Probably different versions (normal/Skyline) - who knows...

nino says "some new cranks (should be lighter than the Storck)" which cranks is he talking about.

I guess he means the upcoming tune carbon cranks said to weigh 210 g - still in prototype stage though!


i think he said 178g - or did he mention 210g somewhere else?

Nino is not the only source out there. ;)
I read the 210 g in a German forum.

ahhh, sucks, i was looking forward, to losing 1/2 lb if that frame ever came into market this year. so i guess we wont see a 800 gram frame :(

I once read that framebuilder Teschner advertised a 750g-Frame (with a 1-year warranty as opposed to the 10-years he hves to all his other frames...)

Ok guys fill me in what´s the point in striving after a bike and the components like the Giant when it´s under UCI weight limit anyway? Excepts for the moment when UCI lowers it ofcourse.

mrowkoob, i'm not sure where you're writing from, but in the usa and other countries, much of the amateur racing is not governed by uci regulations, so anthing goes.

for me, it is a challenge and fun to build a bike as light as possible, yet have it remain 100% usable, be reliable, etc. i also like having trick looking parts on my bike, that set themselves apart from the norm.

Isn't this why we, the weight weenies excist? :D

We like to do such things! Some people like to follow the UCI regulations, but some others like to squeeze every unnesserery ballast out of their bikes!

Don't try to apply the rules that you use yourself to others.

I don't ride in UCI races. I do Centuries and Doubles these days, and some of those have up to 18,500 feet of elevation gain, so a light bike is a nice thing to have along for the ride.

On the TCR Advanced my LBC has told me that their contacts in Giant said that the Advanced will definitely be produced this year, but they don't think in time for the TdF. Probably August. SO, not sure where the story came from that it was only a one-off. I think they will be able to sell as many as they can produce.
