Similar experience with my Giant Revolt I have one bike, which is the carbon Giant revolt with the SLR 1 42mm wheelset. I use this bike for both road and gravel and it really does do well in both scenarios, a bit of a swiss army bike.

What did you get your GR300 down to for weight with your current build? I have the same bike and am looking to upgrade the Vision wheels that came on it… would you still recommend the Farsport 30/30’s with DT240 or 350 hubs?

Yeah I completely agree about weight reduction and choosing the right places for it! My current wheels are ~2000kg so going to the farsports with drop 700grams roughly which I am hoping makes a big difference in lateral stiffness.

As a side question, have you had an issues with creaks on the GR? After 200 miles I have a creak when climbing out of saddle that I can’t seem to track down.

P.s. I agree with you on the thru axles, they are the worst I have ever worked with!
