About this time last year I started a build on a TCR. It went south after that. I lost my job doing security work in the middle of the paint stripping. I was able to sell off the bare carbon frame and barely broke even on the cost of taking the paint off. Two weeks after loosing my job I was offered to work as a mechanic at a local bike shop, and four months after that I was offered a job at another bike shop as a sales manager. A couple bikes later I ended up with a Propel Advanced SL with SRAM 22 build. It was absolutly flawless!
I was able to get about 500 miles on it before someone smashed a window at the shop and it was stolen!
I was never able to get a weight on it. This time I am going to do it the right way. Frame up build.
Frameset with Braze On and internal cable routing hardware. 1216g

Fork cut (full stack height) 394g
Stock expander plug. 46g (will replace with glue in when I have my fit dialed in)

Im going to run a garmin and I dont need the Giant RideSense Speed Cadence sensor. I pulled it out of the frame. 30g with hardware and magnets
