I do still like those - just something nice about the shape.

They always look good in white too. I had a first generation aluminium TCR - until some scrotes nicked it.

Always thought about getting another one.
I'm left handed, if that matters.

I know, i went looking for a supersix, and got this!

I looked at the 2012 models and they simply do not look as nice IMO.

First ride on her the other day, realy goes!

The frame aint as light as the nanolight HM it replaced, but it sure feels great.

I was worried about not going for the Advanced, but now been on a proper ride, I dont feel im missing out!

Very nice indeed, looks great in white. What position does this take in your stable, best bike?

Lovely, good to see yet another Giant.

Looks nice in white, with the red touches.

The Zipp stuff really looks pro. Surprised more people don't run it, it's not much more than the 3T stuff which seemed to be a la mode for the last 2 years.

Crack in the top tube, its either paint, or the carbon.

I am waiting for a friend with a good camera to take some pics to contact PX. As its on the white part they are hard to see.
