Been that way with the TCR SLR for a while now, hasn't been available in Australia for 2-3 years now. Shame, as they seem quite nice.

Aluminum models are unfortunately not sold in Korea.
In Korea, there is no popular models of aluminum.

I would totally rock this one, but unfortunately this color is not available in the US. I wonder why?

In USA, aluminum models are called "Contend"

The Contend is a different bike to the TCR SLR though. I'd say the Contend is more similar to the Defy range

The Contend is an entry level endurance bike that is available everywhere. It's the replacement of the aluminium Defy.

It is not a TCR SLR.

Asked my local dealer how I could get hold of a frameset only (have a Propel and Trinity so would be nice to get an alu TCR) and they stated the only way is to get someone to get an overseas agent to ship directly to me - no idea how to go about finding an overseas agent though and don't know what the frameset actually sells for? Any help appreciated!
