Just received this 2019 Chameleon Blue/Black TCR Advanced SL, size XS. Will be swapping out with my 2017 TCR Advanced SL, size Small.
Bike will be built with Dura Ace 9150, Mavic Cosmic Carbon SL UST wheels, Berk Dila nude saddle, Enve SES aero bar, Supacaz Bling blue carbon bar tape, Giant SLR Flux 100mm carbon stem, Speedplay titanium pedals, and Tune bottles cages. The frame with the uncut ISP weights 879 grams (starbucks napkin 2 grams :) while the uncut fork is 311 grams. According to Giant, the ISP is estimated to weight around 150 grams making the frame around 729 grams without the ISP.

WOW, this looks to be a lightweight rocket! In all fairness, though, I really like to orange frameset build as well :D

Slightly off-topic: How did you like the SLR Carbon saddle (especially in comparison to the regular padded SLR Ti if you have ever used that)?

The bike is being built tonight with the ISP and steerer tube to be cut to size later this week. Here are some crappy pics I took just before my friend and mechanic picked up the bike and all the components.

This build brought me out of the long time lurking too. Very nice paint/colour choice!

Why are you swapping? S is too big for you? This chameleon/flip/flop color is interesting, that thing was popular in car tuning some time ago... But I have to say that I like the red one maybe even more :)

I just prefer the more aggressive geometry of the smaller frame. And yes, the color too. The bike is complete. Final weight with pedals and bottle cages is 14.03 lbs as pictured.

but you don't even have the stem slammed on either... what is more aggressive about an xs then? slightly longer stem?
