Is the rear spacing on the Giant TCX SLR 2 Disc 135mm, like on a mtb?

Sorry. It was a tcx slr, so alloy. The frame had proprietary seat clamp, bottle cage bolts, and both derailleur hangers on.

Can somebody measure from M or ML size TCX Advanced:
-Seat tube lenght from center of the BB to top of the toptube?
-Stackheight?
-Reach?
-BB drop?

For some reason Giant geometry chart doesn´t have these figures.

At the $1500-1600 pricepont, are there any complete bikes that are available in the US I should consider besides the TCX SLR 2?

I'm more interested in a quality frame than the components included, and I am aware that the 135mm rear spacing and 15mm thru axle, while unique, may render the frame an 'oddity' if those standards don't catch on in cx, but that doesn't concern me too much as any aftermarket wheels I'd buy would be handbuilt rather than off the shelf.

I'm not looking for something to do double-duty as a commuter/city and cx bike, this will solely be used on the miles and miles of hardpack roads, trails, and farmland we have here in California's central valley.

I'd prefer to purchase locally, and have Giant, Cannondale, Trek, Specialized, Ridley and Jamis dealers nearby.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I've got the TCX SLR 2 and am using it for both commuting and cross/trail riding. I upgraded the crankset to Shimano CX70 and the cassette to the Ultegra 12-30. Bike rides fantastic and is a fast and stable commuter with some Spec Roubaix 25/28 tires on it. Off road, stock tires are excellent and the bike is an absolute blast to ride. For the money, I think it's pretty hard to beat, and the TRP Spyre Mech discs are really good. I didn't want to have to deal with building some new wheels with the 15mm axle, nor having to worry about maintaining the hydraulic brakes on the commuter.

Bike feels really light (haven't weighed it) and is definitely lighter than my old Specialized Secteur Expert Disc.

Hey Guys. I have been racing this season on the TCX SLR 1. I love the bike. Just swapped out to some light wheels and a nicer seat and it's at 18.0 lbs in an XL. Would like to change the crank and get a carbon bar and hopefully get near 17 lbs. The only drawback right now is the crappy OEM pads that come in the S700 brakes are noisy as hell.....But once jagwire starts making them it will be all good.
