[Giant TCR Advanced SL 1 with Di2]
We just built this new Giant TCR Advanced SL 1 for one of our best customers who wanted the Shimano Dura-Ace group upgraded to the new Dura-Ace Di2 electronic group. The complete bike as pictured weighed 15.75 pounds, so there is very little weight gain going with electronic group. The Fizik handlebar tape in metallic blue complemented the metallic blue Continental GP4000 tires as well as the blue in the frame itself. The saddle is the standby Selle Italia Flite Genuine Gel. Handlebar and stem are Deda Newton 31.7. The Di2 group is rather amazing with very fast shifting. It was a very fun bike to build and was happy to deliver the bike the day before our customer's birthday. What a great way to spend your birthday by riding a new bike!
