/CK ceramic hubs, Specialized Romin Evo carbon, Arundel cages, Speedplay X1, Ceramic Speed BB and pulley wheels, Continental GP5000, Tubolito tubes.
