TCR full carbon for sale yet?(7 posts)

TCR full carbon for sale yet?tempeteKerouak

I bought a French mag: Le Cycle, Déc 2001. It's a buyer's guide (quite complete and full of stuff never seen in America). On page 91 is a short review of the Giant TCR Composite Team Once.

I also found a picture of it. But I've never seen one. Anybody knows if they'll ever go on a store floor?

The overall weight of the full campy wonder is to cry for, so is the listed price (still less than 4000$ complete top-notch, excepted pedals)

Suddenly, my dreams of a CT1 seem more trivial.

Is this the bike that the manufacturer recommend against leaning or setting your butt on the top tube?

They had a bare frame in my local shop for display. I picked it up and was amazed at how light it was, shame they had to give it back to Giant, I would have got it on the spot.

I asked the same question in my LBS a few weeks ago. My friend there called his Giant Rep and got a response of "They are still going through a R&D process" or something along those lines...I really don't remember exactly.

But I would guess that we will see ONCE riding the carbon frame in the Tour this year and should see them on shop floors this fall. I'm saving my pennies until then.
