2015 Giant Road Bikes - No SRAM?

Notices
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

2015 Giant Road Bikes - No SRAM?

I've been considering getting a new bike later this year and have been anxiously awaiting information on the 2015 Giants. Giant added the 2015 models to their website this last week, but I'm seeing no options for SRAM drive trains. Have they just nor released all the information on modles that will be available for 2015? Did Giant drop SRAM for this year?

Seriously, though, what kind of responses do you expect by asking a bunch of idiots on the internet who don't know anything? Maybe ask your LBS or even Giant themselves?

You realize that some industry people frequent this site, right? I try not to bother my LBS owner on the weekends when she is resting up from busting her ass all week. What I expect is of you don't have the answer to my question, you sit I idly by and say nothing. The internet is kind of a big place and while not everyone will be able to answer my question, I only need one person to reply who is in the know. Congratulations, two posts and you've contributed nothing productive. Shocking that I stopped checking this board much about a year ago because your attitude had become pretty prevalent.

Off the SRAM topic, but Giant, nonetheless-I guess all of the TCR frames are the Advanced now, and there seems to be quite a jump from the 105 spec'd TCR Advanced 2 to the Ultegra TCR Advanced Pro 1. I just bought the '14 TCR Comp 1 and it seems there is not a comparable TCR model anymore, at least not on their website yet. There is a Defy Advanced 1, and it looks sick. I like the idea of discs on these endurance bikes.
