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

2005 Giant TCR2



It was set up for triathlons when i took the picture. Also has reflective tape on the chainstays, fork, and crank since i used it for commuting for a short while before i finally bought a dedicated commuter (a Giant TCX). Currently, it resides on my trainer. The aerobars are handy for getting comfortable when watching a DVD.

You have that saddle pushed back quite far. You must have some confidence in that seat post and those saddle rails.

Hey Psimet - What is the blue thing on the top tube/handlebar in pic three? Some sort of park tool to ensure the bars are lined up correctly**********

Yes. Holds bars straight while you work on the bike. Also seen it used while transporting bikes. Quite handy at times.

This is mine. I believe it's a 2006. Full 9 speed 105 that I hope to soon upgrade to Ultegra SL. Love this bike.



This is my 2005 T-Mobile. I bought it with the intent of building a WW but never got around to it. I've been trying to sell it unsuccessfully so I guess I will just have to build it and ride it.

It's a Park tool that keeps the handlebars from flopping around while you're working on the bike. I got it as a gift and thought it was stupid....until I used it.

Yes the frame is too small for me, but it is setup that way because of certain fit issues. Wish I had a "m" instead of my "s", but it is what it is.

Here's my custom painted 07 Giant TCR C1



Just traded my Ksyrium Elites for these ES's. I honestly liked the way my silver Elites looked more than these ES's but i wanted to shave that nearly 200 grams.

I have access to a laser cutter to cut out my own vinyl decals. I could cut standard looking GIANT logos in white but does anyone have any suggestions?

Just take the decals off your rims and stem, and you'll be all set! All black and pretty, no need for anything else.

I saw a huge improvement when I went from Elites to ES's. You?
