2012 Giant TCR Advanced 3 (RED)

Postby Dickie Dirt » Sun Feb 17, 2013 11:40 am

Does anyone out there have a 2012 Giant TCR Advanced 3 (105 G/set) in Red and white? I'm trying to decide between 2 bikes and all I can separate them with now is the colour. The Adv. 3 is usually seen in White & black but I've seen side views of the red and white version. I really need more photos of this from other angles. I've searched the net to no avail. Can anyone help?
Thanks

It comes in white and red, not red and white in the UK. Red and white is Australia i think.

Also, it's got a black underside of the downtube, as per the review here http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/category/ ... 3-12-45928

The advanced 2 normally comes in white and black, and also has Ultegra. The advanced 3 is white and red and comes with 105

Yes, I think you are correct in that it is normally the Aussie colour. That said, a UK Giant dealer has them in Red/white but they appear to have a white undeside to the downtube wth black text... (hard to tell with a side-view only) I think it looks a bit of a dog's breakfast compared to the Comp 1 (black/red/white) but am trying to convince myself I can live with it as the frame is 'technically' better!
