ShinyBaldy, can you post some more info on the TCR Advanced, as you did in the other thread LOL? Seems you are still confusing people with your rants... perhaps this time you can post the Cliff notes version of your TCR Advanced diagnosis.
I own a very light TCR, so I am a fan of the bike... no giant bashing around here.
The pre-TdF prototypes and testing versions often had no integrated seatpost. Those were branded TCR-Advanced. The TdF-teambikes showed up with integrated seatpost. WIth certain folks using them and others not. As far as the geometry and primarily contruction of the frame is concerned, it is essentially the same frame. You can probably take a hack saw to the seatpost if you didn't like its length.
(Else imagine how does one adjust saddle height with onyl 20mm of adjustment on the special clamp)
Here's a TCR Advanced sectioned - whether the production model will have integrated seatpost or not seems already decided. Altho I suppose tall folks might need to hack it off and install their own. Esp with modern day fitting of bicycles - long stems and small frames aren't out of the question.
