Don't forget to post at least 1 pic into this thread as well.....
It should be an awesome bike. Are the Bora's specifically for this project or were they a set you had for another bike?
I'm thinking of buying a set for the FP7 so any info/feedback you have on them would be apreciated :)

once the weather improves and i can ride them i'll post feedback :) i was looking at 2010 303s but got a ridiculous deal on the Boras. Yep, they are new for this project, though i also have a 585 Ultra and an 07 TCR Advanced, and no doubt they'll make it onto those at some point.

My newly modified TCR Advance 3, scales say 7.1kg, but not sure they are correct, i calculated it to be lighter.

Anybody know the weight of 2009 TCR Advanced 3 Frame, Forks and Seat post? M/L frame.

You must have long arms or a long torso. That size bike is usually for taller riders like me 184cm.

Yeah I have a longer torso. and that frame seems to be the most comfortable for me.

tinchy - you'd need to be fitted up - as you can see wymthg is shorter than you but fits a larger than normal (for his height) frame. You'd 'normally' be on a M/L or a L frame at your height.

sawyer mate, really liking the look of your Giant! Looks excellent with the Bora's too! Not something I see too often.

And I think Ribble had them at some silly prices - was the best i could do not to click on the 'add to basket' option!
