Looks like my GF has just one final decision to make:
The Giant OCR Alliance, or the Giant TCRCW. Both great bikes.
Either way, I'm a bit put out. Where's the learning curve? Where's the "earning your way" to a better bike by proving yourself on a hybrid or mountain bike or something? And since when does someone go out and get a carbon bike with Ultregra components as their first bike? And where, pray tell, is it written that the GF gets to buy a better bike than what I'm riding now?
But hey -- it's fun shopping with her. I get to pretend the bike is for me.
