Where did you get the solid block-off plate for the downtube? Do you have a part number for it and what size frame is that?
There are actually two and both came with my bike (and I think they also come with the frameset).

One is made from rubber and is located below the bottom bracket, the other one is from hard plastic and is close to the headtube (blocks of the mechanical shifting holes).

Here is the first one:

This is the second one:

(I think at least - the website doesn't mention the model year, but they look close enough). My frame is size L.

Hi all- I currently run the regular Contact stem on my 2021 TCR because there are no Contact SL stems anywhere and the SLR stem is too expensive for a 50g saving. My current stem is ok but it's heavyish- 172g- and it doesn't sit flush with the latest aero spacers. I was thinking of getting a Zipp or Ritchey WCS stem, as they're pretty light, and buying some regular round OD2 spacers. Does anyone know if the regular OD2 spacers would fit on this latest generation TCR steerer tube?

Sure, any 1 1/4 spacers should work

Hi all,
Someone could tell me if the giant tcr advanced disc comes with a fork&steer carbon or the steer is made of aluminum.

I think all disc brake TCRs have full carbon forks

Mine came with a full carbon fork despite Giant stating it would ship with an aluminium steerer.

Yup, but you might need to shave off some of the 2021 spacers depending on their orientation.

To the people who were affected by the tcr not being compatible with the kickr I got home to a package from wahoo today with the new designed end caps free of charge so they are now in production

The new adapters are on their way to me as well. Great service from Wahoo.

Hi all,

I own a TCR Advanced 1 2021 and after having lowered my handlebar (I left two spacers) I realised that the bike is affected by a wobble when braking with the front brake, that other TCR 2021 owners have raised being an issue.
I have tightened the top bolt to its max torque and don't want to force it any further.
Has anyone affected by the same issue been able to resolve? I am unsure if I had this issue prior to lowering down the handlebar and I just didn't pay attention, or I may have done something wrong when I moved the spacers to the top...

Edit: I figured out that it was my fault as I tightened the stem clamp bolts before tightening up the top cap screw

Does anyone know if I can put the Pirelli P Race TLR tyres on the Giant Pr-2 wheels?

Yes a clincher tire with an interior. I don't recall PR2 to be tubeless ready, so you might have to do some conversion to make it tubelss.

The PR-2 from the last 5 years are all TLR, and since they're not hookless, you can ride every tire you want.
