    CRX 0 Disc, we have a little time to wait, September!! :eek:

    Price, RRP well over $K2, but LBS says we should be able to get for a street price of $1999. :cool:

    Seems overpriced. Essentially 105 groupo with Ultegra RD to add flash (don't you hate it when they do that??). Measly EA30 bar/stem - these are entry level bits, even EA50 can be had for very little, Giant are a bunch of cheap skates.

    Fair enough, the price seems steep, $2k for that bike. Could get a 06 OCR Comp by topping alittle.

    Just looked at that Giant OCR3W 2XS at Runners World (flying visit). Nice bike! However, I will stick with my Felt. Will try it out if time tomorrow to compare. I like the cyclocross levers on my Felt.

    Had a look at Giant Upland in XS (new size) last week, and am going to order one as soon as I have sold the Apollo. Great to see that Giant are eventually catering for us small ladies.

    I used to have a Sedona in XS, but because of the suspension it is a big bike.

    A few interesting things going on there!

    OCR C3 - Carbon + Tiagra

    No more OCR1, meaning that if you want Ultegra or better then you have to get a carbon frame.

    I hear Tupperware has a new container coming out in 07.

    The excitement is building.

    Looks like there is no Alloy TCR range for 07....so....carbon looks the way to go (sigh...)

    The new TCR alliance looks interesting, although the graphic design (decals) are horrible !.

    Hah, what do you know? As soon as I decide I am getting the LeMond, Giant go and drop their new bikes on me.

    It sounds like you guys aren't so keen on these Giants. I have to admit, I am not so sure about an 'Alloy/Carbon blend' whatever that might be.

    Being a newb to cycling I know nothing of those other components you get on the TCR Alliance 1. How do Mavic Aksium wheelset and the FSA Gossamer OS Bar and Stem rate to the components that were on there last year (or better still, how do they rate compared to the Bontragers on the LeMond Chambery)?

    Cheers,
    Whytey
