Giant Tcr Advanced 2 - 2010 vs 2011 Model

Hi Folks,

I am interested in purchasing the Giant Tcr Advanced 2 however i am tossing up between which one i should buy, the 2010 or the 2011 model.

Can someone please outline the differences between the 2010 and 2011 models in terms or durability, gearing, components and weight.

2010 Giant TCR Advanced 2 is likely Ultegra (Shimano 6700), since in 2010 there was also a Giant TCR Advanced 3 was 105 (Shimano 5600). The 2011 Giant TCR Advanced 2 is 105 (5700).

If the 2010 Giant TCR Advanced 2 is Ultegra, then I'd take that. If it's 105 (5600) then I'd take the 2011. If both the 2010 and 2011 are 5700, then I'd take which ever was cheaper (if it was significant) and/or which I thought looked cooler.
