That's a nice bike and like you, I am partial to Giant. The TCX 2 has pretty much the same drivetrain that came on my '09 Defy 2. With all the bikes and riding that you do, I don't think any bike is really a "downgrade", just slightly different components. I know that a lot of roadies dislike the Sora shifters, but I actually love mine. I was thinking of upgrading them to Tiagra, so all components are the same, but I have gotten so used to them that I think I will stick with them. Plus, I am sure that the weight of the TCX is going to be lighter than the MTB that you already have, so it looks like a win win situation to me. I would go for it. If I had the storage space, I would love to have more than just two bikes. I may end up building another shed in the back yard just for bikes.
