The carbon back plate came from Poshbikes, they are made by fibrelyte. Not a bad product, just unfortunate really. They should save you about six grams on 9 speed derailleur, but on ten speed I think that Shimano composite plastic back should be lighter.

The wheel was a Ksyrium, still allright just scratched the spokes, the carbon back plate and 2 jockey wheels are missing though

My TCR is like the colour of the first ones that came out, they use the Grey in the same Graphics as the old Alum frames, not the new Swish logo

pat, you can buy the plate direct from fibre-lite directly in the uk.

their service was very prompt. unfortunately, the plate only saved 2 grams over the stock record unit it replaced. hardly worth the expense for 2 grams. your choice.

the tcr with the blue stickers you may be thinking of is mine
