Hello Hello

Stoo here, Northampton based.

Currently riding a Giant Defy Advanced 2 (2012) with full Ultegra 6750 Groupset.

Had it since January, 2000 miles later, I fancy a change to a TCR.....

Wish I'd have gone for that first!!!

Can't get as low as I want on the Defy unfortunately.
Being new to road riding, I thought I'd go for the more sportive type frame, but wish I'd gone for the racier one now.

Welcome to the forum! :welcome:

Besides upgrading your bike any other bike goals in mind or upgrades to the new bike?

I started riding to be fit to complete a charity ride in September.
London to Brussels.

But it seems I've really taken to it, and I've become a little obsessed.

I'm doing a couple of sportives in June.
French Revolution and Flat out in the Fens.

Regarding the new bike.
I know exactly what I want.

TCR Advanced SL ISP with full DA Di2....

'Atta boy!

For some people a bike is a bike, but others get bitten. You sir, have been bitten.

Welcome!

Well and truly bitten!!!
I got the bike on th 16th Jan, and so far I've done over 2000 miles on it.

There's a lovely TCR that meets my criteria that I have my eye on in the FS section, but I can't PM.. :(
