I recently (Oct 2010) got into road biking. Before that I had been a mountain biker for many years. The SL was my first bike last year, but when my LBS made a deal I couldn't refuse on the LTD, I bit. I was originally going to sell the SL, but decided to keep it and use it as my winter and race bike. I'm probably going to get some Zipp 303 FC clinchers on the LTD and move the 101s to the SL for racing.

The Giant Ltd looks amazing, the blue and white looks great!!! This is one bike where all the matching color parts go together perfectly.

Also interseted in the weight of both of them.

I don't have scale, but the LTD was ~15.5 lbs before the carbon railed Arione. (I know, I should get one to be a WW :D )

What are the differences in ride and agility between these frames? I'm very curious because I have an older TCR Advanced myself.
