Last year I raced Tri's and had some fun, had a tribe of bikes (Specialized Allez, Transition, and a Felt Breed). After a couple races I found that no matter how fast you swim and bike, if you can't run your screwed. So I sold off all the bikes and started my dream bike build for Road Racing and Crit's next year.
2009 Giant TCR Advanced
SRAM Rival Group
SRAM Force GPX with BB86
Ritchey pro4x Bar and Stem
09 Zipp 404 Clincher (Alu braking surface)
Toray Bottle Cages

After lurking on here for a little while and gaining confindence that this is not to big of a project to take on in just one offseason. I ordered up my carbo-lift (huge undertaking in it's own), and bartered up a paint job. So next week the bike is getting stripped down. Paint is going to be a matte clear, and the gloss black logo's arrived today in the mail. I will pull weights off when it gets stripped down. I know in it's current set-up it's sitting around 7.5kg to 8k

I am going to swap the bar and stem out for Beyond Black Service Course (will slam and cut at the same time now that I have my position set). This will be the best fit for my needs doing crit's next year so I have a little bit more crash protection. Same with the Zipp's. With the old Alu braking surface I sould be able to keep some crash protection, and have the stopping power I worry about with full carbon clinchers. After that it's small parts.

Also worked out a trade for a TT bike. So I will have my hands on a Giant Trinity SL build soon also.

I am looking forward to seeing how it looks when it comes back from the painter!

Good luck with the carbo-lift, you are going to need it :? . Tip: try and get the temperature as high as possible.

Thanks SWijland, I've got a bit of an advantage in the Florida sun.

On my Scott CR1 carbolift worked a lot better in the burning sun, under cling film.
