after my last TCR Advanced 3 ending its life with a sudden rear hanger failure, here is my new TCR SL Team.

Just build after travelling to France to watch and ride some of the Tour de France stages in 40oC+!!

amazing handling on hairpin bends. weights in about 6.5kg

Looks like Sram Red with FSA chainrings.

I am jealous of not only your nice bike, but the fact that you are at the TdF.

Hey could you tell me where you actually got these? I'm looking forward to purchasing custom wheels like such but have no idea as to which or who's are most reliable. Thanks for helping.

Nice mate. I take it she's been out during the last 3 years and you haven't just been waiting for this spring!! :D
I got my Advanced SL frame built up last year and it got half a dozen outings before being put in the spare room!
Our Scottish weather doesn't help!!

Is your frame a small or medium?
My SL is built up with mainly Record/SR with Campag wheels but comes in around 7.1kg for a M/L.

Cheers,

Richie

Yes been out but not in the current build. Just replace shimano out for all new seam red. Only got out once on the new wheels before winter and made it such a comfy ride. Can't wait for the better weather. I am in Aberdeen so getting same weather as you.
