I'm a new one here and I want to present my bike as a 'welcome post'
This is student-budget built of 2012 TCR Composite 3 + components from my previous aluminium frame.
Frame: Giant TCR Composite 3 size M
Drivetrain & Brakes: Campagnolo Record Titanium 10s + FSA SL-K Crankset
1. Carbon tubular rims made in China 56mm + 2.0mm CN spokes + Sokin Hubs
2. Ambrosio Crono F20/Sapim Laser/Mack Ultralight
Tubulars: Tufo Hi-Composite Carbon
Cockpit: 3t ARX Pro 105mm + Ritchey WCS White LogicII 42cm
Saddle: Selle Italia SLR TT
Bidon Cages: Bontrager RXL (not on photo)
To be changed: Spokes to CN-Spoke Aero (saves ~100g)
I'm also thinking about getting rid of paint on this Giant seatpost and make it just carbon-black.
Feel free to comment
those tyres have no place on this build ....hosepipes !
the frame is reall good £vfm ..in many ways its "better" than my advanced as its more absorbing of shocks etc even on same wheels ...tbh when i had it i was thinking i would always cmpare it to my advanced ,,,i do but in a good way ..my advanced is uci naughty whilst my composite is 7.8kg

BUT you were right - the FSA crank is a piece of crap and now I don't like it either. Axis insert in left crank wore out (I don't know the exact word for this but the result was arm moving in front-back direction while rotating).
7.4kg with computer in current spec.
Getting spokes for these 56mm rims is almost impossible. I'm thinking about new wheelset.

Agree with the above
on a side note, does anybody know how much these frames weigh?
