Can anyone point me in the right direction in finding
a GT ZR 2 on-line? I've heard they're being blown out at a few different sites- anyone know which ones?? Also, how about the Giant OCR-1? Do I need to upgrade the wheels?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Ok, here are the two I know of.

www.wheelworld.com - the site has all sizes listed as in stock. I'd call first

www.chucksbikes.com - only has them in size 56. Website is fairly lame, but he is legit and I've never had a problem with my orders.

Good Luck!!!
looks like a great bike for the money

I just bought an 2001 OCR 1 from a local shop. The price was amazing because they are looking to make room for 2002 product. I paid $1380 Canadian, which I think is pretty good. I read some reviews that said the wheelset was a little soft, with spokes loosening and coming out of true. I'm surprised since it is a good wheelset (105 hubs, Mavic rims). I traded the stock wheels for a pair of Rolf Vectors before I left the shop. Good decision or not? I don't know. The Rolfs feel great and I haven't had to touch them yet. Time will tell. Try your local shop this time of year... you might be surprised at the clearouts. Good Luck
