Giant TCR Composite Online?(10 posts)

Giant TCR Composite Online?kinger

Ok, I was shopping for an '02 TCR frame but after riding a couple of the new composites at my local LBS I'm a bit smitten. Man, they ride fantastic. Highly recommend anyone that's interested go take one for a spin around the block.

At any rate, is there anyplace online that one can order the new Giant composite frames?

I road it too this weekend. It kicks. I haven't seen any Giant frames for sale online though, even Google didn't turn up anything. Does Giant sell frames alone?

I just found some 2002 frames on closeout, but no 2003's. Maybe Giant is sending the first shipments as whole bikes to lbs's until they've saturated that market, and then will start sending frames to builders and online stores.

Haven't really seen an US shops selling online. Wonder if Giant prohibits it like Trek.

Try http://fastrackbicycles.com/ Looks like they at least have the complete bikes in stock in all sizes, and I don't think Giant prohibits internet sales.

How much are they with full Ultegra? Full DA? How are they spec'ed out?

From what I've seen at the LBS the ultegra kit goes for $2500 (in-line with the Trek 5200's) and the full Dura-Ace is $3800ish if I recall correctly. The LBS quoted me $1800 for the frame and fork.

And the local bike shop that has one with the full record 10
and campy nucleon wheels tops out right around $4400. Yeow!
Wish the credit card had the space to be accommodating but I
just can't do it! Sigh.
