Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

Crazy idea to change my Giant TRC Advanced 2006 (pictures) to a Aluminium Canyon Ultimate Al?
I can't help it but since I saw Ph. Gilbert riding his alu Canyon this season I keep thinking about it...
I race a few times a year but most rides are trainingrides between 60 and 120 km.
Should there be a huge difference in riding?

I wouldn't make that change. Your Giant is a particularly nice example of the breed. Unless you are unhappy with the flexibility of the front of the bike and and the fork IMO the move would be a downgrade. If you can't afford something " better" then that Canyon then wait till you can. Canyon Ultimate CF perhaps?

My Giant was a topframe in 2006. Should this new Canyon CF be stiffer overall? So an upgrade?
Or perhaps I buy some 50mm high carbon rims with the money.

Giant 2006 + 50mm carbon rims
or
