Saw them at Le Tour last year.

Aren't they pretty ? Lovely graphics, but I couldn't ride it - more of a work of art !

Are you a highy trained bike thief or do you have a cycle shop JLK ?

Yeah got one in the shop.

This is 14lbs and every bit awesome. The graphics with all the 'tour' winners is a nice touch.

This one is sold though the gears had to be set up and then ridden to make sure the brakes worked! Well! it was saying ride me Bitch!!!!!!

You did well not to take it up into the hills. Bet it climbs like a rocket !

I didn't want to push my luck and fall off it.

I have a Carbon TCR myself and to be honest they rode very similar. Mine weighs 16lbs with Tri-bars which is still pretty light, but it has more than 99 brothers and sisters.

I may be come that thief and steal this?!

OOoh - nice - I have an alloy TCR for TT's and that's lightish, but never weighed it.

(trying to get an ex WCPP OCLV Trek for the road - Mmmmm !)

Id be a bit careful with those, as my friend and training buddy is on the WCCP and his bike once finished with has had a hard life and screams no more!!

That is the road-team not the tri-team!

The tri-team may not be as hard on them as the road?!

TCR'S are good, with the right kit they always end up being light. And fast!!!!

Spose there is that risk. But seems fine and the groupset is prob worth most of the money anyway.

We've got a guy from our club on the plan too. Those guys are incredible. I swear he's got a motor in his frame.
