on the dining room table too?

I really like the TCR we get here in Oz with ultegra, the black and grey one. Looks like a good bike.

Gave the TCR a bit of a makeover last night. Not sure about the silver wheels but the seat and bar tape look quite good. I was thinking of going with green bartape and green striped tyres on the Cosmics....... Any thoughts?

No worries... Ive had some of the lime green stuff hanging around for a while now and today I bought a Giant TCR Advanced 2 2010, think Il put the two together. Black and green looks so good imho :x

Got it built... Just a minor issue with the seat tube bottle cage bolts and Di2 battery! Giant have been dozing. Otherwise pleased. I'll put CCUs on to take a few g's off when needed. Currently about 7.3kg I think. Sorry.

And yes, the steerer needs cutting and some adjustment no doubt once the weather clears and I can ride it! Big thanks to Dan at Sigma! Awesome work...

James_London that is lovely. Absolutely class probuild. Do you have a build list for us addicts?

What is the solution to the bolt issue on the ST?

Do let us know how you get on with Di2.

Ye ol' Giant of mine, which isn't in existence anymore... 6815g back in '01. Stiff like a wet noodle but it rode like a dream!! (better than my Scott Addict)

You all need to take a closer look at Luc's modest little post and photo of his bike...None of you are going to get down to the weight of Luc's bike.
I can vouch that his bike is incredibly light, and ridden. Like my Giant of old, these bikes are still riding, and riding strong.

How light is it?

gandini - i like the superlight builds too but there's another species of WW represented on this thread rather nicely by James_London or my (unfinished) build which is essentially a rock solid probuild which looks a treat and yet still has one eye on the scales. :D
