Two seasons in and I felt that I should showcase my TCX and let me people know of my experience with Giant, SRAM, Paul, and the rest of the components. I'm in my second season of 'cross racing, with some good top 10 finishes in C this year, and the bike has been nothing short of reliable, infallible even.
Built last fall, I was hoping for the best with my choice of components as my budget is non-existent and replacements or upgrades would not be possible, heck they still are the stuff dreams are made. Fortunately nothing so far has needed to be replaced or upgraded.
The SRAM group has been excellent, this year I went to a single ring front, and thrown chains are a thing of seasons past. Paul Component brakes front and rear, again, perfect in nearly all conditions. The Time ATAC XS pedals, also rad. They never seem to get too clogged to clip me in, and I have them dialed perfectly for dismounts.
The one upgrade I did make was move from an older set of Mavic Ksyriums to HED C2 rims laced to DT Swiss Hubs. I was immediately blown away by the quality of the bearings, spin spin spin spin, and the stability the wider track C2s provided.
So if you're thinking about going racing, and thinking about having only one bike to train, race, and then ride on the road the other 8 months of the year, do consider a TCX. It has been my only bike, and two race seasons and one long off season of training on the road have passed, and thankfully, and happily, there have been zero issues to date.
