Racing on an OCR?(3 posts)

Racing on an OCR?Wheelsuker

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'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.
