Any number of things could contribute to the harsher ride on the TCR, but I would say most likely it's tire width or pressure compared to the others. Interestingly, if you look around at reviews, one of the complaints is "too rigid". Which leads to my next thing. Would there be room for wider tires on the TCR like 700x28c? If so, that would improve your ride tremendously.

Is this the bike:

Giant TCR Advanced 2 - K&G Bike Center Kettering Xenia Centerville OH 937-372-2555

It looks like the only parts of the groupo that aren't Shimano 105 are brakes and crankset. Those are still Shimano, but a lower version which are fine. I would trust lower end Shimano cranksets over FSA cranksets any day!
