|Is there anyone out there racing on a Giant OCR? I just bought one to use as a bike on the trainer, but it seems lighter than my LS Catalyst. I was just curious if the OCR, with my Rolf Sestrieres, makes sense for racing....I rode it once outside..seems a little sluggish, but that could have been my legs.

|sounds like a great bike...ive seen plenty of dudes tearing it up on steel bikes with downtube shifters...it's not about the bike it's about getting out and riding it...|

|OCR geometry is not for racing.
Keeping all other factors equal..the rider on the OCR is at a disadvantage vs. the rider on a race geometry frameset.
