No TCR Adv Aluminium and I forgot to ask.
Did see new TCR's and Defy's and TCX (plus MTB's, etc).
New Dura-Ace is very nice and the new FD feels real nice to operate on the shifters. Very light and nice SRAM like feel of the clicks and trims.
I asked about TCR Aero - no comment. But the new TCR Adv 1 and 0 both have low profile wheels. When I asked about this I was told that the TCR is considered a race/climbing bike (in other words, "we are already spinning the TCR to be a different bike so we can sell the TCR Aero with deep wheels"). Ah the games.. silly games...
had problems replacing my TCR anodised this year ( accident ) & had a COMPOSITE as a replace
i would say the composite rides better than my advanced
its so smooth ...a bit heavier but just so damn ..well great
the advanced has hung up a lot more this year with all its nice bits on whilst my ultegra clad composite has been my main companion ..

I'll be honest, I'm a little disappointed that they didn't go with the Overdrive2 fork, or at least a full carbon fork. This frame will be good for sure, but it could have been a great frame in the realm of the Canyon Ultimate AL; but available to those of us who live on the other side of the pond. I think the 2012 version from Asia had the Overdrive2 fork/HT... Too bad.
I had a chance to ride this bike already. Its VERY stiff and responsive.
The OD 2 does not help this bike with anything other than added weight. The front end is PLENTY stiff with a standard tapered fork.
The fork on the bike I rode is full carbon and is made from the advanced grade carbon rather than the lower composite grade.
