there is a second hand store selling this giant tcr for $600 and i am wondering what year this bike was made so i have a bit of an idea if it is a good buy. bellow is a bit of a discription about the bike and the picture.
any help would be great thanks.
What a bike! The Giant Tcr 1. With a Shimano 105 group, Shimano wheels, lightweight bars, stem and frame ,It comes with a Fi'zik saddle, lightweight bars and stem in oversize diameter to ensure minimal flex. It comes with Shimano clipless pedals,
note item is used good working order just had all new cables ( brakes, gears ) fitted by a license giant dealer!
frame aluxx sl 6000 series butted tubing, frame size 50, rims shimano wh-rs10.
Agree nice bike but does sound a bit small. Go into a Giant LBS and get fitted. Similar to Bec I'm 168cm and ride a 50cm Cannondale (48cm Colnago).
Yeah dude from the sounds of things this bike will be too small.
Which is shame!
But don't fool yourself: a cheap bike that fits will be better / faster / more comfortable and used more often than a really expensive bike that doesn't fit.
Fit is paramount.
