    Here's my ride for 2004 season:

    Frame: 2003 Giant TCR2
    Fork: Giant. Carbon fibre with aluminium steerer
    Groupset: 2003 Shimano Dura-Ace (Ultegra hubs and bottom bracket)
    Pedals: 2003 Shimano Dura-Ace SPD-SL
    Seat: Fizik Arione (comfy as a sofa + looks cool)
    Seatpost: Thomson Elite
    Headset: FSA Integrated
    Stem: Thomson Elite, 110mm
    Bars: 3TTT Prima 220
    Rims: Mavic Open Pro 32h
    Tyres: Continental

    (Planning some new wheels - Chris King hubs with some tubs.. super light. Bike will be under 15lbs by that stage)... Could lose more weight if I got a lighter stem, seatpost and seat... but hey, gotta have *some* comfort.

    Had to return the *bling bling* gold cages though.. Plating on them was pish and was flaking off after a few rides. Can't have you cake and eat it I guess...

    That's a great frame, mzagorski -- and what a nice setup you've graced it with! I've got a TCR2 right now, and although the plan was to sell it when my new Klein came in (almost here, guys - should have pictures by February), I may keep it as a commuter for a while longer just because it's such a loveable little racehorse. They sure are stiff, sprightly frames, those TCRs!

    Looks great.

    Thanks... i remember my first ride on it... very late at night.. no traffic... if felt absolutely awesome.. very lively ride. I did my own personal 1 man criterium for a good 30 mins before talking me self into going home to sleep :eek:) I love TCR's now. Before that I owned a Colnago master-x-light.. which was nice, but heavy... before that was an aluminium pinarello.. which was nice and turned heads.. people liked its blue paint... but, TCR is definitely my best bike yet.

    Giant OCR1 Triple (hah! bad habit-inducing for me!), now fitted with Shimano RH540 wheels, ITM Millenium seatpost and Bodyfit Viper saddle. Nothing incredibly special compared to what I've seen out there (and on here) but personally think it's a great ride and suits my needs perfectly

    Next upgrade is the Ultegra groupset, but only when I feel I can actually justify spending the £££s...

    Love the TCR2, Mzagorski!

    Which one???

    But my favorite ride by far is my 2003 Look 381i Team CSC. Has full Dura-Ace with Look ErgoPost, Easton 90 bars, Easton 70 stem, Flite SLR, HSC fork and Ksyrium SL SSCs. And, by the way it is FASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSST.

    This bike blows my fondriest and Lemond away....

    I have two roadbikes. Two years ago I got a steel Jamis Ventura with full tiagra -- which was my first foray into road bikes. In November I bought an 04 Cannondale R800- CAAD7 , 105/Ultegra mix. Steel for cruising along in comfort and CAAD7 when I want to FEEL like a bike racer (even thoug I don't look or ride like one).

    Its been interesting comparing the two rides -- I'd never ridden aluminum until I started shopping for the new bike. I wouldn't say the CAAD7 is harsh on me but I there is a definite difference. I would sum it up this way -- when I am riding the steel Jamis I don't really feel the road, but I sure feel the bike -- particularly up hills. Conversely, on the cannondale, I don't feel the bike (it goes up hills like a rocket ship) but I feel the road much more.

    New to cycling. Rode quite a few bikes before I chose. At the $750 I paid for it nothing came close for me.

    I know how you feel, Fondriest keeps tormenting me with e-mails about the new "04" models. Someone stop me before I do something rash.

    Hey, me too! I'm obviously to blame for landing on the Fondriest mailing list at some point -- I must have entered a sweepstakes for a free frameset or something -- but they've been sending out their most recent email ad in bulk!

    I literally received that '04 frames ad THREE times yesterday, and once the day before. They need to figure out what's going on with their email-marketing services.

    Nice frames though.
