Imo needs some aero bars, but other than that this is some serious bike porn :shock:

been using ZG's in most of my builds, for me perfect combination of weight, price and stopping power for my needs.

sorry too but not a fan of EE either. i actually find the aesthetics ugly.
and they dont work very well in dropped seatstay mounts in some recent frames (canyon aeroad) because the center-pull based cable hits or will need to make a funny sideroute to clear the seattube.
no need to buy something more expensive which doesnt work for me. :wink: :wink: :wink:

Another vote for aero bars. I know it´s not an aero frame, but if you put aero wheels on, it screams for aero bars, or integrated aero handlebar. I´d personally keep current setup and consider any lower profile wheelset on TCR.

Anyway great looking bike, must be riding like a dream. :thumbup:

Is that an S or XS size?

FYI, all TCR Advanced SL frames are the same. The only difference between SL2, SL1 and SL0 is the groupset and wheels.
