    I have yet to get a Giant roadie, but it is on the list. I have rebuilt and raced Giant's mountain bike frames for almost my whole carrer. The fleet bikes are a 92 Sedona(super custom) and an 01 XTC SE-2. Both are highly capable as are all of the ones I have reworked.
    From what I can tell, you have the model I want to get. I was either going for a TCR or OCR.

    Here is a picture of my trike, camping equipment, and the old fellow. Any one want to bike, slowly, about 600 miles this summer, let me know.

    It seems that Saeco'ligious vbmenu_register("postmenu_1771635", true); was making a statement that was intended to be constructive criticism. However, life has shown me that many folks, if not most, don't appreciate any type of criticism. But, name-calling is never professional or acceptable.

    "I was either going for a TCR or OCR."

    FYI - for 2005 Giant has really expanded their lineup. The TCR series of bikes are the true race machines while the OCR line tend to be a little less aggressive. That said the OCR`s are available framed in carbon fiber or with carbon fiber seat and chain stays.

    In other words Giant has really offered up lots of choices. Since you race MTB`s I`m guessing you will want to look at the TCR lineup. Might take a little getting used too but once you are comfortable with the road bike you will be golden. :)

    Ooh can I come visit?!! Richard Bach's writing about 'modern day barnstorming' and flying across the country in his old biplane are some of my favorites. When flying rich folk outta Sun Valley and San Diego gets old I think I will need to so some solo travel by ancient biplane....
    In case there's any doubt, YOUR kind of flying is what I consider the 'real stuff.' Our learjet is a Push-Button-Go-Far machine, and while it's nice to takeoff with 7000 pounds of thrust and climb at 6,000 feet per minute, we can't smell the fresh mown grass of a country landing strip, or listen to the wind whip through the wires.....

    Another photo I dug up for this forum...

    Hey, there's a lot of power in those tender little legs. And the generally slight profile makes me a knife in the wind...
