Have the 2022 TCR lineup been spotted?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Has the 2022 TCR lineup been spotted?

I found this by chance when surfing on the internets the other day. Not sure if it's the official lineup for 2022 and/or where exactly since models often vary from places to places around the globe, but it seems like Giant went with SRAM for their electronic groupset this year. Moreover, no DA or Ultegra DI2 seem to be offered. Would have loved to see the new 12 speed DA on one of their bikes.

SL 0 Disc - Unknown (not showing) but there should be one equipped with Red eTap
SL 1 Disc - Force eTap
Pro 0 Disc - Force eTap
Pro 1 Disc - Rival eTap
Pro 2 Disc Ultegra (Mechanical)

I'm curious too if they still have rim brake option.

Could very well be a result of OEM supply issues. I've heard of at least one other manufacturer switching from Shimano to Sram because they could not get Shimano parts to build bikes.

Giant has often swapped between Sram and Shimano. They are not set on either one.

Shimano really does seem to be the week link in the global supply chain

Second link is a month. I haven't heard if that key factory in Malaysia has reopened.

Seems the weak link is Malaysia, not necessarily Shimano. Seems they don't have a choice with their factory and right now Malaysia is failing even more so.

Nice.

Moving away from ugly and back to sexy, like my '06.

... Still with the silly 1.25 steerer? This frameset appears to be missing one.

Nice, rim frame. Awesome. Either TCR or SuperSixx may be in my future for 2022. That is a sexy frame, looks more similar to a Cervelo R3 from 2017 than a 2020 TCR.

Hopefully without ISP though for me.

You can always put in a fork from a lower model with 1.125" steerer.

Local trek dealer said the majority of their 2022 line will be SRAM due to supply issues with Shimano at the present time, specifically mentioned etap replacing di2 for most of the electronic sets in 2022.

I do like several of the Defy Advanced models they're offering. But... pictures are one thing, being able to test ride one in a store is another.
