    lucky you. Maybe $300 cheaper than you could get it for.

    I'd go for it over the other thread you have.

    Yah I think I might. I'll know in a little bit whether or not I get it. I was thinking that or getting possibly a Giant TCR-2 the tcr-2 it would take me an extra month of work and absolutely almost no spending on the side to get. What you think?

    Which tcr, it doesn't look like they have a tcr 2 this year?

    I suppose you mean the 03 tcr alloy 2, same components I don't think the frame is as nice. The r800 gets the top of the line cannondale frame. They say the same about the giant but I don't think they really put the same sort of work into it as cannondale.

    Hello Liquid Mercury,

    Did you get that R800 Cannondale? If so, what do you think of the C'Dale Omega brakeset, the Gipiemme wheelset and the TruVatiV crank? I'm in the market for a similarly equiped Cannondale, and am curious about the performance of these components.

    Thx.
