Nice ride there dude, a new set of light wheels and you will have a speccy bike to be proud of. I nearly went the TCR option (I have owned 3 of them) again but after riding my Dale decided to stick with that frame.

Nice bike, but you gotta get a lighter post, yours is a brick! :lol:

If you get around to it grab an Easton EC 90 and trim it, about 100g less then whats on you ride. :shock:

i have a velomax ascent rear wheel also but it is for a shimano cassette and it's on my old cannondale. i might get a new campy velomax ascent anyway later. the 3 tcr's you owned, were they composite?


yep, the post is heavy. the stem, and bars too. they're next on the upgrade list after the rear wheel.

the ec90 only comes in one lenght 250mm. I don't know if he could trim much from looking at the pic. Also only 27.2mm. Don't know what the ST on the Giant is. I bought a USA shim to go with mine for a 31.6 ST

Nice ride though.

910 g is extremely light for an S Composite frame. The lightest one I saw was a hair over 950 g.

Edit: I just see the collar was not included - still a sweet and light frame.
