I also love that the compact/sloping bikes people *hated* vs traditional level TT bikes are now accepted. The cycle of curmudgeony begins anew.

How far are they going to go? :smartass:

We’ll know when we get there.

The silly thing about those BH G7s is the effective min saddle rail height despite the sloping TT. 726mm for the M/54cm? Odd.

Basically what happens when you design a frame specifically around super-tucking? :noidea:

Got an update from my LBS. The new Advanced SL Disc will drop in my country by 2nd quarter. It's 100g lighter than current disc. He's not allowed to share much more :D

Thanks to the COVID-19 Virus the new TCR will not be available in the near future/months. As of now it is unlikely to be official launched before the Tour.

The easiest way to tell that’s a new 2021 TCR is the incredibly skinny fork legs.

I think the tell tale sign is the seat post on the SL is the same diameter as the seat tube.

That looks about a million times better than most pro bikes now.

So for the rim brakes there is a direct mount on the frame (rear), but normal mount on the fork? Strange.

I wonder why did they bother with the rear as more than %70 of braking power is on the front. That's not what I expected from Giant.

Giant seems to think that rim brakes are about to die and didn't even bother with it.
