I'm excited! I have been out of the road bike thing for a while. Had an Allez for a while a couple of years ago, but then I quit riding after my oldest kid was born. That was, hmmm, 7 years ago!

Well, after searching the local bike shops and looking online, I finally got a new bike. It's a Giant TCR C3 (2008 closeout) and I can't wait to go for a real ride with it.

Reviews seem pretty good for the bike, but most importantly, it felt really good in my test ride. Mostly 105 components, except the brakes which are Tiagra. I'll know more about the ride when I get it out on the road.

Anyone here ride a similar bike? Thoughts?

Anyway, I'm really excited, as you can probably tell.

I'll post a real picture when I get back home.

Absolutely useless without the real picture.

That said, enjoy and ride safe.

No picture yet. Still raining and cold outside. Next week is supposed to be sunny and mid-70s. Should be perfect for a ride (and subsequent picture).
