Purchased it in 2003, you have much better components. At the time i thought it was the bomb. But this is Giants 1st genereation carbon bike, and while the finish on the bike is great it suffered from some serious flaws. The fork was changed in 2004 and has been changed every year. Like everyone else has stated, I could never take my hands off the bars at speed with confidence.
The BB area is also very "soft" I don't know if that was from 3 years of riding the frame or from the design, but the new Giants are far more beefed up in that area.
I moved all my components from the Giant to a Look 585, and what a world of difference.
Not saying you should buy a Look, but with the components and wheels you have on that frame, it like putting Ferari wheels and tires on a Honda Civic. The Civic is a great car, but it has it's limitations.
Move those wheels to a good frame and you won't believe the ride difference. The wheels are 3x the price of the frame.

I also have a 2003 TCR and have no problem at all with taking my hands off on flats, uphill, or downhill, although I never recommend taking your hands off the bars while screaming :shock: down hill. That would just be stupid. :lol:

Nice bike, but I don't like the position of the stem !
It's probably a good position for the rider, but I don't like it ...

how do you find the use spin stix? are they easy to handle with. Can you take a pic of the other side of the bike, so the skewers are better visible.
