Frame is definitely different to Aussie offerings, Closest I would think is the TCR Alluxx?
Otherwise our Defy has different seat stays, and our TCR 's are all carbon? From what I can see.
Giant certainly has a history of different model varieties in different countries.
Our Giant thread shows that to be true.

Cheers Austke

Post is 248g uncut and unfortunately is required due to the seattube shape. The seatpost clamp is a bit of a porker too.

It seems the TCR SL model is region specific...

How different is this SL model compared to this?

Says AluxxSL on the chainstays, model is just TCR though.
