My other bike. Been with it for the longest time. Upgraded parts on it every now and then. It now serves as my secondary bike / training bike.

Giant TCR alloy 2002
Shimano 105 Black 5700 group
Mavic Cosmic Carbone SLR 2012
~9 kg (not WW worthy, I know :( )

Here's my 2010 TCR Advanced, currently at 16,5lbs/7.5kg.

In its original form, it started at 17,92 lbs/8.1kg , here are the changes so far:

Tacx Tao bottle cages
Easton EA70 handlebar
Ritchey WCS 4 -Axis stem
Ultremo ZX tires
Dura Ace C24 clincher wheels
Xpedo Thrust 8 pedals
KCNC Steel wheel skewers

I don't think I can loose any more weight, the last step on my list is to switch to a Dura Ace 7900 groupset.

Heres my 07 TCR

I just finished, pretty much a complete (tight budget) rebuild on it... thanks ebay! All new cables, housing, full Tiagra group, chain, cassette, wheels, bar, stem, tires, saddle, paint and powder coat.
I know it's not much to brag about compared to most of these bikes here, but I love it!

(haven't put the tape on yet in this pic, black Cinelli)

Here's what it looked like when I bought it...

No need to quote the above pic!


This is one of the best looking Giant I have ever seen! I use to have the earlier version of TCR Advance with ISP Post, your bike look much better..

@Tinea, this is my 2013 TCR adv se. Basically just a standard advanced sans graphics. Before this, I had a 2011 tcr adv sl isp. The bikes are definitely different from eachother in feel. Also, this one is over .25lb heavier and thats with new red vs old.
