Ok, so it's totally in bits right now but it will get better - honest!

I've just stripped all the original 105/Tektro kit off it to make way for a full set of Rival which will be going on pretty soon. The stock bars seem pretty flexy so I'm probably gonna replace them with some 3T Ergosum or Ergonova.

Once I save up a bit more I'm probably gonna get some handbuilt wheels on Kinlin 300/IRD Cadence Aero 30mm rims since they seem to get a pretty good write up.

    i too love the tcr's though was put off buying new due to the level of finishing kit that comes with them which always makes them seem less of a good deal. Wont affect you, and the frames are apparently superb. Can't wait to see the finished article good on you
  • Lovely frame, really like the head tube shape, plus black and red it one of the better looking colour combos!
  • You've not spec'ed your bar tape, I think some red tape would look good.
