@Tinea, this is my 2013 TCR adv se. Basically just a standard advanced sans graphics. Before this, I had a 2011 tcr adv sl isp. The bikes are definitely different from eachother in feel. Also, this one is over .25lb heavier and thats with new red vs old.

Hoping to have a 2013 TCR Advanced SL0 soonish. Trying to finalise pricing, colour and availability ( how quickly he can get a hold of one in the size and colour that I want). Standard spec.
90% sure this is what I will go with.

Are there any of those bikes in the wild? Looks like we're not going to see the 9070 groupset until the spring classics.

Just been confirmed by my LBS. Earliest I can get it is 3 rd week of February. Apparently that is the earliest the 9070 grouppo will be available for me. I think he was saying he Might be able to get 1 a little earlier but I am happy to wait.
It will be a medium with the blue highlights.
Tinea, which model are you getting? Sorry for my ignorance, if you have already mentioned it.

I find the front end to be rather harsh on this bike. Not something I ever noticed on a bike before. Not necessarily a bad thing, as the steering precision is quite perfect. Also, compared to my SL, this standard advanced doesnt feel as solid as unit. The front and rear feel separated because of how incredibly solid the front end is. The seatpost is surprisingly forgiving. I find the bike is a little more affected by crosswinds compared to other bikes I've owned.

No no, not at all. Not mentioned as even I was not totally sure on the model.

It'll be the TCR Advanced SL 0.

I pre-ordered a 2013 TCR Advanced SL 0 back in September here in the states with my local rep. It was really unclear when the bike was going to be available becuase of the 9070 option as noted. I heard everythimg from December 2012 to late spring 2013. So I switched to the 2013 TCR Advanced SL 1 and my bike arrived in November (same bike, full Mechnical 9000, vs Di2). I decided I would rather have the new bike then wait. I will probabbly upgrade to the Di2 parts after the 2013 season is over and the frame is designed for an easy change over (my current bikes has the 7900 version of Di2). I will try to get a pick of my bike up this weekend.

Really impressed with the job Giant did asembling the bike and packing it. It built up very nicely. Also the DT made, Giant branded, wheels are really nice. I did swap out the Giant bar and stem. Hard to find other stems in 1.25, not a lot of options.

Tinea,
I would love to see your TCR SL0, when you take delivery of it. Cant wait to get mine. :D

Here is a couple of shots of a loan bike from my LBS.

It is a 2013 Giant Defy Composite 2 in a medium. As far as I can tell it is the same spec as on the Giant Australia Website. SRAM apex Groupset, KMC X10, etc etc. Its weight according to my hanging scales is 8.5kg on the dot.

Sorry about the pics, as my wifes slr pics would'nt upload, (not sure if size was an issue), So I took these with my IPHONE 5 and then uploaded them, ( Via Facebook and then saved to my pics folder, which then chopped the size down for me :D ).

If there are any other shots that anybody wants such as brakes or what have you, just let me know, and I will see what I can do.

Cheers and a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all.

Austke

My 2013 Giant TCR Advanced SL4

Only changes so far are Ritchey Carbon Logic 2 bars, Lizard Skin bar tape, Specialized Toupe saddle, Look Keo Carbon pedals, Dura Ace cassette, Reynolds Assault wheels, and Michelin Pro 3 tires. It weighed about 16.8 pounds stock from the bike shop. I have not weighed it with the changes, but it is starting to approach 16 I would imagine. Future changes include a Ritchey stem and titanium skewers. I also need to cut the steerer tube and perhaps the seatpost. Possibly thinking about a lighter crankset.
