I posted a topic before about my Giant TCR Composite.
I have now got a new project. It is a new Time Trial bike. I have been offered a new Giant TCR Aero, by my LBS for a very reasonable price. I currently have a time trial bike, but the frame is old and this is a much better option.
My plans are:
1. Get the frame (I have attached some pictures)
2. Fit the old equipment
The current equipment is Shimano 105 9speed, however my wheels are 10speed, my plan is to change the 9speed deraillieur (rear) for the new 10speed 105 one which will enable me to use these wheels with the new bike. The bike has bar end shifters on friction so this is not a problem.
My questions/thoughts, that I'd like to recieve feedback from are:
The frame is not great colours, how much would it be for a respray?
Can I get the graphics off the bars (pics attached)
What other advantages for minimal money, should I do? Thinking, Solid Chainring?
Bearing in mind I have £250.00 for rest of what I want:
105 10speed deraillieur
105 10speed chain
This leaves me with £180-190 to spend elsewhere on the bike
all help/suggestions will be grately recieved
