    Giant TCX

    Ive been riding a redline cross bike a few years old now but its really not mine I just ride it when its available. Im looking at the Giant TCX because I have seen some ads for it and it looks like a nice frame. Does anyone know how much this frame costs? Ive looked on the Giant website and cannot find the price anywhere. Thanks.

    That's the 2005 version; the 2006 is half polished Al and black.
    Have a 2005 frame; rides nice...just wish the legs had a little more in 'em!

    Ok yeah thats what I thought. I think I like the 05 non polished look better. The other kind makes me think of a mirror.

    Not that tricky; I use the downtube bottle cage bolts as reference and grab the downtube there. Took a little practice but other than that, the frame rides nice.

    so you carry rather than shoulder, I suppose it would be MUCH easier to carry than a standard frame, so that offsets the smaller opening. Especially if carrying is your thing.

    Very nice, I almost bought one of those a few weeks ago and I didnt because of this, now I'm wishing I had.
