This is my next one:
It is stiffer, but not lighter than my old TCR and I like black frames. My MCM bike is also very light and quite good -Very good durability in in the case of impact and accident :D

that all black Giant looks nice. i thought the only thing they changed for 2004 wat that they came with glossy clear coat paint. How about a white Giant TCR Composite, now that would be a cool bike.

i was also looking at the Bianchi EV4. I remember hearing some people say they were not stiff and some had cracked. Is this true, they any good?

I currently have a Colnago Ovalmaster (titanium), and a Pinarello Prince. The Prince is by far the best performing machine I have ridden. It is very stiff and responsive. There is no loss of power with this frame. I have to say it is a greaat climber as well as sprinting machine. You should be able to find pretty good deals on the Prince, but if you want to spend a little more you can get the Prince LS which is a little lighter. If you go to www.pezcyclingnews.com in there tech n spec section they have a great comparison of the C40 vs the Prince. As far as all out racing performance goes, the Prince was the better bike. Check it out it is an interesting read. As far as t goes, I am still not convinced of the merits of magnesium, so I can't recomend it. I have heard good things and bad things about it, but never a bad thing about the Prince.
