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

Giant TCR Composite Frames on Ebay

So, while searching for a cheap carbon frame to build up a back up bike, I came across these Giant TCR Composite frames. Price seems to good to be true, but the shape and design seems to match, not the colors though. My question is, are they authentic frames?

Does your buddy's frame has the "RideSense-ready" on the inside of the chain stay?

Both the box and the frame are definitely fakes. The TCR doesn't have a curved top tube:
