Wow! Test rode Giant Adavanced 3 today. It was little wet out but the bike handles well, felt comfortable and it's pretty fast! I think I found my next century bike!

I pick up the Giant Defy Advanced 2 over Memorial day weekend and am liking it over my 2008 Specialized Allez. The carbon really does smooth out the chatter, the 2 comes with 105 components which are nice. The 3 comes with Tiagra which I here are just OK. I happened to get a 2015 model for a smokin deal from my LBS. Its fast, the gearing is good, very stiff out of the saddle. If you have any questions let me know

it it better than a used Giant TCR Pro?

Reason that I'm asking, is because I'm saving up for a used TCR Pro with Ultegra. 850-950 gets me one in really good condition here in the UK.

I've read many posts on different forums where guys who own more than 1 expensive/good bike, and they say that when they want to smash strava records, they take their TCR
