123456789101112

bicycle frame material: carbon fiber
bicycle type: road
condition: excellent
frame size: M/L
make / manufacturer: Giant
model name / number: TCR Advanced SL
wheel size: 700C

This is Giant's top-end full-carbon road bike frame - full carbon frame, fork, steerer - with summer-only dry miles on it, and a brand new Ultegra drivetrain, updated with Di2 shifting, Giant aero wheels, DT-Swiss hubs, upgraded super-light/stiff Giant carbon handlebar.

Frameset alone when new was $3100USD (https://www.giant-bicycles.com/us/tcr-advanced-sl-frameset-2012)

This is a size M/L, which is roughly equivalent to typical 57cm road frame. I'm 5'11" and somewhere in the middle of the target size, which I think Giant listed as 5'9" to 6'2".

How many miles on it? I honestly don't know - didn't track them, but it was my "it's gonna be a good day!" steed for five summers, so saw limited use compared to the "it's gonna be a slog in sketchy weather" day.

Summary:
*Frame - if I had to guess, let's say 4000km; but hey - it's carbon fibre; not like it goes soft.
*Chain, cassette, crank - Ultegra - near new (like maybe 100km; took the bike out for a couple rides just to test everything)
*Crank: 53-39 rings / 172.5mm
*Cassette: 11-25 Ultegra
*Shifting: Dura Ace front Di2; Ultegra rear Di2
*Di2 Battery: Less than one full charge cycle on it
*Headset - brand new Giant OEM bearings
*BB - brand new Dura Ace
*Pedals: BYOP (bring your own pedals)
*Wheels: Near new (just like drivetrain) Giant PSLR-1 wheels with carbon aero, DT-Swiss hubs, aero spokes
For an extra $600, upgrade to the pictured Reynolds full-carbon wheels, also with DT-Swiss hubs and spokes

Bonus: Garmin Edge 705 GPS color bike computer, cadence / speed sensor.
