Anyone dug up any more news on the 2020 TCR Advanced SL as yet?
I don't expect we'll see a revised frame, however, I'm informed that they'll be offering custom paint jobs.
Also curious to see what the stock 2020 colours/graphics will be (minimalist it seems if same as the above, just seems a bit strange that Sundog is the only person in the world who's not only seen but has in his possession a 2020 frame).

Will the disc version finally have internal cable routing on the fork?

With the revival of CADEX (Giant Subsidiary) for their high-end wheels,saddle,tires I'm hoping that new TCR will have these components as standard ??
Fingers crossed!!

Picked up a 2020 Adv Pro frame last week. Have it built up, but no pics. This is the paint scheme for it though:

I like that green (?) fade a lot!
I don't suppose you have a pic of the Advanced SL do you?

It's a green fade, but it's a chameleon-ish green fade (Saturn Chameleon). Dark to light green with some metallic flakes in there. Looks sharp in person.

Unfortunately, no pics of any others.

Just thought I'd link this Giant retailer's Facebook post based out in Taiwan. Seems they have the 2020 SL on sale in both disk and rim brake versions. Doesn't appear any different to 2019 besides paint.
There are more photos on their instagram too which someone linked earlier in the thread.

I've also found a 2020 MY Advanced SL listed on the Taiwan giant website:

They haven't released that much on the SL 1 or SL 0 level, hope they include some Cadex products to whet our appetite.

In fairness, it's a stellar bicycle. No question it's the best carbon/resin, and arguably also the most consistent and high quality production in the industry too.

FWIW....I took a top of the line S Works Venge 19 for a 10km demo ride (50th bday next month) on a few hills & flats and although the stiffness was better than expected (but muted by the 28mm tires) and the responsiveness & compliance was excellent compared to a Giant Propel SL, the Venge felt no faster or stiffer than my TCR SL1 - maybe my expectations were higher than normal after reading all the Spez marketing BS but I was left slightly underwhelmed....it really drove home the fact you have to demo every bike before purchase..
