Took out my TCR 0 for the first time today and absolutely LOVED it! compared to my now commuter Fuji Roubaix, this thing is a rocket. Up hills, off the accelerator, maneuvering tricky situations--like a tight coil! However, I did find it a bit shaky going downhill. The hill is one i normally feel comfy hitting 44-47 mph (by comfy i mean realtively safe) with no shake. However, on the GIANT i started to feel shake at 34mph (especially when i braked) even though it was ever so slight--it made me wonder.."could it be the compact frame? the vector pro rims? the overall weightlessnes when compared to my beater?" if anyone has any experience with this (or any profoundly well founded knowlege on the topic) let me know.
thanks for looking!

shake? check headset ... mine does not shake at 34. and the my headset is already acting a little screwy ... yours may be a little loose.
and anyway, yes, the TCRs are excellent bikes.
