Hi all,

I have buy my first road bike 6 month ago. After some search i have choose the Giant TCR Composite 2 from 2011. Middle equipement but a good basic frame.

Here the spec of this bike from the Giant website :

http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-us/bik ... 425/44036/

After some rides, i decide to upgrade this bike to this actual version :

Some details :

Seatpost : Giant
Headset: Giant from FSA.
Stem : Zipp Service course 120mm ( waiting the new Ritchey C260 )

Saddle : SLR 2011 with Ti rails
Crankset : Sram Red Black 175mm 53/39

Just for show you my last upgrade :

It's the WCS version of the new Ritchey C260 stem for 2012.
Not really easy to install but after 3 weeks of riding with this stem, i'm happy with this new purchase. It's light: 113 gr for the 120 mm version and the rigidity are good enough for me ( i'm a 95 kg rider for 189 cm )

I hope that Ritchey hurries up and releases the C260 here in the United States. I've been wanting one for my new (re)build of my replacement Cervelo frame. I am hoping that next week, after Interbike, they will be made available.

By the way, I am not usually a Giant fan but I love the way yours looks. Great component choice as well. Do tell us more about those hubs.

Very nice racy build! :thumbup:

I rode one of these built up with 105 at a Rabo corporate event on Friday. It didn't light the world on fire but at the same time I can see how it is a really good race tool. It's just one of those bikes that just goes where you want it too and is super stable. I have to say that I was impressed.

Even with the heavy parts it didn't stop me from winning the 'King of the Mountain' compeition...which doesn't mean too much when you're riding with a bunch of flat landers and live in the alps. :mrgreen:

I wouldn't mind finding this frameset even in the alu to build up.
