My very first “not–so-close encounter” with the Giro, during Interbike 2001, had me “looking at” but not really “seeing” this bike. Sure, the Giro did look pretty good as it meekly posed on its display stand. But I guess I must’ve felt that this bike wasn’t new or different enough to command my full attention. After all, this was Interbike and I was on a mission to discover new and weird things of the bent kind.
