Hello All,

This is my first posting on Weight Weenies. This is a brand new GIANT TCR SLR that I am currently building. I have about 200 miles on the bike and will continue to make some tweaks.

Here are the details so far:

Frameset - GIANT TCR SLR (all black) 1668 grams
Crankset - Shimano Dura Ace 7900 (53x39 - 172.5mm)
Brakes - Shimano Dura Ace 7900
Bottom Bracket - Shimano Dura Ace 7900
Rear Derailleur - Shimano Dura Ace 7900
Front Derailleur - Shimano Dura Ace 7900
Cassette - Shimano Dura Ace 7900 (12-23)
Chain - KMC X10SL Ti Nitride (Gold Coating)
Shifters - Shimano Ultegra 6700STI
Seatpost - Giant Vector Composite
Saddle - Selle Italia Tekno Superflow
Stem - Ritchey WCS260 (120mm)
Handlebars - 3T Ergosum Compact (40cm)
Wheelset - Zipp 404 Firecrest Clincher (Pictured)
Skewers - Zipp (MB)
Tyres - Continental GP4000s
Pedals - Look Keo Blade Titanium (16Nm)
Cages - Zipp Carbon
Computer - Garmin Edge 500 with K-Edge Mount & Cadence Sensor

----------------

On race day, I swap out the 404FC for Zipp 303 Firecrest Tubulars.
Over the next month, I plan to change the shifters to Dura Ace 7900 and swap out the stock fork for a tapered Enve 2.0.

----------------
The pictured weight is 7219 grams / 15.92 pounds
With the tubulars, the weight drops to 6880 grams / 15.17 pounds
I estimate that with the fork and shifter upgrades, race day weight should be 6660 grams / 14.68 pounds

How much does the TCR SLR frameset cost?

Great frame, jealous. I can't get that frameset in Switzerland unfortunately, which is a shame really.

Post better pictures please.

Looks great! I recently bought a TCR SL1 (anodised) and hope to shed even more grams!

For those that are curious, The frameset came with the frame, fork, and seatpost. The frame weighed 1180g, the fork weighed 488g (uncut), and the seatpost weighed 252g.

That frame weight is lighter then my '13 Tcr adv (m/l) but the fork is over 140g more. Carbon steerer, right?
