Here are several Giants I have built in the past.

I have that 2003 tcr upgraded to sram red as well

how do those newer frames compare to the older one?

Anyone for a little nostalgia?

My Giant TCR c2000. Has since been repainted numerous times. It's a training/backup bike now.


Just put the racing wheels (Mavic Cosmic Carbones 2011) for the photo-op :D

Still loving my 2010 TCR. It's only Shimano 105 but no problems with that other than it's not Di2. Last summer I picked up new wheels (November 58 clinchers).

For the 2013 TCR Composite 0, it says T-600 Carbon Fiber. What does that exactly mean if I compare it to Cannondale's line-up, it looks like it is a step below SuperSix (I've seen the Giant video about the stiffness etc.). I'm interested because I'm seriously considering the 2013 model with the Di2. It looks so cool and I just love the color scheme (ie. @Rob13 Blue and @BarryJoe Blue) and it has a good price comparatively.

My Giant LBS is closing out the 2012 TCR Advanced 0 but I really don't like the color. Looking to test ride one on spring but probably won't get one until the 2014 model comes out (AUg/Sep).

Here's the page with all of Giant's carbon fiber materials and the bikes they are used on (see bottom chart).

It doesn't provide comparisons with other manufacturers carbon, just their own bikes.
If you want the blue in a higher end bike, Giant is coming out with their version of an aero bike in March, the Propel. Lot's of blue on this bike.

Here's my latest acquisition: 2012 Giant TCR Composite 1. As a Defy owner for years, I am looking forward to the aggressive ride this thing has!

Just sold this one, sorry for the "wrong" side picture, honest, I didn't know better!

Sizing is a very personal thing, but I can't see from the picture how you could size down. You want more exposed seat post? Fewer steerer tube spacers? Shorter stem? You are already near the reasonable limits on all of those. Am I missing something? BTW, verrry nice bike.

rpenmanparker 03-16-13 07:01 AM in advance for the wrong sided photo. What was I thinking? This is my own build up of a used 2009 TCR Advanced frame I bought on ebay. As shown in showroom condition = 13.86 lb, with full riding "kit" (pedals, cages, computer and mount) = 14.61 lb. Previously posted in my thread, "Why Not Lighter".

Built up TCR C1 from ebay/amazon/nashbar parts.

Not really qualified to judge bikes with my limited cycling experience, but I really love how it turned out. So much better than my decade old aluminum Trek (nothing against Trek). It makes me want to ride. Can't ask for more than that.

Definitely not as popular as the cult of Caad thread on here but I might be contributing in here versus that thread soon enough!
