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.

Hoping to have a 2013 TCR Advanced SL0 soonish. Trying to finalise pricing, colour and availability ( how quickly he can get a hold of one in the size and colour that I want). Standard spec.
90% sure this is what I will go with.
2013 Giant TCR Advanced SL 0, 6.92kg
2013 Giant Defy Composite 2 M, 8.5kg - Wife's
Azzurro Torino 8.55g
Fuji 650 10.8kg
Miele Lupa Triple Tandem 38,89kg
