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

Just heard the same thing about a Giant TCR advance so it happens. outside of the inconvenience I am sure it will be made right.

Stuff happens.

There's a thread here about a CAAD10 owner who had an issue with his rear dropout spacing.
Cannondale is supposedly taking care of it right away. Felt just issued a recall for another of
their bikes, so they look like they are honorable players. They'll probably take care of you.

i would imagine building a CF frame is more like making a pinata than machining steel. things are a little less precise in general, and quality control must take up the slack...
