does 1/8" matter?(1 post)

does 1/8" matter?CrazyMan

I'm staring at my Giant TCR frame sitting here and wondering:
Should I build this bike up with the new record kit that's coming in the mail? I mean, with everyone going to 1,1/8" it makes you wonder if there is a noticeable difference (the 2001 tcr had a 1" full carbon steerer on the fork that I have - not a recalled one).
Anyone have any thoughts? TCR owners, are your front ends loose as a noodle, or stiff enough. I owned an XLEV2 which had a super flexy front, so I'm sort of scared to make the same mistake....light, fast, but flexy up front.

Thanks
