I just thought I should introduce myself to everyone here. I've been lurking for a little while and finally decided that I might as well join. I live in Socal and I am putting myself through college, so I don't have a very gucci ride yet, but will be looking forward to some advice on components that will give me the best bang for the buck.

A little info about my ride:

'03 Giant TCR Elite - XL
Alpha Q Pro-EX fork
105 Shifters, R. derailleur
Dura-Ace front derailleur
Ultegra Crankset
Speedplay Zero Stainless pedals
No-name brakes (the frame requires long pull brakes)
Ritchey bars and seatpost
Selle Italia Saddle
Forte Stem
Handbuilt Mavic Open Pro/Ultegra
Elite Cages

She's definitely not the lightest on the block, but she gets the job done and allows me to race. :D

Let's see if this works. This is how she lies right now. No pedals because I pulled them off to ride the LA Velodrome last weekend. That was a blast! But I'm sure you all can imagine a pair of Speedplay Zero Stainless pedals on it (the CSC-red type).
