Cool find. There are some interesting things in the photo:

-Both Sprint bikes list shimano components with front derailleurs but both pictures show them as cx1 (force and rival) without any front derailluers
-Looks to be a new FSA Gossamer crank on the lower end models and it is UGLY

Think this looks like a perfect "budget" race bike! Do any one have some more information if it will come to the EU? Read somewhere it should not..

Looks like a 1x11 setup, but damn, those welds look horrible.

This looks terrific. Well played Spec.

And not a patch on the 2011 TCR.

Wondering if it still has the ultra old, ultra tall geo.

Do any of you actually weld AL? Welds look nice and sturdy to me. Not sure why they used that post and did not build an elastomer into it or something to help with dampening.

Can't say much for the aesthetics of that frame. IMO the new Giant Propel ALR looks much better
