How did u get a Giant TCR Composite already?!?!?!briko51
Sep 14, 2002 4:43 PM
I know a few guys on here said they have already purchased and received a Giant TCR composite frame. (Beaver for example) Are you sponsored by giant? I went to two LBS's yesterday and was able to get a catalog, but they said the frames wouldn't be available for a few months!

anyone know the prices of the ultegra or dura-ace equipped models? 2300-3500 or so? thanks!

Not sure about the Giant but Trek has prototype OCLV Compacts. Not sure on production as A certain guy with the intials LA politely declined to ride it.
TREK has nothing on GIANTRadicalRonPruitt

GIANT is an innovator and all TREK has going for it is LA.
You know of any pics of the OCLV compact on the net yet? nmfbg111

One of the bike shops in my area already has a TCR Carbon in ONCE colors with a full Record kit. They also have a number of 2003 Carbons on the way. Maybe some shops get different treatment than others depending on how many bikes they sell.

Too bad I can't get a comfortable fit on the Giant compact sizes. They are blowing out 2002 TCR 0s for $1999 with full Dura Ace and Ksyrium SL kits.

The shop is in the Minneapolis / St Paul area if anyone is interested.

Is that shop Bikemasters by any chance? I saw the Carbon
TCR there back in July when I bought my TCR2.

That's a good deal for the TCR0.

Yup
Bikemasters

The owner John seems like a good guy and some real deals could be had for anyone in the market.

Yep - same guy I got my TCR2 from. I saw him today when I
brought my bike in for some minor maintenance and also to
peek at that lovely carbon.

They had a fantastic deal on the TCR2 - $1099. Also, the
OCR Elite with the Campy wheels, brakes and drivetrain (I
think Centaur) for $1399 - I've seen that bike for $2000
previously. It's a medium. They also had a TCR0 that was
calling my name (so was the carbon).

I also found out the inside scoop regarding the Bikemaster
guy they have in the TV ads. Amusing.

Well I'm fortunate enough to have one of the largest Giant dealers in the southeast as my LBS. When the TCR Composite 0 was delivered to the bike shop, they were 1 of 4 shops on the east coast to receive the Composite 0. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
my LBS has had 4 or 5 of themDougSloan

Depends on the shop. Retail at my LBS is around $1400 for frameset.
