Well I finally have my aluminum GIANT TCR zero built. I am very happy with the finished product and can not wait to get it out on the road. The only changes that I will do in the near future will be to have the forks stripped and clear coated to get that NUDE look. I think Easton puts way to many stickers on their forks. I will get some new stickers in a dark grey color or medium grey color to give the black frame a bit of a stealth look and a new computer. Possibly the new Strada from Cateye. Oh I almost forgot that I will be getting some aluminum butterflies for my Speedplay's soon. I think they might be coming in anodized black.

Here is the build list and I will get some picture of the bike as soon as it is nice out.

Here is a picture of it before the last changes.

It was around 16 lbs. at the time.

I can not wait to get my special parts!!!!!

I might switch out the current seat post to a EC90 zero offset with a modified clamping system. I just have to find a good priced seat post and some other bits.

And maybe a Carbon Railed Fizik Arione but that will be it for sure. I would love to be able to get this into the 13lbs range but it might be hard to do.

I have done some more tuning thanks to Fibre-Lyte and the bike is now 13.82 lbs with a single bottle holder and a CatEye Strada cordless.

Fibre-Lyte was very nice in getting me some carbon 50-36 front rings as well as some amazing 4 spoke carbon pulleys.

The bike on paper comes in at 13.72 which sounds about right with the computer on and the weight listed above was done with my new Alpine scale so it is very accurate.

I never thought that I would finish the bike off but I am very happy with the build and the fact that I was able to get my TCR ALUMINUM down to under 14 lbs and was surprised to see it on the scale at 13.82 lbs.

I will update the build list and hopefully will get some pictures of the bike when it is sunny out.
