having put together my stealthy black race-build which I finished on Monday evening (viewtopic.php?f=10&t=109000), last night I turned my attention to another of my bikes which was sitting as a pile of bits in the kitchen. A few hours of spanner twirling and cable cutting later, this is was the result:-

the bike is a 2011 Giant TCR Advanced 2 (size large). The mods over standard are:-

38mm carbon clincher rims on Novatec hubs with Sapim aero spokes
Vittoria Evo Corsa CX tyres
Planet X Ti/Carbon skewers
Swisstop Yellow brake pads
Jagwire Gold Medal cable set
Rotor Q-Rings
Onza gold chainring bolts
Ultegra SPD-SL pedals
Deda Zero 2 (new model) stem (90mm)
Deda RHM02 bars (42cm c-c)
Cinelli Cork ribbon (slightly chewed by the dog)
Cinelli Gel Inserts
Cinelli Milano bar end plugs

The bike fits like a glove (on the turbo trainer). I have no idea how it rides as I haven't actually ridden it yet. The Q-Rings should be a giggle though!

Love the detailing you've done.
Looks like a bike that's ready to be ridden. :thumbup:

Giant built a real classic of the future with that frame.
