    Easiest way with flickr is as follows.

    Click on the photo you wish to show, drop down the action tab, view all sizes, select medium 640, then right click on it and copy image address. Then paste into Bike Radar. Lastly highlight the recently pasted text and then click the Img tab just above. This will create and embedded hyper link.

    In the meantime, your bike looks, SMOKING. Nice work and the red text and white wheel decal works a treat.

    The OP must live in/near Buckinghamshire. I recognise my cycling club jersey (High Wycombe CC) in some of his photos :)

    Nice bike :)
  • Thanks bristolpete, works a treat now.

    @The Mad Rapper, I'm actually down Kent way. The pics are from the Hillingdon Winter Series where a few mates have been racing over the winter.

    Looks great but definitely deserves some better composed photos.

    Love the look of it, but is it the Advanced or the Advanced SL? I thought it was the TCR Advanced that had the rear wheel scoop bit on the seat tube?
  • napoleondnapoleond Posts: 5,990
    The SL does too...

    :idea:

    ISP versus non ISP. One seat tube needs to accommodate the wide profile aero seat post, the ISP frame doesn't, hence the thinner seat tube.

    Obvious really. :oops:
  • Spot on siamon. It is indeed an SL with the non ISP seatpost hence the rear wheel scoop to accommodate the seat post.

    I forgot to mention that (IMHO) this frame set is the true connoisseurs choice.

    Not usually a fan of Giant's. But that is awesome. Enjoy riding it.

    I know what you mean: this frame doesn't look so much like the ones from Giant's release. I was confused too.
  • Well finally have had a chance to get some decent pictures outside in better light and thought I would share.

    I have to say having had a chance to get in a good few rides now it rides like an absolute dream and is everything you would expect from this level of bike. The most impressive thing is how stiff it is and you can feel every bit of power going through the pedals and when your accelerating it just wants to jump forward.
