Man what a nice bike! The newspaper bartape goes really well with the paint job.
Thanks... I actually got the bar tape from a friend of mine. I took the stem and handlebars off my old bike, and thought the bar tape looked great after it was installed.

sweet!

i like the white a lot. much better than the blue or red, and 10X better than the new yellow on the 2006 comp 1.

i just got myself a 2005 tcr comp 0 on closeout a month ago. can't wait to ride it, but have to wait until april (it's still in the US and I'm in Europe).

You're bound to get some attention riding your Giant here in Europe, it's a different paintjob from what's available here. Always nice to be stand out. ;)

i thought that the giants in the UK had the same graphics, or at least they do this year?

i actually prefer the plain carbon on offer here, but for the price i paid for my bike, i could have only gotten an ultegra TCR.

let's hope the paint job doesn't get the customs folk's attention :)

The UK version looks a bit bland according to Giant's website:



And it's only Ultegra, and insanely expensive. You can get the same bikes in Germany and pay the same amount in Euro instead of Pound Sterling. :eek:

never understood why the UK has such an obscene mark up. the US 2006 TCR Comp 0 has a MSRP of 4,300$, and in the UK it's £3,250 (or 5,747$ !!!!!). that makes my bike 2K cheaper, and with DA cranks :)

the UK TCR Comp 0 (like i thought - the same graphics as the US '06 tcr comp 0)

Nice ride. I bet the black weaved frame looks a lot more dramatic in person
BTW, Just remember to have the Captain Morgan after your ride. Be safe
Don't drink and drive :D
