Giant TCR W – I guess I can’t deny being a roadie now.

24 Aug
My new 2011 Giant TCR W
My new 2011 Giant TCR W – named Lucy

Introducing my new bike. It is light and fast. The disadvantage is that people are more likely to pull out in front of you if you are doing 30kmh instead of 20-25kmh! Once I get some proper pedals on it and put some kilometres on it I will do a proper review, but as this is my first real roadie I expect it will be glowing. My partner just bought a Pinarello FP2, so I will be able to compare them.

I have a long tradition of naming my bikes, and some names take longer than others. When I was riding this bike home it’s name came to me – Lucy – named after my first dog, because she too was small, fast and light.

    ooooo, yours has the white bar tape as seat like the pictures on the website. Mine was black 😦 But I hope you love yours as much as I love mine! Love your blog!

      you know, white looks good in the photos on the website, but my bar tape is rapidly turning into a dull shade of grey…. the seat is faring slightly better but I did a ride with cheap knicks on it last weekend and now there is this bluish tinge on some bits of it 🙂
