Longtermers: Alex Ballinger’s Giant Trinity Advanced 

Next in our series of staff bikes, CW digital news writer Alex learns how to build a bike the hard way 

My Giant Trinity is newer than the other ‘longtermers’ that have appeared on these pages so far. The product of a lockdown project, I raced it throughout the summer months last year, including to a time of 20.34 at the National 10 mile time trial. I’ll race it throughout 2021 too, and have a few spec changes in mind. 

I spent several months foraging for the ingredients I needed to cook up my dream time trial bike, all based around the familiar curves of the Giant Trinity Advanced frame and the allegedly rapid Cadex aero wheelset.
