|Giant TCR Elite vs, Giant TCR...||The Flash|
Dec 12, 2002 5:23 PM
So I've narrowed it down to these two frames and have to ask the question...Are the Carbon Seatstays worth it? The frame will cost me and extra $250 to get the Elite vs. the TCR1. I'm a heavier rider (200+) and am wondering how effective these seatstays will be for me. I've loved the all-aluminum frame in the past, but since I have the choice now, please let me know which way you think I should go!

|Also keep in mind that the Elite has a taller headtube, for most people this will allow the bars to be higher without the use of a rise stem or lots of spacers. The chainstays are also longer, making the wheelbase longer and the bike more stable. It was introduced in the line as a more comfortable sport oriented bike, that is why as a complete bike it is only spec'd with triple components.|

|Thanks for the insight. I've been really comfortable on standard Giant Mediums, so I think I'm going to stay with the normal TCR...
