After a few weeks of waiting I've finally picked up my new Giant TCR Advanced Pro 2.

Not the most exciting paint job but I like it.

Only one ride so far but the new 11spd 105 is really solid, pretty much no difference to Ultegra!

Will need some new wheels but they will do for the moment.

    Does the bike come with that number of steerer tube spacers as standard? Always wondered why Giant show the TCR models with the stem slammed on their previous years website, whereas the Defy bikes were shown with spacers. I note that for the 2015 website all models appear to be slammed/have minimum number of spacers.

    The spacers are standard, I've been off the road for a couple of months so going to be dropping them down to about half the current height over the next few weeks to ease myself back to the usual height..

    I was surprised by the white saddle too, seemed an odd choice, I usually have white bar tape though and will be switching out the bars at some point and re-wrapping them with white.

    Also will be swapping out the tyres to 25s asap, forgot how much harsher 23s are!
