Wow! Looks very tasty, even the top end Alu model TCX SLR 0 looks like a winner! Hydraulic Sram discs etc too http://www.bikeradar.com/news/article/revamped-giant-tcx-advanced-and-tcx-slr-cyclocross-bikes-revealed-37797/

Nice. Really like the clean lines but after racing Masters Worlds in thick, frozen goop 2-years in a row, I am curious with the way the rear brake line exits to the inside of the stay will end up as another place to collect mud?

That's a very interesting observation! Seems a bit odd especially with spokes whizzing past there too

thru-axle 155mm front fork. Could be good or bad. Limited wheel choices - probably need to custom build, and longer wheel swap time if needed.

Haha, it's a 15mm through axle, 100mm spacing. Same as almost any decent xc MTb these days. Just about every hub that accepts disc brakes these days comes in a 15mm variant

The Carbonframne is 1055 Gramm in medium
Fork ist 410 Gramm.
The 15 mm Axlestandard is perfect, so every Wheel fits without working on the brake.

Alloyframes claimed weight : 1200 Gramm
I will check that, when they arrive.
